lyrics

Wound up downtown, she didn't know where she was going.
Walked down the wrong street. Had to go an extra mile.
Blisters on her feet from snakeskin high heels.
She never met the man who wrote poetry for money.

Took a taxi back home to her studio apartment.
She picked up her guitar and played a Joni Mitchell song.
A little wine in a glass. A cigarette in an ash tray.
Soon she would forget walking the extra mile.

She played a song called California.
She played the streets until they cried.
She was blue from the beginning.
She'll be blue until the end.
Counting down her days on Broadway with a view of Centerfolds.

She stayed up until the dawn. Watched the sun rise on the Bay Bridge.
Heard the traffic start the day. Laughed at the idiots going to work.
A little wine in a glass. An address in a notebook.
Written by the man who said he wrote poetry for money.

She played a song called California.
She played the streets until they cried.
She was blue from the beginning.
She'll be blue until the end.
Counting down her days on Broadway with a view of Centerfolds.
