Casey's Last Ride Video:
Paroles de Casey's Last Ride Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walkin'down the stairway to the subway in the shadows down belowFollowing their footsteps thru the neon darkened coridorsOf silent desperation, never speakin' to a soulThe poison air he's breathin' has the dirty smell of dyin''Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rainBut Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoesOf the clickin' of the turnstile and the rattle of his chains "Oh", she said "Casey it's been so long since I've seen you" "Here" she said, "Just a kiss to make a body smile" "See" she said, "I've put on new stockings just to please you" "Lord" she said, "Casey can you only stay awhile"Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the Golden CrownFor somethin' wet to wipe away the chill that's on his bonesSee'ing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely menWho reach for anything they can to keep from going homeStanding in the corner, Casey drinks his pint of bitter,Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing byThen he stumbles as he's leavin' and he wonders if the reasonIs the beer that's in his belly or the tear that's in his eye "Oh" she said, "I suppose you seldom think about me" "Now" she said, "Now that you've a family of your own" "Still" she said, "It's so blessed good to feel your body" "Lord" she said, "Casey, it's a shame to be alone""Oh" she said, "Casey, it's been so long since I've seen you""Here" she said "Just a kiss to make a body smile""See" she said, "I've put on new stockings just to please you""Lord" she said, "Casey, can you only stay a while""Lord" she said, "Casey it's a shame to be alone"
