I see me and you in this love scene but it's a film that only plays in my head
'Cause I crashed my car and you still didn't notice me
I run errands for Salvador
I work the Porn Palace door

That guy you wrapped yourself round, don't you know he's a cop?
That parking lot's some holy place, 'cause the first time I saw you was there
A honey bagel in your hand
You in a candy-striped Alice band

I read about a girl jumped off a bridge with her dog in her arms
And I thought of you, they said she had a spectacular smile,
Some days I feel like I'm falling apart
Like I'm God's broken heart

I watched you up on the stage singing doo-wop with some Latino girls
You sang pretty good, is it true you were once in love with a priest?
I'll bet he's staring into a glass somewhere,
Like he sees his whole past in there

So I found out your name from this lap dancer I know,
I like to say it out loud, it's like waves breaking on Cuban sand
But here the long afternoon shadows fall
On the strip joint wall

I hear you're going back to Santa Clara soon
