You want something to drink?
Okay, love?
Knock it off, give him back his toy!
What's the matter with you?
- I was just joking.

your own size!
Do you want someone to pick on you?
Jennette, is that you?
Oh, my God!

Jenny, you look incredible!
Thank you, you too.
Are those your kids?
This is Adam, this is Ben.
Say hi to Mommy's friend, John.
How's it going?
I love what you did with your hair.
So, uh, are you married?
Yeah, that
didn't work out so well.
No, same, same old situation.
You guys want a snack?
You get the Goldfish?
I got the Goldfish.
Oh good, you got the big bag.
So you were gone a while.
Were we?
I don't know, you know,
that's grocery shopping.
A few hours, at least.
You didn't forget anything?
What we talked about last night,
maybe going to the park today?
Oh no, I'm sorry, I did forget!
You're so sweaty.
Yeah, I was working on my bike.
Why does your hair smell?
You smell like cologne.
No, I don't.
Yeah, you do.
- Get off of me!
- Hold it!
Okay, get off me.
I'm just saying.
- Adam?
It's not cologne.
You know what, I'm done talking to you.
I don't believe a word you say.
Hey Adam?
Anything exciting happen
after the grocery store?
- Oh, for God's sakes.
- A new friend?
We talked to a friend of Mom's.
Is that what you told him to say?
Did he get it right?
- No, we just talked
for two seconds, shut up.
What was her name?
Leave him alone!
You're insane.
Where you going?
I'm not down talking to you!
Don't follow me.
Don't do that, I
hate when you walk away!
It's gonna be okay, I'll be right back.
Dad, what are you doing?
Leave her alone!
Fuck, I'm sorry!
Too many rock and roll times
Too many rock 'n roll times baby
It's gonna be the wreck
The wreck and ruin of me
I don't want you late
for first period again.
Are you dressed yet?
I made some breakfast,
but I got a busy day.
Too many wild hearts lay broken
Lost in love's hope
Of what might have been
Morning buddy.
Shoot, I burned these.
Oops, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry.
I want onions.
Just eat the eggs.
Just eat the eggs.
What's that toy you got there?
It's Neil Armstrong.
I'm gonna be an astronaut just like him
when I grow up.
Except I want to go to
further away planets.
He only went to the moon.
Just give me a quick
one before the test.
Okay, just any random one, right?
All right negligent representation
occurs when?
A broker should know that,
A broker should know
that a statement about
the material
fact is false.
You got it.
You're gonna be selling houses in no time.
Yeah, fingers crossed, I'm gonna be.
eat breakfast and do not
skip school today, okay.
Uh huh.
Hi Ms. Homer.
You know you want it, Ms. Homers.
No, not today.
Hey man.
Do you think she'll smoke
one of these with us one day?
There you go.
Oh shit, where'd you get this?
Don't worry about it.
It's gonna be a good day.
Shit dude, it's Sarah.
Say something.
No dude.
Say something man.
I'm not gonna talk to Sarah.
- Hey Sarah.
Looking good Sarah.
That's cute.
Look what you did.
She said that's cute.
Take this.
Why did you do that?
She spoke to us.
She spoke to you.
Now she's not gonna speak to me.
You have to start speaking up.
Whatever man.
Do you want to skip first period?
We have a history test first period.
You studied for that?
I mean I don't want to go to history.
Let's get out of here.
Great decision.
Did you see what she was wearing though?
Oh look at that.
Look at her friend looking at my butt.
She's checking me out.
She's not looking at you.
She's checking out my butt.
Now this is a record store.
You like Bowie?
All right.
Time doing nothing
I don't get it.
Like this is why I got an iPod.
What do you mean?
This is a lot.
Dude, I mean
music is supposed to be heard on vinyl.
It's authentic.
You know what else is authentic?
My iPod.
Your iPod is not authentic.
What are you talking about?
You kids
gonna buy something or what?
No thanks sir, we're just browsing.
Okay, well there's no
browsing in my store.
But something or get out.
Did he just say there's no browsing?
What do you mean no browsing?
We're in a store.
Yeah, it's not a library.
Buy something or get the hell out.
You know what sir,
