Marquee Moon

Play

I remember
How the darkness doubled
I recall
Lightning struck itself
I was listening
Listening to the rain
I was hearing
Hearing something else

Life in the hive puckered up my night
The kiss of death, the embrace of life
There i stand neath the marquee moon just waiting
Hesitating...
I ain't waiting

I spoke to a man
Down at the tracks
I asked him
How he don't go mad
He said "look here junior, don't you be so happy
And for heaven's sake, don't you be so sad"

Well a cadillac
It pulled out of the graveyard
Pulled up to me
All they said get in
Then the cadillac
It puttered back into the graveyard
And me
I got out again
