Are we getting lost in the dark city
Where the girls are fake but all pretty
As we drive along the boulevard
Of broken dreams and vagabonds
We needed to know, which way to go
We need not fear, we need not go

You said I won't be long
Just go wait in the car
You said just wait here
I've been waiting for a hundred years

Sweet lady liberty
Could you liberate me
From this car inside the parking lot
Where we lost all our Irish luck
Darling keep breathing
Darling don't leave me
Outside in this parking lot
Where we lost all of our good luck

Are we getting lost under street lamps
Where bugs crawl and shadows dance
As we drive on down this unknown road
Where pavement sags and lives erode
Do we need to get directions
Yes you needed to get afflictions

Are we getting lost in our own minds
Has fear and strange made us blind
As we drive up to this blockade
Are we drawing our own chalk lines
Do you want something to drink
You God did you not think?

You said I won't be long
Just go wait in the car
You said just wait here
I've been waiting through a hundred tears

Sweet lady liberty
Could you liberate me
From this car inside the parking lot
Where we lost all our Irish luck
Darling keep breathing
Darling don't leave me
Outside in this parking lot
Where we lost all of our good luck

I saw it through the window
Gun pressed against your chest
I saw it kill you so slow
Like a noose around your neck
Lying on the pavement
Under flickering light
A dawn of realization
That you're not coming home tonight

Sweet lady liberty
Could you liberate me
From this car inside the parking lot
Where we lost all our Irish luck
Darling keep breathing
Darling don't leave me
Outside in this parking lot
Where we lost all of our good luck

I don't you can see, I only use my superpowers for good...

parking lot
Great song. Love the chorus. A little nit pick - the rules for the 'song challenge' is that 'coming home' must be in the refrain/chorus or in a line of each stanza. You have it in the bridge. So here's what I'll do for this terrific song - I'll let the readers choose if this should be allowed. Please,readers comment on this song and give me your vote - allowed or not!
(My vote is that it should be allowed - this time!) ;)
Good job my friend - as usual!
Bless you!
