ELLIOTT MURPHY


On Romeo Street Lyrics

I.
She was trapped in my peripheral vision like a long
lost silhouette
She was fine and dirty and curly and loose
And from that sacred moment when the ends of our
fingers met
I felt a shiver go down into the heels of my cowboy
boots
See I was cornered like a rat in a prewar drugstore
raid
And I was ranting and raving and reciting the raunchy
blues
Yeah she knew a thing or two so I didn't have much to
say
She said I'm here my dear to deliver the good news

II.
You see I felt my life was already over but my moment
had just begun
So I saw my chance and I grabbed it as best as I could
So I lay down in her sweet smelling soulfully seductive
quicksand
Though the ghost of romance stood behind me and might
have given me a push
We had no friends in common except mister and misses
happenstance
And I was talking more and more about movies and books
Then I ran out of words and I asked her well can I have
this dance
And she thought that was funny and gave me a very, very
special look

III.
Well the parade was passing and I was marching right
behind the majorette
She was throwing her baton much higher than the oldest
oak tree
There was such symbolism I thought Christ had risen and
I just had to forget
And start over again from the day I stood at my daddy's
knew
When he said son there's a few things here that I gotta
tell you
And he bent down low to whisper in my childish ear
When just then a squadron of jet fighters passed right
over my head
And he sai promise me boy you'll always keep that
thought dear

IV.
Well I guess I forgot more now than I'll ever remember
About why you plant roses when a rainbow is just at its
end
About why you shouldn't make any new plans till say
mid-December
Keep the new year new as long as you can
Here's to the crazies who make a dreary day worth
living
See them laughing at phonies and frauds who believe so
much in themselves
Because among them I believe is where the magic it
keeps itself well hidden
From those politicos who would steal the ring out of a
church bell

V.
So I went back to her every night till I was totally
addicted
And she knew it too and believe me that was the very
best part
Sure the newness gets old but she sure knew how to fix
it
And soon I was sporting a good as new broken in head
Well we've fought about friends and we've argued about
the weather
And whether or not we turn left or right when we go out
at night
I've misused every sacred word that I could remember
Except for love cause that just wouldn't be right

VI.
On Romeo street they're selling bedroom sets and
mirrors
And couches covered in the most luxurious velour
And one day I lay down in the softness but I saw where
the fear lives
So I turned around and marched back onto the kiling
floor
Yeah Romeo street is twisting its way out into the
suburbs
But tonight the trade is all running the other way
Its a madness my dear that keeps us out here in the
moonlight
Its a madness I hope that never ever goes away
