lyrics

I stopped by your party just to make a show of letting go
and give a little comfort to the enemy
and that old radio was playing that new song that everybody loves
except for me

so I slipped out to the balcony
to practice a little alchemy
and try to turn my heart back into gold.
I guess I thought, eventually
someone would come outside with me
but I'm just blowing smoke and getting cold.

I saw a child's drawing in chalk, half-erased on the sidewalk
and wondered what it was supposed to be
but I wouldn't want to look the artist in the eye
or he might start to see the things that I can see

I want a formula for saving souls
I'll keep on mixing up chemicals
and one of these days I'll get it right
but in the meantime
I don't need the light of heaven shining in my eyes
I just need a little halo for the night
just a little halo...

So until those stars look right to me
I'll keep practicing my alchemy
and try to turn this heart back into gold.
I still hope, eventually, someone will come outside with me
but I'm just blowing smoke and getting cold.
It's getting cold.
