Open minds
And open skies
All dolled up
And can’t place why
They were burning through the heat
And the heat burned through the sky

Ever since they were young
Two things were never spared
Summer time was theirs
And there was no time left to care

Let it breath
Take your shoes off
Live and dangerous
Something splendorous
A reckless summer
Is a glorious mess
Whole journey got to be an uptown odyssey

Now they thought
The right price
Would buy them anything
But seasons change
And oceans rage
And life ain’t as cheap as it seems

In the months
Their innocence began to fade
They were 17 years old
Felt like bird let out of a cage

Live and dangerous
Something splendorous
A reckless summer
Is a glorious mess
Whole journey got to be an uptown odyssey

When they hit the city
Thought like they had seen it all
There were people moving everywhere
And the buildings standing tall
Black and white
Frames so bright
Now in color dark as night
Like dreaming through your sleep
Or waking and your flying

Live and dangerous
Something splendorous
A reckless summer
Is a glorious mess
Whole journey got to be an uptown odyssey
