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
