Jaded Heart

There’s a fog out on the Bay
Just the same as yesterday
All surprises here are self-imposed
If this city were a lover
You would find under the cover
Her golden arms are open
But her jaded heart is closed

There’s a fog out on the Bay
Just the same as yesterday
But it’s 1966 still down on Haight
In the Valley it’s ’97
That was their idea of heaven
For both the end came early
With lessons learned too late

There’s the City of Brotherly Love
And the City That Never Sleeps
Every night this city crawls
Beneath the sheets
And weeps…

There’s a fog out on the Bay
Just the same as yesterday
There’s a new philosopher in every bar
Disciples make their pledge
To the shifting leading edge
Believing that the future is
Nowhere but where they are

There’s a fog out on the Bay
Just the same as yesterday
All surprises here are self-imposed
If this city were a lover
You would find under the cover
Her golden arms are open
But her jaded heart is closed
