In the dark of the night, by the sapphire
I gave a nod to a girl.
And she looked like she was looking at the specter.
Then she kind of smiled and turned.

I knew the back of your hand like the back of my hand.
We used to go like red and black.
And it's so strange to feel this distance where there was once love.

I'm alive like the sound of the wrecking crew.
I'm alone with the lights of the avenue.
I don't know if I know where I'm going to.
But that's okay.
I've got a clean slate.

There's a kid who bangs a drum on the corner.
And I'm walking to the time.
This persistent, solitary rhythm.
It's an urban lullaby.

I knew the back of your hand like the back of my hand.
We used to go like red and black.
And it's so strange to feel this distance where there was once love.

I'm alive like the sound of the wrecking crew.
I'm alone with the lights of the avenue.
I don't know if I know where I'm going to.
But it's okay.
I've got a clean slate.

I'm alive like the sound of the wrecking crew.
I'm alone with the lights of the avenue.
I don't know if I know where I'm going to.
But it's okay.
I've got a clean slate.

I'm alive like the sound of the wrecking crew.
I'm alone with the lights of the avenue.
I don't know if I know where I'm going to.
But it's okay.
I've got a clean slate.
