The Hold Steady – First Night lyrics

Charlemagne shakes in the streets
Gideon makes love to the suites
And Holly's not invincible
In fact she's in the hospital
Not far from that bar where we met
On that first night

Charlemagne pulls street corner scams
And Gideon's got a popcap from a Pringles can
Holly's insatiable, she still looks incredible
But she don't look like that same girl we met
On that first night
When she was golden with floorlight and beer
On that first night
She slept like she'd never been scared

And then last night
She said "Words so long never could save us."
And then last night
She cried and she told us about Jesus

Holly's inconsolable
Unhinged and uncontrollable
'Cause we can't get as high as we got

On that first night

Boys and girls in America
Boys and girls in America
Boys and girls in America
Boys and girls in America
Boys and girls in America

Don't bother talking to the guys
With their hot soft eyes
You know they're already taken
Don't even speak to all those sequin-surfed beach boys
When they kiss they spit white noise
When they kiss they spit white noise
When they kiss they spit white noise
When they kiss they spit white noise
Yeah, when they kiss they spit white noise
Now when they kiss they spit white noise
When they kiss they spit white noise
