I was threadbare, I was skinned up knees
By 7th street you were an afterthought to me
Yeah, I was sunk with both my land legs broke
I was a shipwreck by age 23

But you were a dream or you were sleeping pills
When you bid the auctioneer come down
And there in the dark you took a shine to me
Said 'look at you now babe, look at you now, look at you now babe
You're quite a sight to see'

I was a tumbleweed with a history
Just letting the wind find her breath inside of me
When you shined your light into my demon sky
Just to hang a little love up high
Where no one else dared to climb

But you were a dream or you were sleeping pills
When you bid the auctioneer come down
And there in the dark you took a shine to me
Said 'look at you now babe, look at you now, look at you now babe, look at you now
You're quite a sight'

It seems you take the world of the world off my shoulders
At least when I hold you, she just lets go
And ticking clocks stop when our lips lock

You
You were a dream or you were sleeping pills
You bid the auctioneer come down
And there in the dark you took a shine to me
Said 'look at you now babe, look at you now, look at you now babe
You're quite a sight to see'
