    Lyrics

    Slow dancing on the boulevard
    In the quiet moments, while the city's still dark
    Sleepwalking through the summer rain
    In the tired spaces you could hear her name
    When she was warm and tender and you held her arms around you
    There was nothing but her love and affection, she was crazy for you
    Now she's part of something that you lost

    (chorus)
    And for all you know
    This could be
    The difference between what you need
    And what you wanna be
    Yeah, what you wanna be

    Night swimming in her diamond dress
    Making small circles move across the surface
    Stand watching from the steady shore, feeling wide open and waiting for
    Something warm and tender, now she's moving further from you
    There was nothing that could make it easy on you
    Every step you take reminds you that she's walking on

    Yeah, for all you know
    This could be
    The difference between what you need
    And what you want...

    Every word you never said
    Echoes down your empty hallway
    And everything that was your world
    Just came down

    Day breaking on the boulevard
    Feel the sun warming up your second-hand heart
    Light swimming right across your face
    And you think, maybe someday, yeah
    Maybe someday

    For all you know
    Yeah, this could be
    The difference between what you need
    And what you want...

    Yeah, for all you know
    For all you know
    Yeah, for all that you know
    This is what you wanna be
    Girl, what you wanna be

    *long pause*

    HEY

    I've found out on a late night drive
    In my winter coat and my blood-shot eyes
    on my bay think been
    no friend in me
    and the way i sin is hanging over me

    and i'm sorry you can't take me anywhere
    pretty soon we're almost there
    baby one more night
    it's been a long long drive
    and i'm way way tired
    i don't need no back-up plan

    i said i don't want no boddddy
    no body don't want me
    hell i'm so sad so lonnnely
    and i'm always landin' on my feet

    one more time with a sad sad smile
    and your white breath fresh in the circus life
    oh the one way rides
    and the sweet beginners passing on the left-hand side
    with a sideways smile

    and i'm always one step from start-up
    bad trips can make us start
    well dance all night
    well ass on fire
    and your hands up high
    and feel me one more time

    i said i don't want no bodddy
    no body don't want me
    hell i'm so sad so lonnnely
    that i'm always landin' on my feet

    well i learned to love myself
    and i don't need no one else
    when love moves on cause it gets cold
    well the love moves in and it can fill the hole
    well i'm one more hopeful lyin'
    on the bedroom florr no sense tryin'
    when the whole thing drops you lose your nerve
    i hope you get what you deserve

    i said i don't want no bodddy
    no body don't want me
    hell i'm so sad so lonnnely
    and i'm always landin' on my feet

    hell i don't want no bodddy
    no body don't want me
    hell i'm so sad so lonnnely
    that i'm always landin' on my feet

    hey
    hey
    hey
    HEY
