and now we sing

motel blues

Sea in my hair.
Gasoline in my veins.
The disease got me deep
in my bones,
since I left you alone.

Rain in the east.
And there’s rain in the west.
And there’s rain in my lashes
like stones,
since I left you alone.

And I drive.
I drive to forget I’m alive.

Lover, oh lover,
I don’t want another.
I’m sorry I left you alone.
