lyrics

We climbed fire escapes up buildings
Like they were peaks upon the mountains
And I was madly in love for the first time

And so it happens with every spring
When honey suckle finds the breeze
That I want that girl all over again
And then I miss that girl all over again
Nearly take my life all over again
Now I know this pain
Now I know too much

I'll probably need
A fake I.D.
To get me into heaven

Now I get lost in strange neighborhoods at night
Admire quiet houses with the lights on inside
I'd give up independence to be safe and loved again
If I knocked maybe they'd let me in
Maybe they'd even call me son
Forget I'm just a stranger on an elevator ride
I could sit down at their table and eat their dinner
Pet their dog and tell them when I grow up
I don't wanna be alone or grown or old
Do you think that they would tuck me in
Kiss me goodnight and tell me
"Son, we're all heading toward the wildest light"

But I'll probably need
A fake I.D.
To get me into heaven

Mary can I bum a ride
I'm trying to get to heaven
I looked at every map but they're all blank inside the atlas
Some may find themselves in hell along the way to heaven
