lyrics

smoke up sonny while you're standing there
killing time with the wind at your back
watch the ground as her red shoes
shine and glide and reverse like a Cadillac
she must've seen you coming sonny
I guess she smelled it in the air
can't change her mind by just
showing up to show that you're there

and now she's dancing in the rain on the sidewalk
smiling and holding out her hand
wondering all her life just
where you've been
and now you're holding the phone and you're shaking
she's crying on the other end
sometimes sonny things break
break but don't bend

head up honey when you're walking here
you never know who you'll meet in this crowd
and hit the ground with your red shoes
this dirty town never sounded so loud
and when your eyes meet slow and lonely
just back it up and turn around
now you're floating you're
floating but with your feet on the ground


and now you're dancing in the rain on the sidewalk
smiling and holding out your hand
wondering all her life just
where he's been
and now you're holding the phone and you're crying
there's nothing on the other end
sometimes honey things break
break but don't bend
