lyrics

17 years I've been running and hiding
Never thought loving was sweeter than this
Now I'm alone again, I'm only thinking
Of soul brother Steven, the man that I miss

Now I'm alone again, I'm only thinking
Of soul brother Steven, the man that I miss

Carry on cruising the crowds at the Catacombs
Carry on hustling into the night
Easy way out for the suckers and chickens
But I've lost my mainman, the love of my life

Easy way out for the suckers and chickens
But I've lost my mainman, the love of my life

Steal me a car and a bottle of Teachers
A few dozen downers, I'll go out in style
Goodbye sweet Steven and pretty boy Peter
I'll see you on Easy Street after awhile

Goodbye sweet Steven and pretty boy Peter
I'll see you on Easy Street after a while
