Dance on ceilings,
Like you do,
Sparkled earrings,
You cling to,
Your skipping heart beats in the room,
Every eye is on you,
They're making movies about you now,
Of how he played guitar for you.

So paint the lines beneath your eyes,
To hide the pain beneath the lies,
You're chasing streetlights home tonight,
You're chasing streetlights home.

Telling tales like you do,
So off the rails,
Breaking rules,
The fluttered lashes you see through,
You catch his eye across the room,
You took his breath away as you moved,
You couldn't change if you wanted to.
He called you his rolling stone.
Should you roll away home now?

So paint the lines beneath your eyes,
To hide the pain beneath your lies,
You're chasing streetlights home tonight,
You're chasing streetlights home.
You'll never change,
You'll never know,
You'll never grow.
The camera rolls so dance away another show.

The tears have dried,
Your world collides,
Falling through in black and white,
Your face still glows it's all for show,
Your words grow old without you.

But paint the lines beneath your eyes,
To hide the pain beneath your lies,
You're chasing streetlights home tonight,
You're chasing streetlights home.
You'll never change,
You'll never know,
You'll never grow.
The camera rolls so dance away another show.

    General CommentYeah, i think it is about edie sedgwick. There were many much darker parts of her life (such as domestic violence, abuse of illegal drugs and alcohol and physical illness) that she kept hidden from the press. This is reflected by this song, in the chorus especially. Also, Bob Dylans song "Like a rolling stone" was also meant to be inspired by her, which would fit with the line 'He called you his rolling stone'.

    I love this song, and I was very interested to learn about the background behind it.
