I know what you wanna say I think that you're all the same Constantly being led astray You think you know somethin' you don't
Downtown hot spots Halfway up the street I used to be free I used to be seventeen Follow my shadow Around your corner I used to be seventeen Now you're just like me
Down beneath the ashes and the stone Sure of what I've lived and have known I see you so uncomfortably alone I wish I could show you how much you've grown
Downtown hot spots I used to be on this street I used to be seventeen I used to be seventeen Now you're half shy Hanging on my block Sun coming up Who is my shadow?
La la la la la la la La la la la la la la La la la la la la la La la la la la la la
I know what you're gonna be I know that you're gonna be You're crumbling up just to see Afraid that you'll be just like me
Downtown hot spots Halfway through this life I used to feel free Was it just a dream? Now you're half shy Think you're so carefree But you're just seventeen So much like me You're just seventeen You're just seventeen Seventeen

"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
