lyrics

When all the worn out lovers are all taken in
And the earth uncovered we will start again
There's a war out in the holy city night
There's a young man running from a pack of knives
And the sage he's speaking to the sleeping heards
While the visionary is always called absurd
Oh that poor girl she was born with out a chance
The incarnation of the everlong romance
And you give real good lovin'
Just like I've had before
So tonight I'm staying up
Find a stranger and take em' out
Give a laugh and raise a cup
For the going down
And the widows crying while the thief is prying
The get away car it waits outside lost dream bar
But I'm all right now baby we all bleed sometimes
I'm just waiting down here to awaken life
And you give real good lovin'
Just like I've had before
So tonight I'm staying up
Find a stranger and take em' out
Give a laugh and raise a cup
For the going down
Oh lover I'm inspired
By the life and by the fire
I'm a wandering war
