Remember when we crept and crawled through the dark?
We stumbled through the Loop, took shots in Forest Park
It's been too damn long since we drank Jameson and sung our favorite songs to a silent city.
I'll sing you another Gateway City serenade tonight
In the hopes that it might get somewhere else
And I've sang this song one too many times
It's safe to say I'm on the verge of giving up
So lay me down in the Gateway To The West
These cracks in the sidewalk mark our history
I would rather drown in the depths of the Mighty Mississippi than to leave this song unsung
We walked down Washington Avenue
We tried to count the stars in the sky
But the glow from the headlights and the neon signs were always blocking our view
