Lovers Lane

She used to be a dancer,
He used to be the man
But now they seem to settle
For anything they can
And their children all have scattered
Far across the fruited plain
Left behind a silence
That they just can't put away...

So she gave herself to Jesus
And that lasted 'bout a year
While he thought about that waitress
And cracked another beer...
And all that quiet resignation
Seemed like all they had to share
They keep moving' round each other
Like they ain't even there...

What about that moonlight
What about that kiss
How did all those velvet nights
End up here like this
And though the world keeps beatin' on 'em
Ya know they might go through it all again
All for one more night
Back on Lovers Lane...

He tried to be a good provider
He was a diehard union man
But then the union told the rank and file
Boys, we've done all that we can
And so she watched him slowly vanish
Just like a shadow going down
You break the spirit of a working man
Might as well, might as well put him in the ground...

What about that moonlight, tell me
What about that kiss
How did all those velvet nights
End up here like this
And though the world keeps beatin' on 'em
Ya know they might go through it all again
All for one more night
Back on Lovers Lane...

And when you take too much for granted
Pretty soon you find it gone
Like where did all the years go
And what the hell went on
And there's a hole deep in the country
And we're all listed day to day
Used to fill that hole with dreams now
Seems it all just slipped away...

What about that moonlight, tell me
What about that kiss
How did all those velvet nights
End up here like this
And though the world keeps beatin' on 'em
Ya know they might go through it all again
All for one more night
Back on Lovers Lane...
