Testo della canzone The Ledge 404 dei Replacements
Album: Pleased To Meet Me
All eyes look up to me
high above the filthy streets.
Heed no bullhorn when it calls.
Watch me fly and die. Watch me fall.

I’m the boy they can’t ignore,
for the first time in my life, I’m sure.
All the love sent up high to pledge
won’t reach the ledge.

Wind blows cold from the west.
I smell coffee, I smell doughnuts on their breaths.
A girl that I knew once years ago
is tryin’ to be reached on the phone.

I’m the boy she can’t ignore,
for the first time in my life, I’m sure.
All the love sent up high to pledge…

(Repeat)

Priest kneels silent, all is still.
Policeman reaches from the sill.
Watch him, watch him try his best.
There’ll be no medal pinned to his chest.

I’m the boy they couldn’t ignore,
for the first time in my life, I’m sure.

(Repeat)

I’m the boy for the last time in my life.

All the love that they pledge
for the last time will not reach the ledge
