  • Back then I often found myself
    Driving on the road at night
    And the radio was broadcasting the ocean
    Warm late spring wind whips through my hair
    I am right here, but I wanna be there
    And no one in this world is gonna stop me

    Pale green ghosts at the end of May
    Soldiers of this black highway
    Helping me to know my place
    Pale green ghosts, must take great care
    Release themselves into the air
    Reminding me that I must be aware

    At 25 and 36 to Boulder, I was getting warm
    But now I'm getting colder
    And I stomp my feet, demanding like a child
    I hope you get everything you wanted boy
    I hope you conquer the world and turn it into your toy
    But don't come crying when you're forced to learn the truth

    [Repeat x2]
    Pale green ghosts at the end of May
    Soldiers of this black highway
    Helping me to know my place
    Pale green ghosts, must take great care
    Release themselves into the air
    Reminding me that I must be aware Writer/s: BIRGIR THORARINSSON, JOHN GRANT
