I once knew a girl / i can't remember her name but i remember her face cos her sister looked the same.
They both left school, but they couldn't find a job / so they said farewell and stole a small town car.
As they were riding by the beach some summer night / the radio shouted out one of those songs that might just change your life / - it went like this: "checkin' in checkin' out / making love
Ke watching all your fireworks / i like it when i light those stars in your eyes / just like fireworks in the sky" / - yes it did...
Throwing some poems to the ports and docks / they were sleeping outdoors pushing all their luck.
They sent me a letter full of pills and thrills / then they both got rich and moved to hollywood hills.
Yea they made lots of money playing folk guitar / cos everywhere the boys went crazy just to hear these words of art: "checkin' in checkin' out / take it to the sky / making love i like wat
All your fireworks / i like it when i light those stars in your eyes / just like fireworks in the sky".
They're coming to get you / they're coming to get you now / coming to get you now / watch the sky!
