Every day, people sway
softly lulling me to sleep
I look the other way
but I still can't look too deep
I think I'll fall asleep
I think I'll fall asleep

So call up and tell him that you will survive
good looking kid with the velvet eyes
you and me and everything's gonna be fine

Every night, people fight
gently lulling me to sleep
what gives me the right
to waste away and weep
I think I'll turn away
there's nothing left to say

So call up and tell him that you will survive
good looking kid with the velvet eyes
you and me and everything's gonna be fine
so you wanna have everything your heart desires
there's a fist full of people with their hearts on fire
make your way on up to the front of the line

Get out of my way
I'm here now to stay
Get out of my way
I'm here now to stay

So call up and tell him that you will survive
good looking kid with the velvet eyes
you and me and everything's gonna be fine
so you wanna have everything your heart desires
there's a fist full of people with their hearts on fire
make your way on up to the front of the line
