Into the night on heels I stumble
Like a star about to shoot
Catch me down the avenue like
A dandy lion parachute

Release the hounds, chase my tail and
Treat me like a renegade
I'm as patient as a chain-reaction
But I am not afraid

We're gonna leave all the troubles behind by the turnpike
Going away, you know what it feels like
I'll never let you go, Joe Dallesandro
The rocks in my shoes won«t dig into my feet
Free of the promises that I can«t keep
I'll never let you go, Joe Dallesandro

No matter what you say
I can't shake off this fling

Into the night I paint the city
In the colors of my eyeshade
Walking with a papertiger
I am not afraid

We're gonna leave all the troubles behind by the turnpike
Going away, you know what it feels like
I'll never let you go, Joe Dallesandro
The rocks in my shoes won't dig into my feet
Free of the promises that I can't keep
I'll never let you go, Joe Dallesandro

No matter what you say
I can't shake off this fling
No matter what you do
I can't shake off this fling

The number of tears you cry equals the number of tears you dry
I'll never let you go, Joe Dallesandro
