15 minutes and I’m on my own
I’ve got my bag I’ve got my clothes
Everybody’s going to the picture show
I’ve got fifteen minutes and I’m on road

She sits alone in her studio
Blood on her hands and a fresh sack of blow
And I’ve got a friend in San Francisco
Who says, “Fuck, Philadelphia bring me home"

And you were dead center in the middle of the street
Got your hands in your pockets and smoke in your teeth
You’ve got a kiss on your lips that you’ve saved for me
I’ve got a real bad temper and it’s hurtin on me
And it’s hurtin on you
And it’s hurtin on me
And it’s hurtin on you

She’s got her wits about her and I know this true
Cause if you don’t hate the city then the city hates you
We’re lucky if we don’t make front page news
With our hands in our pockets and my lips on you

Everybody’s leaving but they don’t know where
Nobody knows and nobody cares
I’ll give you all my money get me out of here
I’ll sing far away so I disappear
I’ll sing far away till I disappear
I’ll sing far away, far away from here

She asks, “Can you please turn the car around?
You see I wanna run away, but I don’t know how
There’s a boy that I know with dirt on his feet
You know I think that I’m in love and it’s hurtin on me
And it’s hurtin on him
And it’s hurtin on me
And it’s hurtin on him"

Everybody’s leaving but they don’t know where
Nobody knows and nobody cares
I’ll give you all my money get me out of here
I’ll sing far away so I disappear

The marrow in my bones does the twist and shout
And my organ’s playing hymns singing let me out
My head wants to know what all the fuss is about
And my heart tells my head that I think too loud
The marrow in my bones does the twist and shout

15 minutes you’ve been on my mind
And I can’t sleep a wink though I’m not sure I tried
And I’ll cross my fingers and I’ll close my eyes
Dream of a day when I make you mine
I’m gonna dream everyday that I’ll make you mine
Dream everyday I’m gonna make you mine
I’m gonna dream everyday when I make you mine

    General CommentThis song is often played as the last song in a set, with the band descending into the crowd.
    They promised that they would never record it for an album.
