lyrics

In bleak and idle arms we dream
Pitchin' Q's out back around the ice machine
Holdin' on to everything that slows us down
But that's the way it goes in this sleepwalking town oh yeah
It's gonna be alright tonight - and I said
Lily when I look upon you
I don't see a stranger no
I don't see the gloom a day has brought
Just a little fortune left untold

And now I can't help but think about it
Woman if you told me yes
We gonna tear this whole town up in one holy night
Yeah we'll make 'em all confess
And Lily I'll do my best
I'll do my very best

Some sleek pretender from the alley way
Cut your heart right out and put it on display
Conquered in the back room where the organ grinds
You look for restitution but you know you'll never find it here
Oh baby ain't it clear to you? -and I said

Lily I been drifting so long
That I don't see the danger no
I just want a chance at love so fine
To lift you up and call you mine

And now I can't help but think about it
Woman if you told me yes
We gonna tear this whole town up in one holy night
Yeah we'll make 'em all confess
And Lily I'll do my best
I'll do my very best

And Lily you are a force of nature scarred well beyond your years
Don't you stand alone and wait in vein for the pain to disappear

And through it all we get nowhere
Steppin' out like death into the autumn air
Lonely as the patrons down on Shepard's Row
You know them boys they never could let go it's true
But Lily I got you tonight -and I said

You know I've gone and made up my mind
Cause I ain't lookin' for redemption no
I've just seen enough to know this time
That you're the answer you're the one

And now I can't help but think about it
Woman if you told me yes
We gonna tear this whole town up in one holy night
Yeah we'll make 'em all confess
And Lily I'll do my best
I'll do my very best