this is terrible customer service.
Yeah, I'm trying to find a record.
So I won't be
making any purchases today.
Oh I'm sorry, maybe you should register
a complaint to the corporate office.
Actually, I change my mind.
I want to buy this.
Oh, I want to buy all of these.
I want to get that.
Get those ones.
And I want to get this.
Oh, I changed my mind again.
Jokes on you.
And guess what,
we actually had money.
Oh, what a shame.
Bro, I told you
today was gonna be a good day.
Yeah, I just hope Mr. Z's not pissed.
I actually like that class.
Nice man.
I mean I was gonna buy it,
but he was being a dick.
Hey Keith.
How do you talk to girls like Sarah?
Probably because I'm charming.
Got a little facial hair.
I'm being serious, come on.
It's confidence man, confidence.
You know what,
I'm gonna set you up tomorrow.
And you're not gonna know it's coming,
so you're not gonna be nervous.
What do you mean?
Don't worry about that, okay.
Let's make a bet.
Let's put 20 bucks on it.
All right.
20 bucks?
Easy money.
One can never be alone enough to write,
to see better.
The writer, Susan Sontag said that.
And Keats, you all remember Keats?
Keats said that solitude
is our greatest conduit
into truth and beauty.
A lot of great writers who were loners.
Angel's a great writer.
Thank you.
Having said that, how do we tell stories
without experience?
We need to interact with the world to
be inspired, right,
to grow as artists.
Dave Hume called it our
intercourse with the world.
Why is that funny?
All right, you all graduate
one month from today.
Your final assignment for me
to write about an experience
that moved you, that inspired you,
that rocked your world.
It can be about the love of
your life broke your heart.
Or the day you say a leaf fall from a tree
and thought it was beautiful.
10 pages minimum.
Now's a good time to start your outlines.
Come on, you got 20 minutes left.
I'm sorry, I think this is your pencil.
You know it's not my pencil.
Are we discussing your experience
with the leaf, Mr. Bruner?
I'm sorry, Mr. Z.
Mr. Z.
We need to go to the bathroom.
Actually yes, we ate a burrito together.
A bad burrito.
Actually, a problematic burrito.
Sit down, Mr. Kelly.
Is this your pencil?
I mean what
was I supposed to say?
Say Sarah,
you look beautiful.
Sarah this shirt complements your eyes.
Sarah, you want to go grab a bite to eat?
I'm not you dude.
I'm not smooth like that, you know.
We need to get you out of your element,
put you in a different environment
where nobody knows you.
I'm gonna cupid the shit out of you.
What are you talking about?
You know where we're gonna go?
I'm gonna get you some girls.
All girls.
Tall, short,
big, small.
You're ridiculous man.
Cheeseburger, cheeseburger.
John Belushi.
Oh, you cool, you got burgers.
No, I got a burger.
Sorry dude, I thought your
mom would have cooked for you.
I guess I shouldn't be
surprised she's not.
What the hell?
What's going on out there?
She's bathing Ben.
Why, is he a duck?
That shit's funny.
The bathroom hasn't been
fixed in like a month.
There you go.
Any fucking excuse, right.
You know, I worked 54 and
a half hours last week.
When the hell am I supposed to come home,
and do the plumbing,
and do the lawn,
and do all the other fucking shit.
No, no, keep writing.
I'll be in my room.
Here, take this.
No, I don't need it.
It's fine.
You don't need it now.
You can bitch about it,
but you don't need it.
Ah, this is beautiful.
We're gonna find the
perfect match for you, okay.
We're gonna get you a 10.
We ain't settling.
That's all I'm saying.
A 10?
Which one you want?
That one?
Not her.
Why you looking over there?
You said not her.
So I just look automatically.
No, don't look over there.
Oh, roller blades.
Talk to her.
Oh I am so sorry.
I'm so sorry.
Go talk to her.
Dude, why did you do that?
Let her hit you?
So you can talk to her, bro.
Oh right here, hey, hey, hey.
I'm done.
Dude, come on.
You wave to her bro.
I didn't know what to do.
I'm done.
This is pointless.
Just talk.
I don't know what to say.
I don't have game like you.
Let me do everything.
Let me do everything.
What do I say?
Watch this.

