You cracked up too soon
Before the punchline hit home
At the end of the joke
Did you notice that no-one was
Laughing with you
You were out on your own

Waving at trains
Waving at cars
Waving from bars
Waving from aeroplanes
Might as well be waving at stars

You called out her name
As the darkness hit home
Raised up your Zippo
And opened the skies
Till the crowd melts away
At the end of the day
You ran out of light

Praying for rain
Praying for signs
Praying for time
Praying for endless night
Might as well be wishing on stars


Live 1999

You cracked up too soon
Before the punchline hit home
At the end of the joke
Did you notice that no-one was
Laughing with you
You were out on your own

Waving at trains
Waving at cars
Waving from bars
Waving from aeroplanes
Might as well be waving at stars

You called out her name
As the darkness hit home
Raised up your Zippo
And opened the sky
Till the crowd melts away
At the end of the day
You ran out of light

Praying for rain
Praying for signs
Praying for time
Praying for endless night
Might as well be wishing on stars
