lyrics

Neon Nights

She’s got her hands
Wrapped around her man
It’s a neon night in July
The band on the stage
They echo and sway in time

He twirls her ‘round
Wipes sweat from his brow
Her sundress rises and falls
Her glistening skin
And calcine lips they call

This love we found is hungry
And something’s gotta give
‘Cause this living like we’re doing
It ain’t no way to live

The world outside
Might be closing its eyes
But this smoky bar is awake
This boy and this girl
Have the whole damn world to take

It’s quarter to one
The band is done
But the jukebox howls and moans
She moves her hips
He tilts his head and groans

He wants time in his hand
Then he’d make a stand
But it’s pushing them towards the door
The music it fades
Like it never was played before

This love we found is hungry
And something’s gotta give
‘Cause this living like we’re doing
It ain’t no way to live

He takes her home
After they roam
The July night in the heat
She’s somebody’s wife,
But he kisses her twice
In the street
