In the Life

(VERSE: E A E B CHORUS: A E A B E)

I’ve been a trapper, out cruising the tender
The hungry young hustlers in the city of night
I’ve been a terror, a fierce younger lover
I’ve traded my body at times to survive

I’m haunting the hollows
the back alley boroughs
the dark movie theaters and discos and dives

If we hovered so nearly
Together just barely
Felt the wonder between us
What wonder we’d find?

Could you count all of those who abandoned the fight
Or list off the names of those who have died
In the city of night, the death tolls were raging,
The church bells were ringing, but not for our kind

Please pardon my yearnings
They hit without warning
My heart so commanding, my body, my mind
And all of our secrets that we hold between us
All shine so clear in the glowing moonlight

We’re haunting the hollows
the back alley boroughs
Dark movie theaters and discos and dives
If we hovered so nearly
Together just barely
Felt the wonder between us
Dear what would we find

If we hovered so nearly
Together just barely
Felt the wonder between us
Dear what might we find
