Swallowed by the Cracks
I once was a dancer I was young once like you Though I know I don't look it Jumped high as the sky Had fire in my eyes And legs like a stallion And I had a girl and I loved her My best friend was her brother We were on top of the mountain that summer Thought we'd never be swallowed by the cracks Fallen so far down Like the rest of those clowns begging bus fare back Swallowed by the cracks Our pride worn down talking times gone by Like everybody else Swallowed by the cracks We would never be swallowed by the cracks We would talk through the night About what we would do If we just could get started I would choreograph Eileen she would act while Steve was a writer Then stevie ran away and get bored Eileen took a job in a store Me I became this drunken old whore 'Cause you see we'd be swallowed by the cracks Fallen so far down Like the rest of those clowns begging bus fare back Swallowed by the cracks our pride worn down Talking times gone by like everybody else Swallowed by the cracks Swallowed by the cracks You see we'd be swallowed by the cracks Maybe it ain't over I can see it's up to me You only out when you stay out you stay out when you don't Believe we could drive around in circles getting nowhere All night long getting drunk with strangers telling lies And singing along with the jukebox baby Swallowed by the cracks
