The balloon-clown in the alley made her laugh until she cried
A vision in her green eyes opened wide
The talking passed the winter and the passion never lied
The questions and the answers showed his sullen sulking pride..... Down inside.

Now languished lonely lovers lie while waiting for the dawn
And hide beneath the covers of desires that went so wrong
She dreams about the old ones and she dreams about the new
But he's just a sad reflection of a man without a clue.....Boo hoo

[Bridge one]
She lets her red hair fall along the shadows on her bed
She thinks about a friend she new with wounds that never bled
Could I have been so wrong she thinks as summer turns to fall
Could I have been so wrong he thinks and staggers down the hall.....What a fall

He's staring at the river while she talks about her life
She sometimes needs a lover but she always is his wife
She wants to be a WRITER though she will not join the game
He wants to be a PROPHET but the prophet has no name

[Bridge two]
She lets her red hair fall along the lines upon his face
He wishes he could keep her in a secret hiding place
They hold each other tightly and her red eyes start to cry
It's sad but after all just one more parking lot goodbye.....Oh my my

[hide me, hide me, hide me]
