lyrics

She said to me, “Do you come in here frequently?”
I paused to think about what my reply should be
No one around this place would ever say I act secretly
I guess I’ve had my hat in hand since I was seventeen

I live without a net out on a wire
Always a candle looking for another fire
I guess I’m still payin’ dues
Still dreaming ‘bout blue suede shoes
Tomorrow’s always gonna be a fight
But I still believe in tonight

When I left home I thought I could make something good
God knows I tried to not run down the neighborhood
But I’ve been shaking down anyone who’d give a half a listen to a song I sung
I end up working so much harder than most anybody else just to have a lot less fun

I live without a net out on a wire
Always a candle looking for another fire
I guess I’m still payin’ dues
Still dreaming ‘bout blue suede shoes
Tomorrow’s always gonna be a fight
But I still believe in tonight

Tonight – I can’t live in tomorrows that never come
Tonight – I can’t carry the sorrows from what’s been done
All you are is you – and all I am is me
So I sing, So I sing

I live without a net out on a wire
I’m always the candle singing, ‘baby, light my fire’
I guess I’m still payin’ dues
Still dreaming ‘bout blue suede shoes
Tomorrow’s always gonna be a fight
But I still believe, ‘cause I live without a net out on a wire
Always a candle looking for another fire
I guess I’m still payin’ dues
Still dreaming ‘bout blue suede shoes
Tomorrow’s always gonna be a fight
But I still believe in tonight
I still believe in tonight
