Where Are You Tonight?
There's a long-distance train rolling through the rain, tears on the letter i write.
There's a woman i long to touch and i miss her so much but she's drifting like a
Satellite. there's a neon light ablaze in this green smoky haze, laughter down on
And a lonesome bell tone in that valley of stone where she bathed in a stream of pure
Heat. her father would emphasize you got to be more than street-wise but he practiced
What he preached from the heart.
A full-blooded cherokee, he predicted to me the time and the place that
The trouble would start.
There's a babe in the arms of a woman in a rage
And a longtime golden-haired stripper onstage
And she winds back the clock and she turns back the page
Of a book that no one can write.
Oh, where are you tonight?
The truth was obscure, too profound and too pure, to live it you have to explode.
In that last hour of need, we entirely agreed, sacrifice was the code of the road.
I left town at dawn, with marcel and st. john, strong men belittled by doubt.
I couldn't tell her what my private thoughts were but she had some way of finding
Them out. he took dead-center aim but he missed just the same, she was waiting,
Flowers on the shelf.
She could feel my despair as i climbed up her hair and discovered her invisible self.
There's a lion in the road, there's a demon escaped,
There's a million dreams gone, there's a landscape being raped,
As her beauty fades and i watch her undrape,
I won't, but then again, maybe i might.
Oh, if i could just find you tonight.
I fought with my twin, that enemy within, 'til both of us fell by the way.
Horseplay and disease is killing me by degrees while the law looks the other way.
Your partners in crime hit me up for nickels and dimes, the guy you were lovin'
Couldn't stay clean.
It felt outa place, my foot in his face, but he should-a stayed where his money was
I bit into the root of forbidden fruit with the juice running down my leg.
Then i dealt with your boss, who'd never known about loss and who always was
Too proud to beg.
There's a white diamond gloom on the dark side of this room and a pathway that leads
Up to the stars.
If you don't believe there's a price for this sweet paradise, remind me to show you the
There's a new day at dawn and i've finally arrived.
If i'm there in the morning, baby, you'll know i've survived.
I can't believe it, i can't believe i'm alive,
But without you it just doesn't seem right.
Oh, where are you tonight?
