Summerland

Album: Sparkle And Fade (1995)
  • Let's just drive your car
    We could drive all day
    Let's just get the hell away from here

    For I am sick again
    Just plain sick to death
    Of the sound of my own voice
    We could leave behind
    Another wasted year
    Just get some cheap red wine

    And just go flying
    We could do the things
    All the things you wanted to
    No one cares about us anyway
    I think I lost my smile
    I think you lost yours too
    We have lost the power to make each other laugh

    Let's just leave this place
    And go to Summerland
    Just a name on the map
    Sounds like heaven to me

    We could find a town,
    Be just how we want to be
    No one here really cares about us anyway
    We could find a place,
    Make it what we want it to be
    No one really gives a fuck about us anyway
    We could live
    Live just like we want to live
    No one here really cares about us anyway
    We could be

    Everything we want to be
    We could get lost in the Fall
    Glimmer Sparkle and Fade
    The Sparkle and Fade
    Fall Glimmer Sparkle and Fade

    Forget about our jobs at the record store
    Forget about all the losers that we know
    Forget about all the memories that keep you down
    Forget about them

    We could lose them in the
    Sparkle and Fade
    We could leave them behind
    In the Sparkle and Fade
    Yeah Sparkle and Fade
