Hey Janey, where you been lately
I've been looking for you down on Sullivan Street
With your beat-up car and your bass guitar
And your skinny, winning grin
All the birthday candles melted away
The colors running everywhere
Yeah the flame burned down in this party town
Man, I've been missing that light

I keep looking for you
In the stoplight cars and the blue jean bars downtown
There were a couple of things I really wanted to say, but Janey you're not around
I keep looking for you
I keep looking for you

You and Amy and me watched for shooting stars
In that vacant lot up on Lookout Road
But your head hung down, staring at the ground
You never saw that light
Those rocks went blazing across the sky
Like they were trying to show us how to fly
But you weren't like me, didn't have to see
You were already burning into the night

I keep looking for you
in the rusty park and the smoky stars at night
There were a couple of things I wanted to say, but anyway, I hope you're all right
I keep looking for you
I keep looking for you

When Amy told me you were gone
I didn't even believe her
And there's nothing left that's burning now
But the ashes and the fever

I still turn down Sullivan once in a while
When I've got something to do in your old neighborhood
And I know you're gone, but I hear that song
And I can't help looking for you
I keep looking for you
I keep looking for you
