lyrics

Ghosts Of California

I told my lover, I said to her in kind
She deserved better, leave them tears behind
Free to do anything, now it's your turn
see the world in all it's rags ,see it in it's fur
here's to you my cherry bomb, here's to you my queen
we went well together like two fools up on the screen
Get yourself a dandy who's nothing like me
an elusive man of mystery, kind king of intrigue

Ghosts of California
Ghosts of what I can afford you
Ghosts of California

If you love somebody then let them go
whoever said that doesn't fucking know
a dusty, old cliche wades in the hours of yearning
thirsty, hearted lover sees no sign of her returning
my mind is ticking from the red blood vine
raindrops on the metal roof drum out a second line
Steve McQueen, the father, the one I never knew
stands amongst the shadows in the room I laid with you

Ghosts of California
Ghosts of what I can afford you
Ghosts of California

Wing walker baby on the Ghost of California
she's eyeing the flyer from the Rose of Pretoria
the great Ethel Dare and the Michigan horizon
she don't give a damn she don't give a reason
for no safety line no parachute and no net to catch her
there is no past there is no future
I see her body bathing naked in a porcelain tub
I shudder to remember I lift my head up

Ghosts of California
