I knew a girl in Meteor City
We used to drive down old Crater Road
And I would hold her hand
And she would look pretty
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't knoW

I'd spend my days in this run down cafe
Working for a room at the top of the stairs
And she would work the counter
Man, just to be around her
Was the only thing that kept me there
Couldn't wait for the cool night air
Couldn't wait for the cool night air

I knew a girl in Meteor City
We used to drive down old Crater Road
And I would hold her hand
And she would look pretty
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know

And I said "Oh, Sofia, where'd you get a name like that
Living in this dirt road town?"
She says, "I think she was a movie star
My father saw before I was born
But I really don't remember now
He left when I was so young...
When I was so young..."

I knew a girl in Meteor City
We used to drive down old Crater Road
And I would hold her hand
And she would look pretty
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know

At night the stars they all jump through the sky
With the dreams that I miss so much
And I hit the emptiness and the pain inside
With a whiskey and a woman's touch
Yeah, it's as good as love
Yeah, it's as good as love

I knew a girl in Meteor City
We used to drive down on Crater Road
And I would hold her hand
And she would look pretty
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
