I should stay away from open windows, and put the telephone down. Can I run as fast as this house will fall, when the alarm bell sounds? No, I was never much of a dancer but I know enough to know I gotta move my idiot body around. And I can’t, can’t settle down until the idiot in my blood settles down. And if I found you me in this city, and called it Paradise.I say, I love me but I hate this city, and I’m no prize.
I want to walk around like you own the joint, the way that Icarus thought he might own the sky. I said I can’t, can’t settle down, until the Icarus in my blood, in my blood drowns. And I know my heart, and I know my heart, and I know your heart, but you can’t, can’t settle down.
