Boiled In Lead — Red Lights And Neon lyrics

I hope you don't mind if I
Rest inside your door
Please forgive the snowy footprints
I'm tracking on your floor.
I only want to stop and rest
Don't want to start no fight.
I'll just wait here for a while
'Till the police car's out of sight.
For as long as I remember
I've hated those red lights
And hotel rooms with plaster walls
And loud and lonely nights.
It seems like I've been on this road
Ever since I was a kid
I could tell if I was sorry
If I remembered what I did.
A wanted man in New Orleans
Matches my description.
Mister druggist please be kind enough
To refill my prescription.
If I had to do it over
This ain't the life I'd choose
But the road still runs and so do I
And at least I made the news.
And the streetlights never waver
And the red lights never dim
And the neon always glitters
And it was better me than him.
[ Lyrics from: ]
