Minerva 02:49
just when it seems that the day is done watch the last rays of the setting sun and I get that feeling again the daylight is ending but the day hasn't come to an end yet tried the whole day but it got away just when I thought I'd get nothing done I get that feeling again the daylight is over but the workday is only begun the days are so short and the nights so long clarity rarely comes along 'til I get that feeling again like nothing else matters except for the matter at hand the day doesn't end 'til we say that it's over and do it all over again tomorrow we may try a different way and make up the hours that we lost today and hope for that feeling again hope for that feeling again

Circle Line 01:48
see her riding on the circle line taking pictures and passing time doesn't matter if it's rain or shine you can find her riding on the circle line she had never been to nyc but somehow knew it's where she wanted to be a secretary working 9 to 5 weekends you could find her on the circle line riding riding on the circle line doesn't matter if it's rain or shine had a boyfriend worked in radio he could get tickets to any show took her dancing every saturday night sunday you could find her on the circle line lived on lexington and 38th they were living fast and working late they could always pay the rent on time then they'd go out riding on the circle line riding riding on the circle line doesn't matter if it's rain or shine

driving down 5th avenue wishing I was one of you as long as I recall that's all I ever wanted with you when the sun goes down wreaking havoc on the town call me crazy but it's all I ever wanted maybe if I'm lucky you'll tell me that you like me maybe if I'm lucky you'll put me in a movie take me to a shopping mall take me anywhere at all as long as it's cheap and trashy that's alright take me to a party and make believe I'm with the band even though it's wrong you know I'll play along maybe if I'm lucky you'll tell me that you like me maybe if I'm lucky you'll put me in a movie

breath in and float to the top breath out and sink to the bottom everywhere I only found trouble trouble all around

all I long for at the end of a long day to be together with some people I know to hang around until the glasses are empty everyone needs somewhere to go I'm exhausted but I can't fall asleep the only thing that I've got energy for to sit around until you hear the last call everyone needs somewhere to go I see the felt is coming up from the table I hear the buzzcocks on the jukebox on low hang around until the ashtray is full everyone needs somewhere to go
