soda shop lyrics – jay brannan

the sidewalk is rushing at my head again
i’m lying on the street in the rain and wind
from doing forward rolls down avenue a
with my guitar on my back, don’t let it end this way

somehow i dialed my cell
i didn’t know i could get service in h*ll
how quickly can you get here, don’t know where i am dear
finally the world actually seems to be revolving around me

i overdid it at the soda shop
thanks for being my girl at the
i-don’t-know-when-to-stop sock hop

you held my head over the edge of the bed
i remember it now, but at the time i thought i was dead
you put a pan there, and held back my hair
how can i repay you for saving me and my hardwood floor?


and when the world stopped spinning ’round
i picked the pan up off the ground
i read my upheaves, much like tea leaves
they said it’s over, so get sober, or you’ll die again
