You wander around on your own little cloud

When you don't see the why or the wherefore

You walk out on me when we both disagree

'Cause to reason is not what you care for

 I've heard it all a million times before

Take off your coat, my love, and close the door

Don't sleep in the subway, darlin', don't stand in the pouring rain

Don't sleep in the subway, darlin', the night is long

Forget your foolish pride, nothing's wrong

Now you're beside me again

 

You try to be smart, then you take it to heart

'Cause it hurts when your ego is deflated

You don't realize that it's all compromise

And the problems are so overrated

Goodbye means nothing when it's all for show

So why pretend you've somewhere else to go

Don't sleep in the subway, darlin', don't stand in the pouring rain

Don't sleep in the subway, darlin', the night is long

Forget your foolish pride, nothing's wrong

Now you're beside me again

Don't sleep in the subway, darlin'...
