Lyrics:
I'm coming over
See me down at the station
By the lane
With my hands in my pocket
Jingling a wish coin
That I stole from a fountain
That was drownin'
All the cares in the world
When I get older
Climbing up on the back porch fence
Just to see the dogs runnin'
With a ring and a question
And my shivering voice is singing
Through a crack in the window
Na na na na na
I better go it alone
I better go it alone
Na na na na na

Down on the corner
See me standing
On a makeshift road
With a dust storm comin'
In a long black shadow
Pull a hammer from a coal mine
Down where your daddy was workin'
Comb my hair back
Strike a match on the bathroom wall
Where my number is written
Driving on the sidewalk
Lookin' backwards
And the sky is burning
In my rearview mirror
Na na na na na
I better go it alone
I better go it alone
Na na na na na

Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

I'm coming over
See you down at the station
By the lane
With my hands in my pocket
Jingling a wish coin
That I stole from a fountain
That was drownin'
All the cares in the world
When I get older
Climbing up on the back fence
Pointing to the dogs standin' firm
With a ring and a question
I'm ??
In a voice that was singing
Underneath the window
Na na na na na
I better go it alone
I better go it alone
Na na na na na
