lyrics

Murphy collects his waitresses
like coins or stamps or bruises
does his best reconnaissance
on three hours sleep
says you judge a man
by the company he chooses
says you judge a woman
by the hours she keeps

Early morning... late night
5:00 at the Satellite

Chelsea takes your order
like some angel out of nowhere
smiles as if she knows you
and you just don’t know
She wants to be in love
if she could find a way to go there
Wants to be in bed
a couple hours ago

chorus

And love comes raining down
when no one’s looking
and no one sees it
pouring from the skies
And when you step outside
the streets are shining
Colored light reflects
into your eyes

And I’m collecting anecdotes
I’ll tell ‘em if you let me
I’ll say it’s for my novel
and it could be true
I measure my disasters
by the laughs that they could get me
chasing off the past again
with someone new

5:00 at the Satellite

And love comes raining down
when no one’s looking
and no one sees it
pouring from the skies
And when you step outside
the streets are shining
Colored light reflects
into your eyes
