I went to a party
The party came to nothing
I got there early and I drank for dear life
I met a girl there
She looked like the Virgin Mary
She had a tatoo that looked like a gun
I'm sure that there were other people at this party
But I couldn't tell you who and neither could she
She had a stun-gun, a lasso, and a tractor beam
And we were locked on target when I threw away my keys

And I wouldn't trade that night for a sky-blue '57
By seven come eleven we were leanin' on the dawn
Skippin past the salt pillars
Where everybody turns back
Hell-bent and heart-first into the great long gone

Lazy drunken moon
Passed out in the branches
A fit of stars in my favorite piece of sky
And as the night stood still beside us
We used that perfect moment to talk about
Miami Vice's pilot episode
Cause it really didn't matter
We were already junkies
15 minutes in we were retarded in love
And they say love is like the movies
But it felt more like a cartoon
I got a halo of star and an anvil on my head


And I wouldn't trade that night for a sky-blue '57
By seven come eleven we were leanin' on the dawn
Skippin past the salt pillars
Where everybody turns back
Hell-bent and heart-first into the great long gone
Hell-bent and heart-first into the great long

Five years have passed now
Like unopened letters
I setteled down and took that girl for my wife
We both work hard to feed the children
But our dreams are slowly starving
Nothing scars you deeper than the things you haven't done
But in the cool of the evening
We fall together burning
We never bring up the things we set aside
Cause it was worth all the hard times
Worth all that heartache
Hell, it was worth it all if it was only for that night

And I wouldn't trade that night for a sky-blue '57
By seven come eleven we were leanin' on the dawn
Skippin' past the salt pillars
Where everybody turns back
Hell-bent and heart-first into the great long gone
Hell-bent and heart-first
Hell-bent and heart-first
Hell-bent and heart-first into the great long