We lost them, bro.
Dude, they went through the crowd.
Your fault.
How is that my fault?
That's the one, go.
Dude, okay.
I'm doing it.
Excuse me.
I saw you standing over here.
my friend, Kieth,

That's cool.
Look, I,

I don't know,
it was on your hair.
Well I mean you just looked beautiful.
But I'm sorry though.
I didn't mean to bother you.
No, no, it's,

Yeah, I'll be there in a sec.
Hey, you know, my friends

Want to go?
Why not.

I don't know what I said.
Oh shit.
Maya, may I see your wrist,
or your hand?
Let me just see it, okay.
What a weirdo.
Look, I know it may look weird,
but you know your lover by her scent.
Even horses know,
that's why their nostrils get big
and you get the,
No I'm serious thought.
Shit dude.
It's all in the smell.

You guys came all the
way her from Torrance?
You know that's like

Shut up.
He's fucking speechless.
Come on.
You going psycho, right.
You're gonna end up in a dropped up car
with black guy.
You're gonna do some dancing.
That's gonna change his life,

It's empty.
Cause you drank all my beer, man.
You're kind of crazy, you know that.
Out of the car.
So which one first, dance.
We'll see.
Fuck off.
Ready to come on in
This is how we begin

Get in the fucking party.
I got you now

I'm so fucking sorry.
Watch where you're going.
I'm sorry.
I got you now
I didn't mean it.
Come on.
Take enough.
Shep doesn't like this stuff,
but it's good.
It is.
I feel like I'm corrupting you.
I got you now.
This part is fucking crazy.
Yeah it is.
Thank you for bringing me.
Thank you for coming.
I got you now.
Hey, what's up?
It's Cash.
We met at Jake's like three days ago.
How are you?
I'm really good.
You look good.
I do.
I'm gonna,
I'm gonna go see Keith.
I'll be right back
Oh, okay.
I'll be back.
Don't know why I bother
I know
Trying to find myself
before I find you
Are you having some fucking fun?
I'm so sorry.
I didn't mean to barge in here.
Give me that.
That's my Nikki.
She's beautiful.
Yeah, she is.
Don't know why I bother
So, how the fuck do you
know Alice?
I don't know, we kind of just met.
You don't say much, do you?
Not really.
How do you know Alice?
How do I know Alice?
How about
you get the fuck out of my room.
Okay, okay, I'm sorry.
It's okay, kid, it's okay.
I'll raise.
I'll raise.
I'm all in.
This is all in, buddy.
All right.
I know you tried
Read them an weep.
Wish I had a way
To run away from you
You don't know how to be a mother
You know.
Where's your god damned journal?
Hey everybody.
This is a work in progress.
Oh, I like this.
You're supposed to hit it with me.
I know, but it's got
to go somewhere else.
All right.
This is my house.
It's really nice.
It's all right.
That was
such a crazy night.
It was nothing.
I'm just getting started.
could I see your phone?
Here you go.
We should hang out sometime.
Yeah, maybe.
Have a good night.
You too.
I think I'm free tomorrow.
I'll send you a text file.
I had a lot of fun tonight.
Black holes
are some of the strangest.
Oh, hey buddy.
You're still up?
And they also.
Where's mom?
She's out.
Dad's in bed.
Visible places in space.
What you watching?
Black holes.
Did you know they eat galaxies?
I didn't know that.
That's really cool.
When a star runs out of gas to burn,
it collapses in on itself
and creates a black hole
that will suck in anything,
light, heat,
asteroids, spaceships,
hunks of metal,
Hunks of metal?
Most galaxies,
including the Milky Way
have black holes in their center.
Hey, I gotta get you
to bed though, okay.
It's really late.
All right.
Bring your toy with you.
Hey buddy, what's this?
If I sell enough candy,
I can go on the Disneyland trip.
How much money do you
got to make for that?
I need to make $50.
That's a lot of money.
How much have you made so far?
Not very much.
Oh really.
Here, let's get your toys
so you can get to bed.
I'm gonna put this up here, okay.
All right, let's get to bed.
Here you go.
Hey, I got something for you.
You can add this to your envelope.
- Yeah.
- All right.
I'm gonna go to bed.
Don't look at the stars too long.
All right.
I love you.
I love you too.
I have to go.
Stay up late?
You okay?
I'm all right.
How did your test go?
I didn't get to take it.
Tim had me do a double shift.
It's awesome, I'll take it next week.
You sure you're okay?
I gotta go.
Hello again.
School day?
Learn anything?
Not really.
It's really peaceful out here.
Yeah, I like it.
It's good for thinking,
and not thinking.
I love not thinking.
You live around here?
Uh huh.
Over there.
You can't see it from here.
You know I didn't think
I would ever see you again.
I have something I think you'll like.
I got it from Maya last night.
What is this?
Do I swallow it?
Uh huh.
Let me see.
Shep's band's playing tonight.
It'll be pretty cool.
I'm going with the girls.
You want to come?
Up, up, up.
What did you give me?
You'll see.
How you feeling?
My jacket feels so cool.
Feel my jacket.
I like the feel of your jacket better.
Me too.
You feel your hair?
Can you feel your hair glowing?
You know what'd be really cool?
If I had a jacket made out of hair.
Bring your pills.
You should really get a collar,
and then you could do this.
I know, right.
This is amazing.
