one way street

The stars and a moon

Aren’t where they’re supposed to be

For the strange electric light

It falls so close to me

Love, I come to ride

High on that seasick rolling wave

And you know that I am

Just trying to get out

Oh the glorious sound

Oh the one way street

But you can’t get

Can’t get it down without crying

When I’m dressed in white

Send roses to me

I drink so much sour whiskey I can’t hardly see

And everywhere I’ve been

There’s a well that howls my name

From the one tiny sting

To that vacant fame

Oh the deafening roar

Remember that’s called a one way street

And you can’t get

Can’t get it down without crying

Mystery’s a sigh

You can’t get out

In a psychotropic light, you can’t get out

Love, I come to ride

High on that seasick rolling wave

That’s the way that I fall, trying to get out

Oh the glorious sound

Of the one way street

And you can’t get

Can’t get it down without crying

Oh the deafening roar

It’s called a one way street
