Double Down

rain behind the Double Down
she looks at him
he asks where to go
he misses the signs and he takes her home

The weather’s always perfect, the lights always bright
she dreamed, he watched
curtains are open and the sun
creeps in at the end of the night

One serious, five crazy, crammed in a booth
everyone looks better in black and white
A history of you and I’ll leave tonight
You’re right on the money

heavy eyes
and visions of
Father-like villains
and far gone lions
it’s the greatest voice of all time
Lucy’s like him, won’t really sleep tonight
Between a tapestry wall and a self proclaimed angel
Lids will close when eyes are dry

One serious, five crazy, crammed in a booth
everyone looks better in black and white
A history of you and I’ll leave tonight
You’re right on the money

Marquees light up
Hold hands through the rain
Under a carousel to the circus in the middle of the day
The four eyed hometown wizard
Spins and sweats
Bumps and twirls
In his purple cape