Mountains near my molehill
You are lit.
He done Molly.
Molly, you're crazy, bro.
And it's so, so
So just meant forever
I know
I know
I know
I'm waiting for you
On and on
We drag ourselves through darkness
Loud and bleeding
Forcing you
To forget
The more is left behind
We run
We run
We run
Oh make space
I glory
I mend the peace
And free
I am alive
I will survive
Whoa is me
We run
We run
You okay?
If we're gonna be friends,
you can't ask me that.
How did you,
how did you sleep last night?
I slept good.
Your place is awesome.
I like it.
I have some stuff I got to do today.
I'll get,
I'll get going.
I had a really amazing time last night.
That's for you,
20 bucks.
Dude, forget it.
That's yours, take it.
Take that girl.
Oh my god,
I can't even describe it.
she's not a number,
she's not a number.
You know what she is,
she's an asterisk.
She's an asterisk.
Actually no, she's an exclamation mark.
What are you talking,
what are you talking about?
I know that look.
What's going on in your head?
I think I, I think I might...
Don't say those words.
Do not say it.
Yeah but...
Say that again,
I'll hit you across the
head with this rock.
All right man, I won't say it.
Rule number one, we don't say that word.
That's all I'm saying, okay.
Now you can go write it
in your little journal.
Fuck off man.
Don't say it out loud.
How's the bathroom coming?
It's coming.
I got a couple things
to get from Home Depot.
I'd like to take a
shower one of these days.
And the kid needs a real bath.
Where the hell have you been?
I spent the night at Keith's house.
Hey, how you doing Kieth?
What up, Mr. Broner.
Hey mom.
Hey Mrs. Broner.
Hey sweetie.
Yeah, we were just studying
for this big history test.
Yeah, I bet you were.
We were.
Look, did you know that
the national anthem
was inspired by the 1812 war?
So these guys just chilling
in his jail cell, right.
He see the bombs go off...
Hey, I don't really need the soda.
I'm not really thirsty or anything.
Yeah, the bathroom's upstairs.
Go fix it asshole.
Get off my fucking back.
Fix the bathroom, it's upstairs.
Get off my fucking back.
- Mrs. Broner.
- Yeah?
Has anybody told you
you look very beautiful today?
Dude, stop hitting on my mom.
Thanks, Keith.
Dude, I'm not gonna
bring you over here anymore
if you're staring at my mom all the time.
All right.
Do you need help folding
those clothes, Mrs. Broner?
Yeah, why don't you help me with these?
I love your mom.
What the hell, man?
Keith and Maya,
they wanted to go to the
movies tomorrow night.
Do you wanna go?
Oh, like a double date?
Yeah, I guess.
I have some shit I have to deal with.
What are you drawing?
No, show me.
Uh huh.
but just this page.
Cause the rest is kind of private.
This is really good, Adam.
Is this how you see me?
I see you exactly like that.
Hey Adam.
Oh, hey Raul.
What's up man?
Is my mom here?
I think she's on break
in the back, smoking.
Okay, cool.
Thanks a lot man.
Hey, good seeing you man.
Who the fuck is that?
Who the fuck is that?
God dammit.
Adam, I...
Who was that guy?
Does it fucking matter?
It doesn't matter.
Just nobody.
It does matter.
Who was he?
What am I supposed to do?
How can you ask me that?
I fucking hate it here.
I hate it here.
Don't you understand that?
Just leave me alone.
I failed.
You know that I really could have
anybody that I wanted.
Just leave me alone.
All this miserable madness
In the arms of a child
Every lecherous night
Every time that we cry
For the end of success
Who'd she fuck?
All this volatile violence.
I'm okay.
Every murderous soul
And they're every
scrutinous high enough
Descend to great sky
To perfect as I am
I'm okay
I'm okay
It's a brutality
Mentality, the common reality
I cannot abide
While you stand here and decide
If I can
Efforts in the battery
I walked into a conversation
I walked into
But underneath my feet
Let me lead you to the dance floor.
I danced from foot to foot
And honey you danced cheek to cheek
All you told me was move quicker.
I'm sorry.
Move quicker
Well I know the best is over
Your papers are on the desks.
You've missed 16 days
of school this year Adam,
which is ridiculous, and
offensive to me
cause my class is awesome.
Something going on at home
you want to tell me about?
You know attendance
is half you're grade,
And you're one of my best writers.
But school's gonna make me fail you
if you miss any more classes.
- I know.
You know?
Yeah, I do know, yeah.
Then why are you still standing there?
I don't know.
The movie, you're the movie.
Gonna sit in the back.
Watching me.
Boom house wave
I thought you had plans.
Changed my mind.
You want to come see the movie with us?
No, I don't want to see that shit.
Let's go.
I want to do something crazy.
She's wasted.
Not tonight.
Not tonight, dude.
The two of you don't know anything.
Like anything would go with her.
She's crazy.
Let's go.
Cause I've been a ghost
In a small town
That doesn't look like a good idea.
I get my hands on the wheel
It's fine.
I'll see you tomorrow, okay.
On that highway
Never look behind me
Something's got me
thinking about you still
They're not like us,
that's why they're not here.
Can we wait up.
There's a reason
What do you mean?

