Saw you take it on the chin outside the Phoenix Motor Inn
You could always find the way to kill the bird and keep the flames
Somehow lighter on your feet, crossing the dark end of the street
Falling harder than a star because you could hear the broken heart within the world
Within the world, that ain't your song, no no, you won't sing along

Mission bugs out every night, they throw themselves into the light
Always waking from a dream of blowing up and burning clean
So you cold and getting wet, sucking the ends of cigarettes
You learn how to love a scar because you could hear a broken heart
But you won't sing that sad song
Saw you run and hide, saw you slide across the sky
But I never saw you down on my side of the road

Saw you take it on the chin and fix it back with bobby pins
Saw you lose before the start, I saw you shining in the dark
Saw you change, saw you choke, saw you running out of rope
Saw you shaking off the blues, saw you recognize a tune
But you won't sing that sad song
Frisco is too much for me too bear
I thought for sure you'd need me there
But I never saw you down on my side of the road
