Cookie cried for three days, until she couldn?t cry no more 
she ate the fridge, jumped the bridge and wound up bloated on the shore 
The children they all pointed at another painted score 
and somebody asked: ?can I take a picture?? 

Well the heat down here is brutal, it?s hard to do what?s right 
the locals shout that you won?t burn out if you don?t ever shine too bright 
and I wish I was in your back pocket or in your bed tonight 
I wish that i was loud so you could hear me 

but oh, no 
what else must I be? 
it?s all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me 
that I need you, honey I need you 
there ain?t nobody who could supersede you 
we?re not such strangers, so honey I need you right now 

Now all the streets are paved with petals, the parade is coming through 
it kind of feels like royalty cause? everyone?s in blue 
and yellow flowers falling, from a window too 
falling to the feet of such a coward 

The mayor is kissing babies, he?s almost way too kind 
we?re filled to the brim with honest men, they?re just way too hard to find 
so stare into his Public Eyes and watch his clock unwind 
then find him old and drowning in the deep end 

but oh, now 
what else must I see? 
It?s all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me 
that I need you, honey I need you 
there ain?t nobody who could supersede you 
we?re not such strangers so honey i need you right now 

You see, I long for a hickory morning with a waltz and trumpet flare 
i?m doing my best to recover from what time cannot repair 
and i?m sick of all this solitude and pre-rehearsed despair 
my eyes are a hundred miles away from sleeping 

Well I wish you?d write a letter, or telephone to me 
this place is dark and there ain?t a spark of who I used to be 
so the sick hearts of the unloved tell the brave souls of the sea: 
?we?re all closed up, why don?t you come back when we?re open.? 

but oh, no 
what else must I be? 
it?s all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me 
that I need you, honey I need you 
there ain?t nobody who could supersede you 
we?re not such strangers so honey I need you right now 

There?s a cracked and pale mirror, hanging on my wall 
the church bell rings and the choir sings and I can hear it from the hall 
Now you might not believe it, but there was no fire at all 
we just danced for seven days wishing for water 

Maria tells the fortunes, they line around the bend 
a dollar for your problems, and five to know the end 
They come from miles around; like a pack of howling men 
I wonder what she does with all that money 

but oh, now 
what else must i be? 
it?s all inside my head i guess, but it just reminds me 
that I need you, honey I need you 
there ain?t nobody who could supersede you 
we?re not such strangers, so honey I need you right now 

Simple sidewalk painter, says his life is such a bore 
spends his time with a jug of wine and a palette on the floor 
he screams: ?Heaven! Take my eyes, cause I can?t paint no more.? 
Honey, sometimes I feel just like his colors 

I?m gonna go down to the ocean, I want to fill my boots with sand 
so the next time that you see me, I?ll be a much more grounded man 
So go and do whatever it is you do and I?ll do what I can 
and when we meet again you can try to know me 

oh hey, 
what else must I be? 
it?s all inside my head I guess but it just reminds me 
that I need you, honey I need you 
there ain?t nobody who could supersede you 
we?re not such strangers so honey I need you right now 

they call me pessimistic, but it occured to me 
that babies are all born crying and dying is never free 
But I still can?t shake that feeling, that Somebody?s watching me.... 
I just thought that I would tell you
