Beggin' down these sun beaten streets
I can't make for no connection
Locals here don't speak no English
Where is my woman, no one knows

It seems some girls just have to leave in the night
When you're fast asleep
But I don't worry, I move in the dark
There were lights, there were border lights

I thought I heard a drum in the distance play
I saw the light, I crossed my heart and beat angels were there

I awoke in some hotel room
Could hardly remember my name
They were only sixteen years old
I was so cold, I was so ashamed

If sometime I just have to leave
In the night, when you're fast asleep
Turn up your radio and I move in the dark
There will be lights, there are border lights

Thought I heard a drum in the distance play
I saw the lights
Crossed my heart and beat angels were there

You might wonder where one goes wrong
It was somewhere in a foreign rain that sent him out to stone
Every lamplight in town
Man don't know what he's got it his veins

Until beat angels come, take him away
Play on beat angels
