When the days go drifting backwards
And old friends' voices chew the air
Well, the shells make my get seasick
I know the ocean isn't really living there
And pendulum doesn't swing for passion
And the even whore can't make those stubborn hands freeze
But sometimes just a soft light lit in a bedroom
Can bring a tired traveller to his knees
She said if you come to me
I'll make it easy
If you come to me
I'll make it easy for you
So when you come to me
You can breathe freely
And I'll let you stand a while on my side
Stand a while on my side
Stand a while on my side of the blues

Well, praise be to the rolling graveyards
And to the heroes with their necklaces of seaweed
Cinderella's got to be home before midnight
So St. Christopher don't ever have to leave
And here's a toast to all the furious seasons
That went and stole the blood out of baby's cheeks
Though she was a one who always come so close to smiling
She made crying seem like Christmas Eve
And she said if you come to me
I'll make it easy
If you come to me
I'll make it easy for you
So when you come to me
You can breathe freely
And I'll let you stand a while on my side
Stand a while on my side
Stand a while on my side of the blues

Well tattoo body wrote himself into a fable
The story of the pine needle and the sheep
They found him hibernating beneath the coffee table
It turned out it was actually a human sleep
And the trees forgave the fire that went on burning
'Til hope was all it left when the smoke cleared
I'll forgive her body for deserting
Soon as I recall why mine's still here
She said if you come to me
I'll make it easy
If you come to me
I'll make it easy for you
So when you come to me
You can breathe freely
And I'll let you stand a while on my side
Stand a while on my side
Stand a while on my side of the blues

So the days launch forward, leaving memories
Dragging swollen clouds across a robin's egg
Like the begger, I know I'm bound to get clean eventually
If I just keep walking up and down the street
Up and the down the street
