Okta Logue – River Street Lyrics


Acid rain on River Street
Red lights flashing in the midnight heat
He changed your name, he stole your sleep
Seems we all have to make ends meet
Lonely nights and TV screens
Black lights shimmer on a satin sheet
Hey Joana
The signs in the alleys still glow
And you hope that the rain washes away the dirt and the blow
While you see your dreams on display on a board by the road
From the room where you’re waiting alone
The liquor store on River Street
Sells shiny travel magazines
By the parking lot A3
Bobby’s going down for E
Lonely nights and TV screens
Black lights shimmer on a satin sheet
Hey Joana
The signs in the alleys still glow
And you hope that the rain washes away the dirt and the blow
While you see your dreams on display on a board by the road
From the room where you’re waiting alone
As it’s raining on
The lights still not turning down low
And you ask yourself if they come on and off by remote
Like the strangers down at the bar who just show up and go
To a room with a number unknown
For years to come
Come undone
