Nothin' on the Line

Like a highway at night, your voice is far off and low,

Like New York from the air, it’s all said below,

I’m on the line with you and some things unseen.

Let’s talk each other to sleep, forget our dreams.

 

[chorus]

hang up this love, we have to hang up our love,

your heart is mined, but we’ve got nothin’

more to say on the line

 

In Baghdad, roadside stands in bloom,

I’ve got a gun, some gin, and a cheap hotel room.

I been running away, gainin’ less and less,

if I could remember my sins, I’d stop and confess.

 

We have to hang up this love,

we have to hang up our love,

your heart is mined,

but we’ve got nothing

more to say on the line

 

I been out of the house, and down by the park,

The city wakes, getting light with the dark,

down by the street, dealers talkin’ their deal.

sayin’, anything you love you got to steal.

 

Sittin’ by the river, downstream from my mind,

We weren’t that mean, but we weren’t that kind.

church on sundays, old air alcove,

I’ll give you a call someday, talk about some god above.

 

Gonna hang up this love,

we have to hang up our love,

your heart is mined,

but we’ve got nothing

more to say on the line.
