A New Hope

Album: Dude Ranch (1997)
  • I've got her in my head
    At night when I go to bed
    And I know it sounds lame, but
    She's the girl of my dreams

    And of course I'd do anything for her
    I'd search the moons of Endor
    I'd even walk naked through
    The deserts of Tatooine

    Princess Leia, where are you tonight?
    And who's laying there by your side?
    Every night I fall asleep with you
    And I wake up alone

    And even though I'm not as cool as Han
    I still want to be your man
    You're exactly the kind of
    Alderranian that I need

    But when you were available, I was
    Drinking Colt 45's with Lando
    I was hanging out in the cantina
    On Mos Eisley

    Princess Leia, where are you tonight?
    And who's laying there by your side?
    Every night I fall asleep with you
    And I wake up alone

    Princess Leia
    Princess Leia

    Princess Leia, where are you tonight?
    And who's laying there by your side?
    Every night I fall asleep with you
    And I wake up alone Writer/s: TOM DELONGE, MARK HOPPUS, SCOTT RAYNOR
