Lyrics:

I think of your lips like that first peach of summer
I been rollin like thunder at the thought of the taste
There's no point waiting to be happy in heaven
Cause if you're mistaken, that's a little too late

Gettin stoned out
Gettin loaned out
And I can't stay…

No I can't stay here
Give away no more tears
No, I can't spend one more cold night alone

Baby you're like the sunrise
Spreading light on a dark sky
And when I see your green eyes I'll be home

I drank and I smoked some, but I ain't escaping
I been locked in the basement watchin shadows on the wall
Dreamed of you last night when our song was playing
But the organ's fading, now, and that says it all

Gettin stoned out
Gettin loaned out
And I can't stay…

No I can't stay here
Give away no more tears
No, I can't spend one more cold night alone

Baby you're like the sunrise
Spreading light on a dark sky
And when I see your green eyes I'll be home

Now I hear the birds circling out on the coast road
Feel the warmth of your skin in the cold ocean air
I'm pale and I'm tired, but my mind is on fire
Dreaming of you every night I'm not there

You bet me
This horse can't run forever
Well babe, that bet is on

The midnight prince has finally left this town
Here's hoping that the law won't track him down
The smell of timber burning in the sky
We never had a chance to say goodbye

Now the desert wind blows through his hair, the valley sun's reflecting square
In the silver hood of our gypsy Dodge, back on the road to Shangri-La
