I met you at the frosted fun
Watchin those counters trip everyone
And we boxed up all our bad ideas
Like the one where you thought of me as
A freshly painted city sign
That spells out all those parking fines

In the damp and shiny pavement path
Where drifters escape the weather’s wrath
And the starry freckled parchment face
The urban cell phone transit pace

In this world of powerful distractions
We lose our place and our traction

Remember the time we met
Down in the smoky oubliette
And the whiskey and sarcasm
Ignited and lit up the chasm

To serve your pleasure center
Obey your childhood mentor
The accidental redial suggests that we’ll be here awhile

And the taxi driver waits outside
The incorrigible just missed a ride
And he’ll linger long past last call
A night spent alone after all

Rpt chorus
