I think the chorus goes:

"And we were wrong, we were wrong about everything
Wild like a hurricane, inside her arms
And I don't where it all went cold
Broken down shaking on the side of the road
They always told me there was _____ (thorns?) inside my room, yeah
Ah, once upon a time on a summer night high on the blues" (high with you?)

If the recording of this song lives up to the live versions released so far then it is one of the best songs of this album cycle.

Taking eagles chorus, i listened to the videos a few times and wrote down what i think all of the lyrics are, few lines missing here and there i couldn't make out. If anyone has any corrections send 'em over Smile

I remember when, the night you said your head caved in
the first time i heard _____
we were living proof leaning up against the roof
???????


way back then, we were all right out of our heads
_____ georgia was sleeping

And we were wrong, we were wrong about everything
Wild like a hurricane, inside her arms
And I don't where it all went cold
Broken down shaking on the side of the road
They always told me there was thorns inside my room, yeah
Ah, once upon a time on a summer night high on the blues

then she came
she hid from the heavy rain it didnt matter
and that is why, she let the sleeping dogs lie lie lie
baby here in the night we can live forever

way back then we never ever went to bed
we just stayed up all night to see what would happen

And we were wrong, we were wrong about everything
Wild like a hurricane, inside her arms
And I don't where it all went cold
Broken down shaking on the side of the road
They always told me there was thorns inside my room, yeah
Ah, once upon a time on a summer night high on the blues

so have you seen her down by the water driving us crazy
so have you seen her down by the water in the heat of june

And we were wrong, we were wrong about everything
Wild like a hurricane, inside her arms
And I don't where it all went cold
Broken down shaking on the side of the road
They always told me there was thorns inside my room, yeah

I must have dreamed you up inside my head
honey i remember everything
every night _______________
you dont know you dont know how it feels to be me
i was born with rain inside my shoes
oh once upon a time on a summer night high on blues
oh once upon a time on a summer night high on blues

From the videos I've watched I have a feeling the first line might be "I remember when, the night you said your head caved in"

and in the bridge I think he said "So have you seen her, down by the water" both times, not "whole lotta woman"

Here's an updated stab at the lyrics after listening to the studio version

I remember when Maggie said your head caved in
The first time we heard "Mad Dogs and Englishmen"
We laid on the hood feeling absolutely bulletproof
Ah but I was a ghost that you were reliving

Way back then we were gone right out of our heads
But August was red hot and Georgia was steamin'

We were all revved up about everything
Wild like a hurricane inside her arms
I don't know when it all went cold
Broken down, shaking by the side of the road
They always told me there were storms inside my room
Once upon a time on a summer night high on the blues

Then she came from a million miles away
She hid from the heavy rain deep in Manhattan
But now it's quiet, let the sleeping dogs lie tonight
Maybe you and I we can live forever

Way back then we never ever went to bed
We just stayed up all night to see what would happen

We were all revved up about everything
Wild like a hurricane inside her arms
I don't know when it all went cold
Broken down, shaking on the side of the road
They always told me there were storms inside my room
Once upon a time on a summer night high on the blues

So have you seen her down by the water
Driving us crazy in the half black moon
So have you seen her float on the water
In the heat of June

We were all revved up about everything
Wild like a hurricane inside her arms
I can't be sure if it was more or just some spell we were under
I must have dreamed you up inside my room
Oh and honey I remember everything
With a memory wide as a country mile
You don't know, you don't know how it feels to be me
I was born with rain inside my shoes
Once upon a time on a summer night high on the blues
Once upon a time on a summer night high on the blues

One more song that is related to a red hot August love affair, like Stray Paper and Blue Dahlia.

Quote :
And underneath the tyranny of august and her sons,
Who sent fire from their fingertips in the holy vow of a teenage kiss.
Now we're much too old for this,
And I don't feel those kinds of things.

Quote :
What a hot and sultry summer,
The steam just slides up off them streets
You gotta stay inside and wait for the night,
And then come on over and see me
