Verse 1I hear you've got a pocket full of words That you keep in the garage Together with the feather and the fireworks A surftown hero who's got one foot in the garden Where the neon-lighted cocktail glasses bloom And they built you a model airplane Like the one that brought you back to Lindbergh field Now you're counting your change by the streetlights on India "Hey, it's me again, I'm faded...could I please come over?"
ChorusYou can do what you want In umbilical town In a waterfront bar
Verse 2Old gap-toothed Annie was a friend of mine The third time around she was born again She must have burned at least a half-a-million dollars In the little rooms next door to wash-and-fold And there ain't no consolation prize There is no backdoor to innocence Just the wild-eyed faces and names that you've forgotten "Hey, the money's gone, I'm broken, could I please come over?"
