Firewalker Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Julie got some ecstasy
She laid down on the steering wheel
Love comes to the first thing love sees
Love comes to the first thing
That makes it real, makes it real

Everybody's been hit, everybody's been hurt
Everybody's been kicked, everybody's been dirt
Everybody had to drive all night
To reach L.A. in the morning light

Try to lighten up, want to back you up
But you just back down
Julie got some brown girlfriend, got it for a coin
Landlord threw her clothes out
On the street in the tenderloin

Everybody's been a dog, everybody's had to beg
Everybody's been a moth, been a moth
When she woke up on her knees
Everybody made her say please

I was in a wild place where I go, I couldn't hear you
Julie found God in a bus station and she liked it a lot
You put your money in the basket that comes
You remember the first one that you bought

Everybody starts out pure, starts out ridiculous
Starts out beautiful, nobody wants to be alone
Out here I'm all on my own
I try to lighten up, I always bear down
I want to back you up

Julie found a sailor boy
Sailed off to the deep blue sea
So Firewalker you can walk on me
Walk on me
