lyrics

I smell the coffee on the bus
Feel around for my glasses in a rush
And I wonder when I’ll return to my home
If the band books another furlough

Anytime the breezes blow through these songs
Open arms and take a breath to breathe you in
If only for a moment I were the elastic on your belt
I’d relax for just a second and sin

Somewhere in vacant lots there’s a part for me
A part for me and my Marie to some degree
Some degree of purpose and a baby born to be
A baby who’s born to be

Stop and dust the hood off my old car
Hard to believe a '73
Could purr like this, wish my heart could hum like this
But I’m leaving back to the show

As I passed our old house in the bug
Pause and close my eyes and dream of then
Imagine if I were the perfume on your neck
I’d drip down your valley and sin

Somewhere in vacant lots there’s a part for me
A part for me and my Marie to some degree
Some degree of purpose and a baby born to be
A baby who’s born to be
