Craig Finn – Balcony lyrics
There was a party at that high-rise up on Harmon
It was dead except a couple people dancing
While our eyes were still adjusting to the dark her appetite was expanding
The dude with the long fingernails I don't think that I trust him all that much
It cost ten dollars just to get inside the building
It costs more to get in touch

I went to the SA to get some cigs
I asked the doorman to remember me
I looked up to see the moon and I saw you and him out on the balcony
It was the same thing that you did to me

Don't want to be your old man
I want to be your new man another time all over
I miss the way your eyes they used to spark when you'd look over your shoulder
The dude with the long fingernails I think he's gonna take such good care of you
I've seen him shave up at the library
I've seen him sleep behind the Caribou

I took the bus back uptown because I knew that it was over
I didn't need to know the rest of it
I know the look. I know the lines
I know the laugh from back when we first started it
Such a drunk romantic genesis
Now we've really made a mess of this

I'll put your stuff out on the driveway
You can get it when you walk back through the white light
I'll leave a sandwich in your suitcase in case you're hungry when you come back from the high-rise
I hope your dude don't break his nails when he tries to help you carry all your stuff
It costs ten dollars for a taxi. It costs a whole lot more to fall in love

I went to the SA to get some cigs
I asked the bagman to remember me
I looked up to see the moon and I saw you and him out on the balcony
It was the same thing that you did with me
