Tomorrow's Clothes

I can't believe this hot city and it's only May
And I sweated through my wallet back up there on the stage
I can't wait to get to Brooklyn for a shower and a change but
Oh you kid  

Still feel you smiling in the back of my brain
And I'm dressed up in tomorrow's clothes though it's still today
And I thought of all the things that I wished that I could say but
Oh you kid  

Can't talk about it now
But it's running through my brain
Sitting high above the city but 
My feet still feel the train that
Shudders like my shoulders when I'm
On my way to prove something 
I always believed in but I
Never knew was true   

Sit here at the table with a drink in my hand 
This didn't go exactly like I thought that I had planned
And I don't know how to pilot this ship to dry land but
Oh you kid  

I want to drink until I look as good as you do to me
I want to sing to you now so you'll sing me to sleep
I want to know if I've got anything here that you need but
Oh you kid  

Can't talk about it now
But it's running through my brain
Sitting high above the city but 
My feet still feel the train that
Shudders like my shoulders when I'm
On my way to prove something 
I always believed in but I
Never knew was true   

I can't believe this hot city and it's only May
And I sweated through my wallet back up there on the stage
I can't wait to get to Brooklyn for a shower and a change but
Oh you kid  

Still feel you smiling in the back of my brain
And I'm dressed up in tomorrow's clothes though it's still today
And I thought of all the things that I wished that I could say but
Oh you kid  

Can't talk about it now
But it's running through my brain
Sitting high above the city but 
My feet still feel the train that
Shudders like my shoulders when I'm
On my way to prove something 
I always believed in but I
Never knew was true
