  • On the wings
    Of a firefly evening
    I feel like the only one
    A lucky son of a gun.
    Unafraid
    Of your talents and inklings
    You are the only one who
    Has kept my motor runnin, oh

    You got yourself into this
    You got yourself into this
    You've got your heart on your sleeve
    And that's right where it belongs!
    You got yourself into this
    Just swing again if you miss
    You've got your hand in the spokes
    And that's right where it belongs
    Where it belongs... where all the songs come from.

    On the way
    If I stumble and bleed a bit
    Remember half the fun is
    Just being on the run, ya know.

    You got yourself into this
    You got yourself into this
    You've got your heart on your sleeve
    And that's right where it belongs!
    You got yourself into this
    Just swing again if you miss
    You've got your hand in the spokes
    And that's right where it belongs
    Where it belongs... where all the songs come from.

    We got ourselves into this
    We got ourselves into this
    We've got our hearts on our sleeves
    And that's right where they belong!
    We got ourselves into this
    Ten toes into the abyss!
    We've got our hands in the spokes
    And that's right where they belong
    Where they belong... where all the songs come from. Publisher: ROUGH TRADE PUBLISHING
