constantinople, that's a place I've never been wide eyed & hopeful, these are lives I'll never live, the curtain is going up let the alligators in, and we'll TRY. & it's the roughest, when you hear those runners shout & I'm not the toughest but I will run those runners out, the curtain's always rising & the audience can't read but we'll TRY. I wrote this song before, I'll probably write it again, same-old-sorry-chords, all letters I can't send, I'm not a captain, I'm just another land-locked fish (& I'm going belly up...)
