Well I hung around like cigarette smoke on your jacket
And in the motel rooms the lullaby was the sound of traffic
And the pretty girls on the avenue they give it up for free
I stand in a streetlight so everyone can see I’m so lonely without you

Chorus:
Baby sing me to sleep turn down the covers ‘cause talk is cheap
Baby sing me to sleep ah turn out the lights
Remember the nights when the rain fell eighteen inches deep
Baby sing me to sleep

And at closing time we’re a nickel and a dime
In the deep back pocket of America
Trying to find wings or something to carry you home
Right now you better make the best of your situation
Escape through a hole in the conversation
The sun comes up like a revelation and I’m so lonely without you

Repeat chorus

But you came up like a wind came up like a weed
All black and blue all lipstick and need
To dig a hole in your heart to bury the doubts
She holds the bottle like a gun in her mouth

You head downtown in your black leather jacket
You’re getting old now but you still stop traffic
The sun comes slow like it’s thinking it over
The moon shoots a dirty look over it’s shoulder
And I’m so lonely without you
