Lyrics
NEON and the NIGHT

Maggie just cleared the Back Door as
Her Old Heat came through the Side.
Turned East down Fourth Street
Lookin' for a Place to Hide
Hadn't seen Him Recently, but
Too Recently for That
Put Up her Collar
Pulled Down her Hat
And the Wind did Blow.

Don't let it go Bitter
Just takes Time You Know
That's What They're All saying
But Time's Sure passing Slow

Made it to the Highway by the River
Traffic Comes and Goes
Watch the Tug Boats pull
The Barges Oh so Slow
Moonlight melts on the Waves of the Wake
She spreads her Hands
Across Her Face
And a Tear does Flow

Don't Know Why, Maggie
Everybody Takes a Side
They think it's Invisible, but it's
Really Just Like Ice
Don't Look you in the Eye
Think that It doesn't
Show

Numb, You Don't Feel It
Senses stripped to the Bone
Their Eyes don't See it
Part of you is Missing
That's All You Know

Ran into Jimmy the Newsman and
Joe The Taxi Cab
Over on McDougal
Havin' Coffee and a Laugh
They waved when They saw Her
Hoping for a Smile
She Tried her Best
Missin' by a Mile
They saw This would Not Hold

She Turned Away
And Waved Goodbye,
Into the Neon
And the Night

Can't Say Why, Maggie
It's So Hard to Know
Tell Yourself
Let Go of What You cannot Hold
The Heart's a Hunter
And always the Last to Know that
You're Free To Go

Numb, You don't Feel It
Senses stripped to the Bone
Your Eyes don't See It
Part of You is Missing
That's All You Know

Fav'd for the Talent and Poise of the Southern Gentleman.

Bass as a Full-On Melody Voice and Still discrete.

The Cool of it.

If it gets any better than this
then I ain't heard it yet. Great tune. Excellent collab. The vocals remind me a little of Tom Rapp from Pearls Befor Swine.
Check out my latest song called Interdependence
