Golden Cuff

What are you thinking in the middle of the night with a face staring back in the cold bathroom light
You can’t sleep but you can’t wake up
It’s just you and the tv and the truth that you can’t make right

10,000 miles or 20 years is not enough
There ain’t no key to unlock the golden cuffs

You wanna fly, fly, fly
But your wings got stuck
There’s nothing left to try
You’re feeling all washed up
It’s just a lie, lie, lie
You never beat that stuff
You need a lullaby, you got the golden cuffs

You caught a train in the fog and the rain,
Still lost in a daze and far away from home
So much time’s been lost on this line
It goes on and on and then another year’s been blown

10,000 miles and 20 years didn’t get you far
There ain’t no ride that could catch a shooting star

You wanna fly, fly, fly
But your wings got stuck
There’s nothing left to try
You’re feeling all washed up
It’s just a lie, lie, lie
You never beat that stuff
You need a lullaby, you got the golden cuffs


Oh, you wanna float away

What are you thinking on a New York night
With your eyes staring out underneath the cold stage lights
You can’t sleep and you can’t wake up
It’s just you and a crowd and the truth that they can’t make right

10,000 miles or 20 years is not enough
There ain’t no key to unlock the golden cuffs

You wanna fly, fly, fly
But your wings got stuck
There’s nothing left to try
You’re feeling all washed up
It’s just a lie, lie, lie
You never beat that stuff
You need a lullaby, you got the golden cuffs
