Lyrics

It's Tuesday
It's getting late
The lights on ??? Street fade like
Just like embers

And she, yeah, she twirls
Annoys the world
January's girl never seemed farther
Yeah, January's girl
Is on the other side of the world from me

She tells me that she's going to be
A mother of three, a provider
What a liar; it's just temporary
The cracks of her voice break like
Just like plaster

January's girl is on the other side of the world from me
Oh, January's girl,
She's where I would rather be

Yeah, oh, she twirls
And she annoys the world
January's girl never seemed farther
Yeah, January's girl,
She's on the other side of the world from me
January's girl is where I'd rather be

It's Tuesday
It's getting late
The lights on ??? St. fade like embers
And she twirls
She annoys the world
But January's girl never seemed finer
