And just outside I can heard the sounds
of the early morning street becoming way too loud
and the hum of the engines of the cars on the street
And with this cigarette that I just lit
as I pass the 53rd St. Bridge
Right now the world just seems too big
so sit down and remind me how
this is the same old story of growing up and getting lost.
And outside I can see my breath
in between the words that fog my spinning head
and I can see the sun coming up. And it's just light enough to see
Another cigarette that I just lit
as I pass the 53rd St. bridge
right now the world just seems to big
And all the late night calls and all the lost hopes
and the missed connections and the lost direction.

    General Commenti can't believ only 3 ppl commented on this song! this is the first ltj song i ever heard. i can actually say that this song changed my life. I wouldn't have been the same person had i ltj not gotton me into the punk scene in my town, etc., and just listening to them... well, it made all the difference (robert frost poem: two roads diverged in the wood and i took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference. Less than jake was my difference). good lyrics, good song, tear for no horns, but hey, and the best song title ever. (esp good in charades)
