Harbor Lights

from by Mount Peru

lyrics

Did you ever get so high that you remember being born
And the way the line went dead on that cold December morn
Do you remember how it felt to find you’d become someone else
In some abandoned bungalow so unfamiliar

Oooh, well you never really cared about me anyway
Oooh, now did you?

Now every good shot in the arm is like a shot across the bow
Of some marauding pirate ship ain’t no more buccaneering now
Do you remember where you were when they shut the pipeline down
And the way your blood ran cold into the river

Oooh, and it’s such a pleasant way to pass the time away
Oooh, and when I see you come in I should run the other way
Oooh, and I been tryin’ just to find another way to say

All this time
You were right
About those harbor lights
