"Red Hands and White Knuckles" as written by and Samuel Bingham Endicott....
She could be found out dancin'
At Ludlow st. and Stanton
Oh, you should've seen her
Shake it up like Orangina.
And even though she's a liar
We got on like a house on fire.
Even though she's my friend
We never knew when to say when
Every little move she made was a ticker tape parade
And everything she'd say was a national holiday
And even though she's a liar
No one ever got me higher
And even though she's my friend
We never knew when to say when

With red hands and white knuckles
I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on
With red hands and white knuckles
I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on

She was at thompkin square
Staring at the grass
Trying to make her eyes turn green
But it never last
And even though she's a liar
No one ever got me higher
Cuz we never knew when to say when
Even though she was my friend

With red hands and white knuckles
I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on
With red hands and white knuckles
I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on

Over on 5th and C
She got her beers for free
And every time I came in there
She always laughed at me
She said, "Who let this child in here?"
You look like you teach math
Your appled eyes betray
You've never known loneliness

With red hands and white knuckles
I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on
With red hands and white knuckles
I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on

    General Commentshe could be found out dancin'
    at ludlow st. and stanton
    oh you should've seen her
    shake it up like Orangina.
    and even though she's a liar
    we got on like a house on fire.
    even though she's my friend
    we never knew when to say when
    every little move she made was a ticker tape parade
    and everything she'd say was a national holiday
    and even though she's a liar
    no one ever got me higher
    and even though she's my friend
    we never knew when to say when

    with red hands and white knuckles
    I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on
    with red hands and white knuckles
    I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on

    she was at thompkin square

    trying to make her eyes turn green
    but it never last
    and even though she's a liar

    with red hands and white knuckles
    I tried to hold on, I tried to hold on

    Song MeaningSam said this song's about NYC. And so it is. But I also think, if you want, you can refer this song for a friend that you know for you is more than a friend, and she kinda feels the same just sometimes. So that you never find the moment when you can show your love (spiritual o sexual).
