Howl At The Moon

4 Jan

they sat at the bar and he told her he was afraid of her

she asked him just what more did he have to lose

they found a way home though the lights on the Chevy went out a long time ago

she told him life is simply any path you choose

another day spent searching for a penny

a couple of bucks to borrow, borrow for last call

looking through the windshield out at the stars, so many

and howl at the moon, please howl at the moon just one more time

before you fall asleep

driving down roads familiar but never seen before

stop at the old gas station for a last beer

believing in god is easy when you make it so safely home

and tumble into bed wondering how did we get here

the angels will always see to it we’ve done enough playing

following us to make sure the car don’t stall

listening to them its funny to hear what their saying

howl at the moon please, howl at the moon just one more time

before you fall asleep

there’s a sun that’s rising in your dreams while you’re sleeping

it’ll follow you all day relentlessly

the neighborhood dive is happy to see you whittle away the night

you may have a laugh but there’s no guarantee

some other time were gonna make it out of here early

but one last dance for the ghost of old St. Paul

scuffing up the dance floor, got to be twisting, twirly

so howl at the moon, please howl at the moon just one more time

before you fall asleep
