La da da da di da da da
La da da di da di da

La di da da da la di da da da
La da da di da di da

Downtown where we walk the streets
So beautiful and fly
Such a scenestress but such a glow
Gonna make you mine

La da da da di da da da
La da da di da di da

I've been up all night
So glamorous
Waiting for your call
Its a long way to go
And I dont know if I will make it
I wanna know if you still love me
Take me far

Hey hey you wanna be a star
Clutter up my sky
We all paid for your big cigars
Your diamonds and your lies

La da da da di da da da
La da da di da di da

We all want a chance at the dirty life
Baby you are mine

Its a long way to go
And I dont know if I will make it
I wanna know if you still love me
Take me far away

Youre so precious. so damn precious.

La da da da di da da da
La da da di da di da
La di da da da la di da da da
La da da di da di da

Its a long way to go
And I dont know if I will make it
I wanna know if you still love me
Take me far a long way
Take me far away

    General CommentIF I had to pitchs a guess I would say this song is about a man who is in love with a woman whose career would take her away from him, and too stay with her he must quit his job and be unorthodox to keep her. In other words he is risking his life to share it with hers. or it could be about some pirates how the hell should I know?!

    General CommentI think its more hes a "pirate" maybe a thief or just a person who wanders around looking for adventure and he never really stays in one place and it sounds like he falls in love with a rich girl who is married and he feels that she and he husband are living off the tax payers or something along that line and he loves her and he tells her that he will stop drifting if she loves him and he wants her to take him away from her husband her old life and his wandering


    at least thats just a guess
