Years, days, makes no difference to me babe
You look exactly the same to me
Ain't no time crossing your legs inside your diner
Raising the coffee to your lips, are stained

You saw the masterpiece
She looks a lot like you
Wrapping your left arm around your right
Ready to walk you through the night

You whisper to a restless ear
"Can you get me out of here?
This place smells like piss and beer
Can you get me out?"
You were asking me
How to get you free
I only know the recipe to roam

You saw the masterpiece
She looks a lot like you
Wrapping your left arm around your right
Ready to walk you through the night

Old stars, filling up my throat
You gave 'em to me when I was born
Now they're coming out
Laying there on the hospital bed
As an arrow, blue and red
Took a draw of breath and said to me

"You saw the masterpiece
She looks a lot like me
Wrapping my left arm around your right
Ready to walk you through the night"

Old friends, old mothers
Dogs, and brothers
There's only so much letting go
You can ask someone to do
So I keep you by my side
I will not give you to the tide
I'll even walk you in my stride, Marie

Cause I saw the masterpiece
She looks a lot like you
Wrapping your left arm around my right
Ready to walk me through the night
