Neon lights outside my pool hall
Rain is coming down in spoonfulls
Mixes in with tears from my eyes
I've been standing here for hours

Paper bag for my umbrella
Won't you come back to your soggy fella
Watching people passing by me
I got nowhere else to go

And I know you could be miles from me
Just a sailing through these flooded streets
I wash the sin right off my skin
And you will have me back again

Diesel bus fumes got me choking
Police man standing above me poking
Wake up from my sidewalk hilton
I got nowhere else to go

Neon sport coat gets me groovin'
Your long gone daddy is slowly moving
A wrinkled picture in my wallet
I could stare at you for hours

And I know you could be miles from me
Just a sailing through these flooded streets
I wash the sin right off my skin
And you will have me back again

And I'll be floating up to heaven
With dice in my hands rolling sevens
Lost in your arms
And salvation will be ours
Neon lights outside my pool hall
Rain is coming down in spoonfulls
Mixes in with tears from my eyes
I've been standing here for hours
