Met you last night under downtown lights
Was tuned up in the morning somewhere in the heights
Cars passed by like bulls in the street
Somewhere typewriters clack a beat

Oh Lady Brett, we haven't met yet
But you can call me Jake, or what you're going to anyways
I don't believe in dreams rusting through the sheen
So I'm gonna step aside and just let you pass by

Love means some poor saps gonna come crawling back
Yeah we all play the joker in the Queen’s shack
Even the wise get sent to school
We all learn everybody plays the fool
Still I saw you alone in a restaurant just the other day
Reading The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway
Doesn't take much time for things to change
You'll still wonder after the last page

And if you're still confused
I can offer up a little help
You'll wind up with the one you love the best
The one you love best is yourself