When I make it
Play the game.
Of my dreams
I hear you calling me
I had the new
Look, I'm sorry what happened earlier.
Hey, hey, hey.
It's all good.
It's just Alice marking her territory.
She has right here all the fucking time.
Did you
kind of feeling that
maybe Alice likes you?
You really think so?
Are you really that
deaf, dumb and blind, kid?
Of course she fucking likes you.
I don't know though, she just,
I don't know anything about her.
I don't know her family.
I don't know where she's from.
Maybe you don't need to.

Her mother

homeless in the streets.
I was downtown,

She was dirty.

It's okay.
There's my baby.
Hey Raffi.
Eyes like an angel.
This one.
Who this?
Oh, he's cool.
Don't worry about it.
Is that right?
You cool man?
He is.
This ain't enough.
Put it on my tab.
Your tab's too long baby.
There's other ways to pay.
Come on, Adam.
It's time to go.
Alice, I don't
know if we should do this.
Shut up.
Do you have any fucking better ideas?
How we gonna find the right house?
Just look for the one without lights.

That's what I said, Alice.
Well we need more.

Hanging out with you, Adam
You strung out little junkie bastard
It's almost out of your system.
Give it a bit of time, and
if you promise never to do it again,
I'll sing these songs forever.
You poor bastard.
Do you ever read, Adam?
Up the road in the shack,
the old man was sleeping again.
He was still.
Sleeping on his face.
And a boy,
he was sitting there,
watching him.
The old man's
about the lions.
What do you think?
If you don't like that,
you don't like ice cream.
I really like this one.
So what'd you get?
Did you dig it?
What'd you learn?
To not
chase a big fish.
And that Hemingway was a junkie.
My baby brother.
Come on kid, you're gonna be okay.
Wake up.
Mom, wake up.
Please wake up.
Please wake up.
Mangia, mangia.
Here we go.
Grab that towel, would ya.
Oh, yeah.
Don't want to fuck my table up.
You're welcome kid.
Hey, where's Keith at?
Keith's at school.
It's the weekend.
It's Saturday.
It's graduation day.
That's today?
Yeah, that was today?
don't worry about it.
You're gonna find your own journey.
It's cool.
All right?
You get soup, get strong,
that's good.
Do you want to hear a story?
Is it Hemingway?
Not quite.
Chapter one.
There was this dickhead
who came to my house
and shat and pissed
and crapped in my bed,
and on my floors.
And while he was doing that,
I did my very best to keep
that little fucker clean.
Me and Nikki's mom fell in love
when we were young,
very young.
She got pregnant.
My beautiful little Nikki came along.
Five years we tried playing house,
happy family, and all that.
I was too young, man.
So I just pack my bag one night.
And I was leaving.
And Nikki said to me the night before,
Daddy, will you take me
to the beach tomorrow.
And I said of course, darling.
Promise, I promise.
My last memory of her.
She was sitting on the couch
in this little,
a little polka dot suit,
waiting for her daddy.
Any man
that does that to a kid,
well he ain't no fucking man.
Look at that.
That now, my boys,
is what you call
fucking beautiful.
Here, this is a treat.
Don't go crazy you little bastard.
Oh, no, I quit.
Caroline's not into that.
I haven't heard from Alice at all.
I tried calling her.
I tried.
She won't return my texts.
I have heard from Alice in weeks.
I don't expect to.
It's just what she does.
Next guy comes along,
she disappears.
I think I can help her.
I mean like you guys helped me.
You think you can help her?
Do you think I didn't try to help her
all these years?
She ain't done until she is done.
It's just the way it is.
And until then,
