One light blinking off and on
Blood of life in this town is gone
Lost all it's pieces but the pawn
Tomorrow stopped coming with the dawn

In my dreams, I've seen
Things that only seem to happen on the silver screen
When it's over there's no walking out
'cause I've been all they talk about
'cause what ain't goin' down
On main street

I went too early with a friend of mine
Just to see what it was all about
Hit the freeway and it blew my mind,
I had to find a way of gettin' out
She said, they say, hey you gotta live a little
In my mind, I'd find lost ain't living,
Even there in the middle of main street

Yeah....

Never did the things I though I would
Woulda left just didn't know I could
If things don't work like they should
It ain't for better but it's for good

'cause in my dreams I've seen
Things that only seem to happen on the silver screen
When it's over there's no walking out
'cause I've been all they talk about
'cause what ain't goin' down
In my dreams I've seen
Things that only seem to happen on the silver screen
When it's over there's no walking out
'cause I've been all they talk about
'cause what ain't goin' down
On main street
