lyrics

Marina Queen Dani, copper hair flowing free.
She's lying out in the sand, she's sneaking beers on the beach.
I found her working all day in a salon by the see.
I pass by it everyday, it's still a little bit hard for me.

The car door slams and now we hide from the rain.
West Hollywood lights her face up, we escape through these lanes.
She always needed some getting those stars in her eyes that'd keep her up through the night while I was laying there by here side.

If we're not coming back together, I'm not coming back for you.

The Marina Queen's got all the boys staring.

In her high-waisted shorts she dances up the front steps.
Her long legs shine just like beacons, now I'll never rest
tracing the lines upon her from the soft desert sun
that was kissing her skin while I was wishing to be the one.

When I was coming up to get you, yeah, you never really knew
that there was something in the night that gave it all away to you.
Turn the engine over and the paint will turn to gold,
we've got to take this city back before we get too old.

The Marina Queen's got all the boys staring.

Oh, lately I've been a ghost, but I'm the one that's always feeling haunted.

The snow hugs the street cause it's the only thing that loves this town.
The State St. bars are filled with broken dreams of the kids who've been let down.
The suburban prophets abandon their plans to the weekend warrior demands.
It's a last call induced death sentence to a night that never had a chance.
Under an empty grey sky the swirling snow and I, yeah, we're gonna dance.
Tonight, I've got to win this fight.
Cause I've seen this town eat living saints alive, and I'm not gonna let it keep me down this time.