there's nothing you can do.
I'm out.
Nice job.
Good luck.
Thanks, Shep.
Adam, honey.
Aunt Julie,
what are you doing here?
I'm so glad you're home.
Come in, I need to talk
to you about something.
Is everything okay?
Hey mom.
It's gonna be okay.
It's gonna be okay.
Hey, I'll be right here if you need me.
Thanks man.
You're trespassing.
I got clean.
Shep and Keith, they helped me.
I came back to help you.
You can't live like this Alice.
Please, come with me.
You can't be here anymore.
please come with me.
I love you.
I never loved you.
How can you say that to me?
I was just a story for you.
Uh huh.
Did you tell people about me?
Tell them what?
What are you talking about?
I will carry her heart with me,
my broken, beautiful soul,
my runaway.
I see myself in her
like a mirror
that I'm both afraid to look at,
and afraid to look away from.
She's damaged.
Keep reading.
Don't you get it, Alice?
I wrote you in here.
I wrote about me and us.
It's because I loved you.
Let me help you.
Get out.
Get out.
Get out.
Get out.
Get out.
Get out.
Get the fuck out.
I don't want to see you anymore, go away.
Get the fuck out.
Go on, get out.
Get out.
hey Adam.
Oh no, no, no, no.
Here you go.
Hey dad.
I wanted to
stop by and thank you for the bike.
You're welcome.
Look, I'm gonna go
away for a little while.
I just got to,
I got to figure my life out.
Sure, I get that.
I'll see you later, dad.
Be safe, will you?
I will.
You should go home.
I will.
That was my kid.
You believe it.
Hey buddy.
I got a present for you.
Space Mountain.
This is for you, okay.
But you got to promise me
that you take pictures, all right.
I will.
I'll take pictures.
You know, you're gonna be
a great astronaut someday.
I'm gonna see you on TV
flying around.
Don't be sad, it's gonna be okay.
All right.
I love you buddy.
I love you too.
Still got it.
See you, Keith.
Where the fuck
did you get that piece of shit?
My dad gave it to me.
Be careful on this thing.
You realize
to keep the rubber down on the ground.
I'd hate to lose you.
I'm very fond of you.
Thanks man.
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
I never thought that I
could love another person
Like I love you
But you've shown me how my heart works
I can't let you go baby
Hey, hey
You might be crazy
You're reminding me
But I don't ever want to let you down
I keep it from you
I just thought you'd
want to know, baby
Hey, hey
I'll be keeping
Me alive
Til I'm sleeping
By your side
Burning like a new sunrise
Sunning in the clearer skies
I'll be down the road baby
Hey, hey
Just pick up the phone, baby
Hey, hey
Waking up to brighter days
Washing all the filth away
I'll be here to hold, baby
Hey, hey
Counting from the cold baby
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
If I could find a way
to stare right now
I know you know I wouldn't hesitate
To make my your bed
Close to me, baby
Hey, hey
This time for me, I tread softly
In secret, greater
need to be a better me
For you and me
You see I want us to be good, baby
Hey, hey
I'll be keeping
Me in line
Til I find
My way to shine
Burning like a new sunrise
Turning into clearer skies
I'll be down the road, baby
Hey, hey
Just pick up the phone, baby
Hey, hey
Waking up to brighter days
Washing all the filth away
I'll be here to hold, baby
Hey, hey
Come in from the cold, baby
Burning like a new sunrise
Turning into clearer skies
I'll be down the road, baby
Hey, hey
Just pick up the phone, baby
Hey, hey
Waking up to brighter days
Washing all the filth away
I'll be here to hold, baby
Hey, hey
Come in from the cold
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
