lyrics

Church bells were ringing
The whole world was spinning
A carnival ride on the Fourth of July
Hands wrapped in mittens
Rainbows and ribbons
Snow in my pocket and God on our side
When we danced in the parking lot all afternoon
You sang at the stars while I smiled at the moon
And I've never met someone the least bit like you
In this town called Earth.

Pictures of poppies
Notes stained with coffee
Buried beneath the discrete wheels of time
Hearts drawn with vigor
And headaches from liquor
Rips in the bed where our legs intertwined
You cried in the kitchen when we said we were through
I tried not to let on that I was scared too
I still haven't met anyone quite like you
In this town called Earth.

And the trumpets sang
Dadadada ...

Gray misty morning
The sirens come soaring
I wake up alone I suppose I'm alright
Strolling down Broadway
Where milkmen and mermaids
Elope with the hope that their hearts will survive
I put on my poncho and face the monsoon
My head in my hat and me feet in my shoes
I know I'll find someone though she may not be you
In this town called Earth.
