lyrics

Another party in an apartment on the other side of town
at times like these I wonder why I follow you around
I’ll have to watch you in your role as a temptress and as a fool
You got the touch it takes to make those wild-eyed dreamers drool

These eager girls and grinning boys that you say are your friends
Trying so hard to convince themselves they’re women and they’re men
Attempting to impress with desperate lies
They don’t even believe themselves, you can see it in their eyes

And at times like these I wanna
ride out to the city’s ragged edge
All I wanna do is ride
Like the brave and empty vagabonds
with nothing left to show and nothing left to hide

You talk about the trips you’ll take someday to Paris and Rome
and I sit and watch the game, and I wait to drive you home
Once again it’s plain to see you’re the star tonight
you spent two hours at the mirror so you could look just right

And at times like these I wanna
ride out to the city’s ragged edge
All I wanna do is ride
Like the brave and empty vagabonds
with nothing left to show and nothing left to hide

The prairie stretches wide, it invites me
To lose myself in its open spaces
Stop runnin’ these human races we run
You and me babe, our race is run, all done

And at times like these I wanna
ride out to the city’s ragged edge
All I wanna do is ride
Like the brave and empty vagabonds
with nothing left to show and nothing left to hide
