Safe at home as the sun sets
Cry me a river
Or sing me a song
One about your life
Where nothing is sacrificed
I am a new man
Or no one at all

You and me, we're the shortest answer
To my little question
I'm just hanging around
If I could be that young
How could I be that dumb?
The tears of a class clown
Oh yeah, they're drowning the city

And build the shopping malls
And paint the parking stalls
And tie your hair back
In your work-stained overalls

I know I've done my part
I know these roads by heart
And I could close my eyes and find my way
I'd find my way (x2)

And I hope you figure out
That I was only joking

And in my car I ride the eastern hillside
Rollin' another and lightin' it up
'Cause it's the only way
At least that's what I say
I'm burning forever with the lights of the city

Sing that song about laying back and sprawling out
And give me something that I just can't live without
For all the times I have tried by the water side
Just to close my eyes and find my way
Find my way (x3)

But you'll never figure out
That I was only joking
