She dialed him about 6:00 PM
She checked her hair in the mirror
And she stepped through
The door like this

Three flights down
And she's out on the streets
Walking brick sidewalks
Lined in gray concrete

He saw her coming
From a few blocks away
Red scarf in the wind
As it started to rain a bit

Shuffled down the boulevard
Cut me like a deck of cards
I thought you had me
You thought that you had me

But hey devil, go on
Get your junk out of here
I don't need you
I don't need you

Hey devil, go on
Get your junk out of here
I don't need you
So move on

I stepped to it like
I knew what I was doing
I'm a moth, you're the flame
Never knew you'd be my ruin

In the blink of an eye
Element of surprise
Got my feet on the earth
But my fist to the sky

Shuffled down the boulevard
Cut me like a deck of cards
I thought you had me
You thought you had me

Now the plot is thickening
Pushing deep under my skin
I thought you had me
You thought that you had me

You're a beauty and a beast
You're the pressure never cease
You're the straight other side
And they say you never sleep


She dialed him about 6:00 PM
She checked her hair in the mirror
And she stepped through

    Duh, He's talking about a guy who was caught off-guard by a prostitute coming down the road towards him. The guy sees an opportunity but knows it is wrong. He struggles with desire for a second but then stands firm.
