Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well you floated in on a helium balloon
Out of your fishbowl and into the fire
First you sung her praises, drunk on her glow
Then you cursed her name when you lost control
Verse 2
Well you floated in on a cotton candy cloud
Out of your desert and into the flood
But the cobblestone mud seeped into your crown
Oh, the silent crowd could melt you down
Verse 3
I rode in on you into this city
I'll ride out on you if everything falls
I rode in on the rhythm of a Greyhound guitar
With the pulse being kept by the rain
Verse 4
Well I heard your voice as the tiles gave way
And the third rail came into view
On an upbound round of a downtown train
And anyone can take a piece of you
Verse 5
And I can't help but wonder as the faces roll past
Did she leave anything behind?
I stare for a moment from behind the glass
Drowned out by the train engine's whine
Verse 6
I rode in on you into this city
I'll ride out on you if everything falls
I rode in on the rhythm of a Greyhound guitar
With the pulse being kept by the rain
Verse 7
Neon moondust shines in Times Square
The pulse of the alleys echoing
In a cab going downtown, I am found, New York
Verse 8
I rode in on you into this city
I'll ride out on you if everything falls
I rode in on the rhythm of a Greyhound guitar
With the pulse being kept by the rain
