Oh billy stares at cherry in the hallAnd walks out into the rain so blessed and tallStandin’ on the corner with a gun underneath his coatBeneath the stars on the streetOh on lexington avenue they standVelvet aces they case the promised landReachin’ out across the hoods with both handsOh, tryin’ to catch a rideTonight we’re lovers in the coldRunning past the graveyards in the snowWalking in the street with nowhere to goAnd it’s no, no, noOh and the getaway driver waits outside the storeHe pulls away just as billy runs out the doorOh and billy won’t run anymore, no, no, noOh baby I can’t lay the stars at your feetOh but I think we could take it all, just you and meOh come on, you’ll see, there’s a lot of roomFor you baby, in this front seatTonight we’re lovers on that road (in the snow)Running past the graveyards in the snowWalking in the street with nowhere to goAnd it’s oh, oh, oh
