How I want to tell you, that I love you like a storm,
That you made me remember the reason I was born,
That there is no way to fathom all your beauty and your light,
That everything that mattered disappeared in your eyes.

Driving back from Staten Island with a bullet in my arm,
I am sorry, my sweet darling, but the clerk tripped the alarm.
I think I still have a chance, if I make it to the Meadowlands,
But the wheel is wet and the clerk is dead and the rest is in God's hands.

And I will never have you, we will never meet again,
And the only way to love you is a song that I can't sing,
And I'm not really sure if you were even real,
As real as the morning star above the sleeping hills.

What can be said about it? Where can we arrive?
It's just some fantasy, a daydream, and a way to deal with life.
And there's only hope and prayer that we'll never be alone,
Love is never scared, Love lives in Bayonne.
