soda shop
music and lyrics by jay brannan

the sidewalk is rushing at my head again
i’m lying on the street in the rain and wind
from doing forward rolls down avenue A
with my guitar on my back, don’t let it end this way

somehow i dialed my cell
i didn’t know i could get service in hell
how quickly can you get here, don’t know where i am dear
finally the world actually seems to be revolving around me

i overdid it at the soda shop
thanks for being my girl at the
i-don’t-know-when-to-stop sock hop

you held my head over the edge of the bed
i remember it now, but at the time i thought i was dead
you put a pan there, and held back my hair
how can i repay you for saving me and my hardwood floor?


and when the world stopped spinning ’round
i picked the pan up off the ground
i read my upheaves, much like tea leaves
they said it’s over, so get sober, or you’ll die again
