Let's go for a drive Pass our troubles on the left hand side again I may be somewhat out of line I was thinking by-the-by It ain't no surprise To see you with a rueful smile and then I may be just a parvenu And my routine's wearing thin Used to say a little prayer every evening Now I can't be sure just who I'm deceiving I can't help but fly From overweening blowhards causing strife To set the world to burning down To hide what they'd contrive They took us unaware Poured rhetoric and bile on our lives Dressed up like it's a point-of-view Though it hardly seems they tried Used to say a little prayer every evening Now I can't be sure just who I'm deceiving

Must've been some night on the Billyburg Bridge Must've been some fright to make you do what they said I don't believe we can account but what is done is did You should've seen the faces of me and your friends They say that you can't know what lies in the hearts of men I don't believe we can account the means or the ends To think that we were strangers once in this strange land We passed through mortal dangers to catch-as-catch-can I don't use coincidence to makeshift and mend I can see the traces you left everywhere They're written in the buildings and streets and the air I don't think we could erase you even if we dared 'Cause we're searching for a reason To say it's no one's fault With the turning of the seasons I go past Every single inch that I have trod Must've been some night on the Billyburg Bridge Must've been some fright to make you do what they said I don't believe we can account but what is done is did
