paint the stars in the sky
on the ceiling
above our bed

roll through the night
with your blood
beating hard like a drum
inside my head

paint the stars in the sky
that were shining
on the night we met

if we can do this then
we can do anything

throw the clothes
in a pile in the corner
on the dirty wood floor

open up the big windows
and throw a chain on the
double locked door

open up to the flame
so strong
it feels so good
even though
we know that it's wrong

when we make love
i feel complete
like i can do anything

we can lose ourselves
to the faraway sound
of the noise of the boulevard

we can lose ourselves
tonight
underneath the western stars

the wind sounds just like the ocean
blowing big through the trees
in my backyard

i sit alone in a dark room
smoking
and wondering
where you are

you went away when the truth came down
the sex was not enough for you
to make you want
to stick around

you said that
i made you feel weak
i made you feel like you couldn't do anything

i try to sing myself to sleep
to the rythym of the sound
of the boulevard cars

i lay awake
with my eyes
wide open
underneath the western stars

hard promises broken
that should have never been made

you were cold in your anger
i was warm in the shame

i don' t have any illusions
of the good old days

if we make it through this
then i know that ....

we can do anything

we can do anything

i going to walk all the steps
and find a place where i can lie

lay on my back
in the grass
and stare at the stars
in the warm night sky

i' m going to find me a new blonde girl
hungry
for the things
that don't come easy
in the real world

she will let me
be myself

i know
she will let me do anything

we can lose ourselves
making love all night
on a blanket
in the neighborhood park

we can lose ourselves
making love
all night
underneath the western stars

we can lose ourselves
tonight
underneath the western stars....

hard promises broken
should have never been made

you were cold in your anger
i was warm in the shame

i don' t have any illusions
of the good old days

if i can make it through this
then i know
that i can do anything

i can do anything
