Home demo version 3

I act like I don't remember, Mary acts like she don't care
[Recording stops and then resumes]
I remember running wild in her brother's car
Her body tan, tan and dripping wet down at the reservoir
The plan we made, baby, that all fell through
We paint, we painted ourselves too
We painted ourselves a dream we couldn't live up to

Baby all those dreams, they haunt me, haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie that don't come true or is it something worse
Is it something true that don't ever come
Just makes you feel old inside, baby when, baby when you're young
So in those woods I'd lie awake just to feel every breath that my baby'd take
Through the time

Angelyne, I'm running to you, I'm running to you
Angelyne, you run the wire, but you walk the line
Da da da da da da da, da da da to you, I'm running to you

One, two
Two, three

An, hmm hmmm, hmmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm hmmm, hmm hmm
Hmm, hmm hmmm, hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm hmm, hmmm hmm
La la la la la la
