​Boulevard

This song is by John Butler and appears on the album The Loyal Serpent (1997).

I don't want to work that hard
I don't need that kind of drive
I just want to hear that chord
I just want to lay on the boulevard

Your logic seems dumb to me
Your vision I don't see
Though I guess you feel fine as you are
Send yourself a greetings card
I've been thinking long and hard
I just want to lay on the boulevard
Life goes on, on the boulevard

When I choke on your gasoline
Drop no coins in charity
I don't want your big gold heart
I just want to lay on the boulevard

Sirens laughing into the night
All day parties, well, alright
But we come in alone, and we go out alone
I looked for you but you were broken
Singing songs you didn't understand
Well, this is my land
Toss my hat to the stars above
Don't need to be real
Things are real enough
You might as well know
This is straight from the heart
I just want to lay on the boulevard
Life goes on, on the boulevard

Smart, smart, real smart
Stand in the light
But live in the darkness
I believed in you when no one else did
Even after the gods had delivered their verdict
I was always there with a tuned guitar
With a gentle word or a poke in the arm
You might as well know
This is straight from the heart
Now you and I are miles apart
As I watch your shooting star
I just want to lay on the boulevard
