Chelsea Boots

Album: Prodigal Son (2017)
  • Today I bought a pair of boots - Color black for my funeral suit - Oh I won't wreck them in the rain - I put them back into their box - And take them home again

    If I could change my style – I'd change my look - I'd change my face oh if I could - And change the date of my birth - Give me twenty years more - Man that would work

    Chelsea boots - Chelsea boots
    It's a long walk home when you got no roots
    Chelsea boots - Chelsea boots
    Wherever I go I'm coming back to you

    No, I don't wear no shoes with laces - No time to lose when I got to go places - They get undone and then I get untied - Until I trip over my thoughts so unsatisfied

    Chelsea boots - Chelsea boots
    It's a long walk home when you got no roots
    Chelsea boots - Chelsea boots
    Wherever I go I'm coming back to you

    Grandfather clocks they are passing me by - Writing my name in the trails of the sky - You know the strange reason why

    Chelsea boots - Chelsea boots
    It's a long walk home when you got no roots
    Chelsea boots - Chelsea boots
    Wherever I go I'm coming back to you

    Coming back coming back
    I'm coming back to you
    I'm coming back – I'm coming back

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"They're Playing My Song

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
