lyrics

I got Holly’s arms around me
Holding me like a little dog
And the small rain at her windows whispers all night long
To some kind of love she just can’t face

She trades a shower for ripe red lipstick
Her last cigarette for a beer
And the birds all wake outside her door
With the TV on so loud

It’s a long long long long long way down Domino Road
It’s a low low low low low rent way to go
Greasy eyes and a holy moon
Breathing up her skirt
I don’t wish her eyes were blue, and
She just loves to lose it

Lady Day, she smiles on me
From the backyard on Jefferson Avenue
Is it her sweat on my stomach
That makes her feel like she has to?
If she’s got something for me
Tell her that it’s already here
And it ain’t desire, and it ain’t tragedy
That’ll take away her years

It’s a long long long long long way down Domino Road
It’s a low low low low low rent way to go
Greasy eyes and a holy moon
Breathing up her skirt
I don’t wish her eyes were blue, and
She just loves to lose it

If she falls asleep in sunshine
Buy her a wicked hat
That’ll dance upon her pretty head
In the shadows drunk with regret

It’s a long long long long long way down Domino Road
It’s a low low low low low rent way to go
Greasy eyes and a holy moon
Breathing up her skirt
I don’t wish her eyes were blue, and
She just loves to lose it
