On the night that my love broke through
On the night that my love broke through
Revelations that came unglued
On the night that my love broke through

Cell doors were opened, guards step out the way
Prisoners got one acre of land and one year's pay
Flowers long since dead stiffened at the neck
Colors came back in green and yellow and in red

Unemployed cowboy staggered on Fairfax
Trucks pulled up and fifteen men hollered and hopped in back
A copy of Bukowski at the bottom of the stack
Got picked up by some dropout who read it front to back
Shoving off the death hands of his past

Ants were crawling out of grimy bathtub drains
Janitor was laughing, he had finally gone insane
City buses swerving, arriving right on time
Vending machines were selling glasses of white wine by the dime

Streetlights got a burst of electricity
Sparks danced across windshields like a grand finale
Metal detector's beeping, sound was deafening
Everywhere bearded men dug up wedding rings
We all stopped to listen to him sing

On the night when my love broke through
On the night when my love broke through
Revelations that came unglued
On the night when my love broke through

On the night, on the night
On the night, on the night
