St. Vincent – Down And Out Downtown Lyrics

Down And Out Downtown Lyrics – St. Vincent

Last night’s heels
On the mornin’ train
It’s a long way back downtown

Ten missed calls, they don’t
Know where you are
It’s a long way back downtown

Hey, I was flying (Flying, flying, flying)
Over the Empire State (Over, away)
Then you kissed me (Kissed me, kissed me)
And I crashed again

When did it start?
This feeling so wrong
When you’re down and out downtown

(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
Bowery John
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)
Forgotten but not gone

(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Praying at St. Ann’s
Bodega roses in my hands
(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)

Down and out downtown
And the
Joker with that funny laugh
Is digging through the basement of my past
It’s a long way back down
Down and out downtown

Hey, I was flying (Flying, flying, flying)
Over the Empire State (Over, away)
When you kissed me (Kissed me, kissed me, kissed me)
And I crashed again
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
