Rickie Lee Jones

Julie got some ecstasy, she laid down on the steering wheel

Love comes to the first thing love sees

Love comes to the first thing that makes it real, makes it real

Everybody's been hit, everybody's been hurt

Everybody's been kicked, everybody's been dirt

Everybody had to drive all night to reach L.A. in the morning light

Try to lighten up, want to back you up

But you just back down

Julie got some brown girlfriend, got it for a coin

Landlord threw her clothes out on the street in the tenderloin

Everybody's been a dog, everybody's had to beg everybody's been a moth,

Been a moth, when she woke up on her knees, everybody made her say please

I was in a wild place where I go, I couldn't hear you

Julie found god in a bus station and she liked it a lot

You put your money in the basket that comes, you remember the first one that you bought

Everybody starts out pure, starts out ridiculous, starts out beautiful nobody wants to be alone

Out here I'm all on my own

I try to lighten up, I always bear down, I want to back you up

Julie found a sailor boy, sailed off to the deep blue sea

So Firewalker you can walk on me, walk on me...
