I knew it first thing I met you
There's something special in us
Our lives will be different
We will stay young forever

We'll know when we get there
And we looked for entrance doors
But somehow we never
And there was no

And when the streets wake up at nights, we'll go there
Singing "Hey, Ho"
Hey ho, to the plans that slip away before we have them
Catching soup with forks without lamplight

And everyone else seemed to end up places
While we just sang "Hey, ho"
Hey ho, to the sailors that never passes by
To take us along to Brazilian sea ports

But there is something about him
Like he has never seen the world
Something so pure and decent
I have to destroy it

Or tap it on bottles
And drink it all night
And put a ring on it
To keep it forever

And in a suddent flash of light I'll stand there
Singing "Hey, ho"
Hey ho, to the hope I carry with me in my hands
Fragile as newly-born birds or as egg shell

I have something, I know I do
I just need someone else to see it too
To pinpoint it and let me know
What to do

You, my friend, you are no help
You have just as little clue as I ever had
We ask each other for directions
It's as entertaining as it is sad

No, I didn't ask much of him
Only that he'd be all I need
That he'd fill the void in me
Make me stay young forever

And now we roam the streets like tourists
There is panic in our eyes
We pick up every paving stone
Look underneath them for anything

Your head is nowhere safe tonight
I have no idea what to say tonight
We'll take off our boots and run out
Curse and scream at the moon tonight

In a dream I'm on my death bed
Being asked what it's all about
And in my dream I know it:
Roaming the streets with your best friends
Singing "Hey, ho"

But when I woke up
I forgot it
