lyrics

Come on in to the Dark

Lonely lighthouse keeper,
Stuck on Ocean Parkway,
The traffic moves this slow,
Gets me thinking of the waves.
Searching through the static,
For the ghost of that old tune,
And the girl I loved the most,
I lost on Mermaid Avenue.

Come on in to the dark,
You don’t have to hide your broken parts.

She’s moving like a red sky,
Across the sailor’s morning,
She’s trouble, well we know it,
Yeah, that is why we’re drawn in.
I’ve been there with my own two feet,
Seen it with my own two eyes,
Where Atlantic and Pacific meet,
Beneath the Brooklyn Sky.

Come on to the dark,
You don’t have to hide your broken parts.
Come on in, it’s safe and sound
In this company of strangers we have found.

Whale Heart, Whale Heart,
Where did you get your name?
Keep on talking, keep on talking,
I need the escape.

He’s an actor from Boise,
Bartending fulltime,
He says, “Welcome to New York City,
Where dreams come die”
The girl from Gelsenkirchen,
Still has magic in her eyes,
The beauty of uncrushed ambition,
And time on her side.

Come on to the dark,
You don’t have to hide your broken parts.
Come on in, it’s safe and sound
In this company of strangers we have found.
