Verse 2Some way to greet the year: your eyes all bright and brimmed with tears. The pilgrims, pills and tourist here all sing "Fifty three bucks to buy a brand new halo." I'm sweet on a green-eyed girl, all fiery Irish clip and curl, all brine and piss and vinegar. I paid twenty-five vents to light a little white candle.
ChorusAnd the world maybe be long for you, but he'll never belong to you. But on a motorbike, when all the city lights blind your eyes, are you feeling better now?
