They come from every state to find
Some dreams were meant to be declined
Tell the man what did you have in mind
What have you come to do

No turning water into wine
No learning while you're in the line
I'll take you to the broken sign
You see the lights are blue

Come and get it
Lost it at the city limit
Say goodbye
Cause they will find a way to trim it
Everybody
Lookin' for a silly gimmick
Gotta get away
Can't take it for another minute

This town is made of many things
Just look at what the current brings
So high it's only promising
This place was made on you

Tell me baby what's your story
Where you come from
And where you wanna go this time
Tell me lover are you lonely
The thing we need is
Never all that hard to find
Tell me baby what's your story
Where do you come from
And where you wanna go this time
Your so lovely are you lonely
Giving up on the innocence you left behind

Some claim to have the fortitude
To shrewd to blow the interlude
Sustaining pain to set a mood
Step out to be renewed

I'll move you like a baritone
Jungle brothers on the microphone
Getting over with an undertone
It's time to turn to stone

Chitty chitty baby
When your nose is in the nitty gritty
Life could be a little sweet
But life could be a little shitty
What a pity
Boston and a kansas city
Looking for a hundred
But you only ever found a fitty

Three fingers in the honeycomb
You ring just like a xylophone
Devoted to the chromosome
The day that you left home

Tell me baby, whats the story?
Where you come from
And where you gonna go this time
Tell me lover, are you lonely?
The thing we need is never all that hard to find
Tell me baby, whats your story?
Where do you come from
And where you wanna go this time?
You're so lovely, are you lonely?
Giving up on the innocence you left behind

Tell me baby, whats the story?
Where you come from
And where you gonna go this time
Tell me lover, are you lonely?
The thing we need is never all that hard to find
Tell me baby, whats your story?
Where do you come from
And where you wanna go this time?
You're so lovely, are you lonely?
Giving up on the innocence you left behind

    General CommentWhy did you even post these lyrics?

    Anyhoo lyrics aside it's a great song. Funky with a really mellow chorus, I'd say it's Funkello or mellunk!

    General CommentI like this song. Its kinda hard to say what exactly the song means when you can't really hear what Anthony is saying.

    I always thought it was "The thing we need is never all that hard to find"

    General Commentlets get some correcting going man!!! below are the CORRECT lyrics!!!

    They come from every state to find
    Some dreams were meant to be defined
    Tell the man what did you have in mind
    What have you come to do?

    No turning water into wine
    No learning while you're in the line
    I'll take you to the broken sign
    You see these lights are blue

    Come and get it
    Lost it at the city limit
    Say goodbye
    'Cause they will find a way to trim it
    Everybody
    Looking for a silly gimmick
    Gotta get away
    Can't take it for another minute

    This town is made of many things
    Just look at what the current brings
    So high it's only promising
    This place was made on you

    Tell me baby, whats the story?
    Where you come from
    And where you gonna go this time
    Tell me lover, are you lonely?
    The thing we need is never all that hard to find
    Tell me baby, whats your story?
    Where do you come from
    And where you wanna go this time?
    You're so lovely, are you lonely?
    Giving up on the innocence you left behind

    Some claim to have the fortitude
    Too shrew to blow the interlude
    Sustaining pain to set a mood
    Step out to be renewed

    I'll move you like a baritone
    Jungle brothers on the microphone
    Getting over with an undertone
    Its time to turn to stone

    Chitty chitty baby
    When your nose is in the nitty gritty
    Life could be a little sweet
    But life could be a little shitty
    What a pity
    Boston and kansas city
    Looking for a hundred
    But you only ever found a fifty

    Three fingers in the honeycomb
    You ring just like a xylophone
    Devoted to the chromosone
    The day you left that home

    Tell me baby, whats the story?
    Where you come from
    And where you gonna go this time
    Tell me lover, are you lonely?
    The thing we need is never all that hard to find
    Tell me baby, whats your story?
    Where do you come from
    And where you wanna go this time?
    You're so lovely, are you lonely?
    Giving up on the innocence you left behind

    Tell me baby, whats the story?
    Where you come from
    And where you gonna go this time
    Tell me lover, are you lonely?
    The thing we need is never all that hard to find
    Tell me baby, whats your story?
    Where do you come from
    And where you wanna go this time?
    You're so lovely, are you lonely?

    General Commentas for the meaning.. well at one of the promo gigs, he said it's about a river that runs into LA, and that works superficially. However i think it's more about the people that move from all over the US to LA to realise their dream of being famous. and the chorus is like him speaking to one of these people, asking about where they came from, and what they want to achieve in Hollywood.

    that's my take, any other ideas?
