It’s five of nine and I’m over you
I’m wanna do whatever this empty bottle tells me to
And I’m so excited that I feel no pain
Finally everything’s right in place with heart again
And there no ends I can see
There’s nothing but the summer in me

Sing hey, la de day
I come out tonight
I look to get lost in the black and the white
Put the colors in me
Remembering when
I start looking over my shoulder again
Over your shoulder

It’s a holiday weekend, only twelve twenty five
I walk down to this neighborhood place and I’m feeling alive
It’s trapped in the alley and the lighting is fair
And a bartender’s laughing with strangers, I reach from the wall and pull up a chair
Singing “luck be a lady, this is where I belong”
And I know that you’re somewhere singing along

Sing hey, la de day
I come out tonight
I look to get lost in the black and the white
Put the colors in me
Remembering when
I start looking over my shoulder again
Over your shoulder

There once was a dozen now there’s only a few
It’s just past one thirty and I’m over you
And there in across town shadows I steal away
And I let a gin shot of whiskey take a good man back to his yesterdays
And it starts me on thinking that you should have stayed
And I think about sleeping tonight in the bed that you made

Sing hey, la de day
I come out tonight
I look to get lost in the black and the white
Put the colors in me
Remembering when
I start looking over my shoulder again
Over your shoulder
