In the lonely night 
In the blinking stardust of a pale blue light 
You're comin' through to me in black and white 
When we were made of dreams. 
You're blowing down the shaky street  
You're hearing my heart beat 
In the record breaking heat 
 Where we were born in time. 
Not one more night not one more kiss  
Not this time baby no more of this  
 Takes too much skill takes too much will  
It's revealing. 
You came  you saw, just like the law 
You married young, just like your ma, 
You tried and tried, you made me slide 
You left me reelin' with this feelin'. 
On the rising curve 
 Where the ways of nature will test every nerve, 
You won't get anything you don't deserve 
 Where we were born in time. 
You pressed me once, you pressed me twice, 
You hang the flame, you'll pay the price, 
Oh babe, that fire 
Is still smokin'. 
You were snow, you were rain 
You were striped, you were plain, 
Oh babe, truer words 
Have not been spoken or broken. 
In the hills of mystery, 
In the foggy web of destiny, 
You can have what's left of me, 
 Where we were born in time.
