    There's a small cafe on the outskirts of town
    I'll be there when the sun goes down
    Where the roadside bends
    And it twists and turns
    Every new generation
    And I'll be praying to my higher self
    Don't let me down, keep my feet on the ground

    There's a roadside jam playin' on the edge of town
    In a town called Paradise near the ancient highway
    When the train whistle blows
    All the sadness that Hank Williams knows
    And the river flows
    Call them pagan streams and it spins and turns
    In a factory in a street called Bread in East Belfast
    Where Georgie knows best
    What it's like to be Daniel in the lion's den
    Got so many friends only most of the time

    When the grass is high and the rabbit runs
    Though it's talkin' to you and I
    And every new generation comes to pay
    The dues of the organ grinder jam
    And the grinder's switch of the sacrifice
    Everybody made to be rational with understanding
    And I'll be praying to my higher self
    Oh, don't let me down, keep my feet on the ground

    What about all the people living in the nightmare hurt
    That won't go away no matter how hard they try
    They've got to pay time and time again, time and time again
    I'll be praying to my higher self
    And I'll be standin' there, where the boats go by
    When the sun is sinking way over the hill
    On a Friday evening when the sun goes down
    On the outskirts of town, I wanna slip away
    I wanna slip away, got to get away
    And I'll be praying to my higher self
    Don't let me down, keep my feet on the ground, don't let me down

    You'll be cryin' again, you'll be cryin' again, you'll be cryin' again
    By the same wipe the teardrops from your eyes
    Have to slip away in the evening when the sun goes down
    Over the hill, with a sense of wonder
    Everything gonna be right on a Friday evening
    All the cars go by all along down
    The ancient highway
    And I'll be praying, I'll be praying to my higher self
    Don't let me down, keep my feet, keep my feet on the ground
    Keep my feet on the ground

    Travelling like a stranger in the night, all along the ancient highway
    Got you in my sights, got you on my mind
    I'll be praying in the evening when the sun goes down
    Over the mountain, got to get you right in my sight
    As the beams on the cars from the overpass
    On the ancient highway shine like diamonds in the night
    Like diamonds in the night
    I'll be praying to my higher self, to my higher self
    Don't let me down, don't let me down

    And you'll be standing there, while the boats go by
    While the boats go by on a Friday evening
    Shining your light, shining your light on a Friday evening
    Got to slip away, got to slip away down that ancient highway
    In a town called Paradise, in a town, in a town
    All along, all along that road, all along that road,
    All along that road with the trancelike vision

    I'll be praying to my higher self, don't let me down, don't let me down
    Keep my feet on the ground, keep my feet on the ground,
    Keep my feet on the ground
    Friday evening got to slip away
    Watching the view from a car from the overpass
    And we're driving down that ancient road
    Shining like diamonds in the night, oh diamonds in the night
    All along the ancient highway
    Got you in my sight, got you in my mind
    Got you in my arms and I'm praying, and I'm gonna pray
    I'm gonna pray, to my higher self, ah don't let me down
    Don't let me down, give me the fire, ah give me the fire
