Outside St. Ignatius, outside of the law
You walk by so gracefully, I just stand in awe
You're a goddess, you're the hottest oddity I've found
We can go swimmin' in our skin and hope that we don't drown

I could save the water just by drinking it tonight
I can't find the words to make it right, to make it right
I can't find the words to make it right, to make it right

Tanked up out on Elm Street, looking for a ride
Stretched out on concrete, running out of pride
You need help dear, and I'm sincere, let me be the one
I'm not a big star but I've got a big car, you're too weak to run

You could save the highway if you'd crash with me tonight
