I knew a girl in Meteor City
We used to drive down on Crater Road
And I would hold her hand and she would look pretty
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
I'd spend my days in this run down cafe
Working for a room at the top of the stairs
And she would work the counter,
Man just to be around her
Was the only thing that kept me there
Couldn't wait for the cool night air
Couldn't wait for the cool night air

I knew a girl in Meteor City
We used to drive down on Crater Road
And I would hold her hand and she would look pretty
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
And I said oh, Sofia, where'd you get a name like that
Living in this dirt old town
She says "I think she was a movie star my father knew before I was born
But I really don't remember now, he left when I was so young
When I was so young"

I knew a girl in Meteor City
We used to drive down on Crater Road
And I would hold her hand
And she would look pretty
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
At night the stars they all jump through the sky
With the dreams that I miss so much
And I hate the emptiness and the pain inside
A little whiskey and a woman's touch
Yeah, it's as good as love
Yeah, it's as good as love

I knew a girl in Meteor City
We used to drive down on Crater Road
And I would hold her hand and she would look pretty
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
Didn't worry about the things that we just didn't know
