Hair blowing in the hot wind
Time hanging from a clothes pin
There's no sorrow that the sun's not gonna help

 Smell the leather of your new car
 Drive through the desert after night fall
 Sleep on the shoulder keep the stars all to ourselves 

The kinda love that makes my back hurt
 Wearing nothing but a t-shirt
She's turning over on a mattress made of air

I close my eyes I see a stair case
 Leading upwards into blank space
All of creation makes a sound too soft to hear

So I remain between her legs
 Sheltered from all my fears  While bikers glide by highway shrines
 Where pilgrims disappear 

I know that trouble's been your good friend 
Keep you company on the weekends 
Keep you company even once your mind was made

Said it's over and it's finished 
Now a headache is all you're left with
We're no different I got debts I'd like to pay

We should move to Sausalito 
Living's easy on a house boat
Let the ocean rock us back and forth to sleep 

In the morning with the sunrise 
Look in the water see the blue sky
As if heaven has been laid there at our feet

So we remain between these waves
 Sheltered for all our years  While bikers glide by highway shrines
 Where pilgrims disappear 

 Where time takes icebergs
 Where fields burn westward  Where pilgrims disappear
