Chilled to the bone and five miles to home
I’m messing in the dark and feelin’ all alone
I’ve got ice in my fire got the heat in my wire
inject a little heat, I’m burnin’ up the tires

Sidewalking, sidewalking, sidewalking, sidewalking

Talking like I’m on and I’m the only one
I’m making like I’m done and staring like a gun
and I gotta get a call and I gotta get a ride
gonna get a car got Jesus on my side

Sidewalking, sidewalking, sidewalking, sidewalking
Messing in the dark and walking all alone
alone in the streets and I know just where I’m goin’

Sidewalking, sidewalking
Chilled to the bone, chilled to the bone
hot wired heat and all the way home
