The ponies run, the girls are young
The odds are there to beat
You win a while, and then it's done
Your little winning streak

And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat
You live your life as if it's real
A thousand kisses deep

I'm turning tricks, I'm getting fixed
I'm back on boogie street
You lose your grip, and then you slip
Into the masterpiece

And maybe I had miles to drive
And promises to keep
You ditch it all to stay alive
A thousand kisses deep

And sometimes when the night is slow
The wretched and the meek
We gather up our hearts and go
A thousand kisses deep

Confined to sex, we pressed against
The limits of the sea
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me

I made it to the forward deck
I blessed our remnant fleet
And then consented to be wrecked
A thousand kisses deep

I'm turning tricks, I'm getting fixed
I'm back on boogie street
I guess they won't exchange the gifts
That you were meant to keep

And quiet is the thought of you
The file on you complete
Except what we forgot to do
A thousand kisses deep

And sometimes when the night is slow
The wretched and the meek
We gather up our hearts and go
A thousand kisses deep

The ponies run, the girls are young
The odds are there to beat
You win a while, and then it's done
Your little winning streak

And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat
You live your life as if it's real
A thousand kisses deep
