Lyrics

Meet me in the dark
I'll treat you and your friends to Houston Street
I will not apologize
We're gonna close his greedy eyes
I've lost my light
I've lost my soul
So follow me cross Houston Street
We're running late for our last meet

That's how my life ends
They call it fate
I'll say revenge
I was just too late
I prayed each night I stayed awake
With just one last shot
I'm ten again
I'm asking questions
And I dont understand
This heat I feel just left my hands

Meet me in the dark my love
Let's catch a train to Houston Street
Bring your James I'll borrow Poe
You read to me I read too slow
Your voice is like syrup
I'm sweet on you
I will stay true
So follow me cross Houston Street
We'll buy some jazz and get some sleep

Just try to breath
Fell to my knees
I'm begging please
Get up my love
I'm scared again
In misery
I'll follow you
In just a week or maybe two
Your mother said don't call again
I can't pretend

Oh I want her back, I want it back (Yesterday is gone)
Oh I want her back, Oh I want it back (You're holding on too strong)

We left footprints in the snow
As we walked
She said
'Oh, when it rains.'
But the sun
Shines down on the city
It's quite alright if you smile
It just means forgiveness
'Oh, when it rains.'
But the sun
Shines down on the city
It's quite alright if you smile
It just means forgiveness

Yesterday is gone
Oh, I want her back, I want her back
You're holding on too strong


We left footprints in the snow
But when I went to look for them
They both were gone
Just wet sidewalk
and shit and salt and rubberbands

So follow me cross Houston Street
We're running late for our last meet

Your voice is like syrup
I'm sweet on you
I miss you too
So follow me
Cross Houston Street
We're running late

Reminds me of late 60's/early 70's. reminds me of golden curtains and the smell of a volkswagon back seat on the way to san fran.
