Island Avenue Lyrics

"Island Avenue"

Tonight I walk these city streets alone
Kicking empty beer cans in a monotone
And whatever madness the sidewalk show presents
But I've got no time I've got no desire for painted girls for rent
Or uptown chicks in Daddy's cars, ragtops down shooting for the stars
It's me and it's them and the night's been ripped in two

I couldn't sleep it's too late for me to call
If I stayed home I'd punch more holes in my apartment wall
I drove downtown and tried to come alive
Instead I'm drinking this morning's coffee in this all night dive
And I'll be here for a little while
Think of all the numbers that I could dial tonight
And God knows I've got more than a few

(Chorus)
But I don't want nobody, don't need nobody, I want you
I don't want nobody, don't need nobody, I want you
I don't want nobody, don't need nobody, I want you

You know its not long until I'm gonna leave this circus far behind
And drive the night straight through, to Island Avenue
You know I love to walk these city streets alone
I thought all I wanted was to be out here on my own
But yes I'm fascinated by your ways
And yes I must admit that you have set me all ablaze
Crazy promises that no man could keep
As I slam the door of my battered heap
As I hear the engine start I take my cue

Cause I don't want nobody, don't need nobody, I want you
I don't want nobody, don't need nobody, I want you
I don't want nobody, don't need nobody, I want you

You know its not long I'm gonna leave this circus far behind
And drive the night straight through to Island Avenue
(Repeat Chorus)
