Last Dance Rodeo - Jewel

your lungs fill up with concrete / a voice is all you can hear / red lips and a screwdriver / wrapped around some mink-clad smear

and you know that she's a diamond / in this damned juke box hell / 'cause fools gold only fools fools in two-bit hotels / but she's cooler than all that / she's a real high-class cat / she's the queen of the last-dance rodeo

but under the gas lamp / the air is thick and velvety / your bones fill up with hunger / your heart filled with longing / you're no longer human / you're an insatiable hole / you wanna bury your face forever / in the navel of her soul / 'cause you know ...

all you need is a heart to call home / all you need is a heart to call home / that's all

light bulbs and nylons / and plastic chandeliers / objects are only objects / they can't feel when you're near / and tangerine lips / and lily-white breasts / these things are eternal / inside them humanity rests / the skin is like a seashell / you listen to the soul / like an old-time radio show

but under the gas lamp / the air is thick and velvety / your bones fill up with hunger / your heart filled with longing / you're no longer human / you're an insatiable hole / you wanna bury your face forever / in the navel of her soul / 'cause you know ...

all you need is a heart to call home / all you need is a heart to call home / that's all

but don't wander too far / my one constant star / darkness exists, except where you are / my feet are filled with wandering / they follow your own / 'cause everywhere you are / feels like home

so search all you miners / you hunters of dreams / look in the alleyways / for what you know is not what it seems / and fame, all you maidens, it don't exsist too long / at least look behind you / and see your own shadow is gone / don't you know it's the last-dance rodeo / you gotta find yourself a cowboy / or someone to keep you warm when it snows

but under the gas lamp / the air is thick and velvety / your bones fill up with hunger / your heart filled with longing / you're no longer human / you're an insatiable hole / you wanna bury your face forever / in the navel of her soul / 'cause you know ...

all you need is a heart to call home / all you need is a heart to call home / that's all
