Outtake version 2

Rushes into the door
??? across the floor, hmm
I wish God's angels would tear this town down and blow it into the sea
And that's okay with me, and I don't care

She, she who is everything
And there's a fever that she brings, she's got everything, everything
I got caught wasting my life so bad
Just looking for the facts
Sometimes I feel like I'm walking dazed
The blood rushing in my veins, I hear it flow

She, she likes her of dreams come true
She don't know like I do, yeah she don't know like I do, not like I do
'Cause I was nothing over and over again
Alone when the nights roll in, without her

She needs her clothes and diamond rings
And she, she's got men who bring her anything she wants, but they don't see
That what she wants is me
Oh and I want her so, I'll never let her go, no no no
And me, I never want to be alone when the nights roll in
Without her, without her, without her


The above lyrics are for one of two circulating studio takes of THE FAST SONG. See outtake version 1 for more details.
