Rickie Lee Jones – Firewalker lyrics

Julie got some ectasy
She laid down on the steering wheel
Love comes to the first thing love sees
Love comes to the first thing that makes it real
Makes it real
Everybody's been hit
Everybody's been hurt
Everybody's been kicked
Everybody's been dirt
Everybody had to drive all night to reach L.A.
In the morning light
1-Try to lighten up I always bear down
I Want to back you up, but you just back down
Julie found some brown girlfriend
Got it for a coin
Landlord threw her clothes out
On the street in the tenderloin
Everybody's been a dog
Everybody's had to beg
Everybody's been a moth, been a moth
When she woke up on her knees
Everybody made her say please
I was in a wild place where I go
I couldn't hear you
Julie found God in the bus station
And she liked him a lot
Well, you put your money in the basket that comes
You remember the first guy that you bought
Everybody starts out innocent, starts out ridiculous
Starts out beautiful, starts out beautiful
Nobody wants to be alone
Out here I'm all on my own
(repeat 1)
Julie found her sailor boy
Sailed off to the deep blue sea
So firewalker can walk on me
You can walk on me...
