lyrics

Neon signs and billboards
Reflecting in the wet sidewalks
I read 'em all
The night I went to count the bars
And August left a message on my phone
"So long. I'm gone"

I've washed the floor and locked the door
At the diner I was working for
Free meals and out of loneliness
So I went down the familliar road
With money just enough to drink 'til dawn
I thought, I hoped

And the moon was on the rise
And the traffic lights turned yellow
As if they jealous of the light
And the night was sweet and calm

Met the boys at Freud's. We
Took a couple shots and I went outside
To get some air
The girl stood there, hands crossed, upset
She asked me if I had a cigarette
I felt the scent

Of cinnamon and chamomile
And I could walk a thousand miles
To prove I'm worthy of her smile
But we smoked in silence, unaware
The summer's ended - and she disappeared
"My cab. Take care"

And the moon was on the rise
And the traffic lights were yellow
As if they jealous of the light
And the night was sweet and calm

That night the moon was burning bright
And the traffic lights were yellow
As if they jealous of the light
Oh, that night was lonesome, sweet and calm
