lyrics

I'm missing my tv / How does it not talk to me
And missing my dinner / And its empty calories
Standing beneath these stars / Too cold to set me free
As the cold wind gnaws / The houses along an empty street
Got a pocket full of nothing / And a backpack heavy with my need

Then come sailing, o yeah sailing / That bus come sailing
That bus come sailing / Sailing into view
For standing room only and a token / I'm on my way to you
For standing room only and a token / I'm on my way to you

A Straphanger jolted / To try at life anew
Jolted I am jolted / To try a life with you
A Straphanger jolted / To try at life anew
Jolted I am jolted / To try a life
Try a life with you

Stumbled into this desert scene / Got no city, got no trees
And off in the distance / I can hear that cop car scream
Hunting down some criminal / Gone worse than I dare dream
With pockets full of nothing / And a backpack heavy with his need
Got pockets full of nothing / And a backpack heavy with my need

Then come sailing, o yeah sailing / That bus come sailing
That bus come sailing / Sailing into view
