lyrics

BAYSTREET FIRE ESCAPES
© Glenn Nuotio

Blue lights circle round
keep boys down low
scale Bay Street fire escapes
keep our business away from the pros

your girl waits somewhere
anyhow
and we won’t be clear until I hit the coast
you know
you know

If you know
your wish might turn up in some wedding guest
with no gift or a red-faced ride home
replacing old faces you never let rest
your cold ankles hold up your bunched up Sunday best
oh I swear
keep your head down
you can see the whole town from here

We’ve got time to run
Before the blame falls
flat on those who started this off
shoulders shrugged
keep it under you hat

stories in our bed
headlines in our wake
we know these by heart
but we’ll never know
just what it takes to make you go

so your wishes turn up in some wedding guest
with no gift or a wasted ride home
replacing old faces you never let rest
your cold ankles hold up
your bunched up Sunday Best
oh I swear
keep your head down

oh I swear keep your head down
you can see the whole town from here
