I went off in the cruel word like a gun in a crowded room
I went off in the cruel word like a gun in a crowded room
It was through all these crude soldiers I learned to howl at the moon

I spread my seed like a farm boy, I shined my light like a lamp
I spread my seed like a farm boy, I shined my light like a lamp
I didn't know where I was going, no one was calling me champ

They didn't get what I was meaning, 'til I stopped meaning too much
They didn't get what I was meaning, 'til I stopped meaning too much
They didn't know that I was dreaming, 'til I was cold to the touch

You know I slept through the whole night, when I slept next to her
I said I slept through the whole night, when I slept next to her
I would have stayed there forever, 'cause no one knew who we were

I folded into her shoulder, I dreamed of missing a train
I folded into her shoulder, I dreamed of missing a train
Then all my thoughtless behavior brought me this way again
Soon all my thoughtless behavior brought me this way again

    General CommentI just love this song. My favorite verse is

    "You know I slept through the whole night, when I slept next to her
    I said I slept through the whole night, when I slept next to her
    I would have stayed there forever, 'cause no one knew who we were"

    My wife is from a very wealthy family and a 'big' name in the city where we went to college. She wanted to get out of there so bad. After we graduated and left, I was playing this song, she cried, and said that was exactly how she felt.
