Old Coast Road

The Church

Sun coming down on my shoulder
Moon going down in the sea
I knew nothing could hold her
It took everything from me

We drove into the salt water
A clear sweet shadow lit out
Rolled in stolen Corona
The highway was drowning her out

And then she told me
Don't be afraid of yourself
But when she rolled my dice
That double six was for someone else

I asked if it was over
I mask over my hate
Sadder, well I could control her
Down to her matter late

And then she told me
You've only got today
But when I asked for another
She looked at me and looked away

And then she showed me the menace in her past
And then she showed me another way
And then she owed me everything
But she couldn't stay

Sun coming down on the shoulder
Moon coming up from the sea
Days pass from warmer to colder
Return like a child unto me

And then she told me
Don't be afraid of yourself
And then she told me
You only got today
And then she told me
You'll never be alone
But on that Old Coast Road
When I woke up there was no one home
