lyrics

Rent’s late again, skies are all gray
You wish you could be 100 miles away
If you only had the money you’d go
She’s complaining again, about this, that, and drinking:
“Don’t you know, can’t you see
how low you’ve been sinking?”
All you know is that you don’t want to know
All the dreams you had last night are all gone
Scattered like moonlight with the morning sun

You hear the wind whisper as it blows where it will
And the rain tapping on the bar windowsill
You sit there waiting for some kind of sign
Close your eyes, remember old times, old places
All names forgotten, but you still see the faces
Till you’re brought back to New York
By the passing subway line
All the dreams you had last night are all gone
Scattered like moonlight with the morning sun

Starting to feel the sharp pinch of hope
But the end of your money, the end of your rope
Are all that’s ever left to you at the end of the day
Pick up the receiver, listen to the tone
Try to remember her number
And how to dial a phone
Try to remember what you meant to say
All the dreams you had last night are all gone
Shattered like moonlight with the morning sun
And all the things she said still cut to the bone
But fade into the distance, like the last train going home
