Lyrics

And though it may seem absurd
I left those skyscrapers for somebody else
I was choking on the dust and the fumes
But I was attracted like a moth to the light
I know it's bad for me but I can't refuse
I've got the feeling so strong tonight

I'm gonna take myself down to the river
I'm gonna lay my body down
I'm gonna take myself down to the river
So I can rest my bones awhile
And if you wait for me ‘till the sun comes up
I'll meet you down for breakfast at our favorite restaurant
And we can talk for awhile ‘till I fade off to sleep
I said I'll disappear ‘till dinner; you won't hear a peep

I've been giving my landlord the runaround
But you can only string them along so far
There's cigarette butts all up and down the stairwell
And he wants to know what's been going on
Well, maybe I should just tell him the party starts at two a.m.
and runs on straight through dawn

I'm gonna take myself down to the river
I'm gonna lay my body down
I'm gonna take myself down to the river
So I can rest my bones awhile
And if you wait for me ‘till the sun comes up
I'll meet you down for breakfast at our favorite restaurant
And we talk for awhile ‘til I fade off to sleep
I'll disappear ‘till dinner now; you won't hear a peep

And though it may seem absurd
I left those skyscrapers for somebody else
I was choking on the dust and the fumes
But I was attracted like a moth to the light
I know it's bad for me but I can't refuse
I've got the feeling so strong tonight, yes I do

I'm gonna take myself down to the river
I'm gonna lay my body down
I'm gonna take myself down to the river
So I can rest my bones awhile
And if you wait for me ‘till the sun comes up
I'll meet you down for breakfast at our favorite restaurant
And we can talk for awhile ‘till I fade off to sleep
I said I'll disappear ‘till dinner; you won't hear a peep
I said I'll disappear ‘till dinner now, you won't hear a peep
I said I'll disappear ‘till dinner now, you won't hear a … peep
