LYRICS

David Byrne - Girls on the Freeway (previously unreleased, written by East River Pipe)

Baby we’re fakin’
All roads are taken
The bottles have all run dry

I wish that you’d take off some of your makeup
And show me your face one time

You want some leeway
But girls on the freeway never go very far
This endless waiting
It sounds like a drill
But I promise I won’t leave a scar

Wouldn’t it be something
To take all the pain and throw it off for a day?
