lyrics

Wild Aurora


we met upon the silver road

a million miles out from my home

she told me she was rock and roll

i told her I was broken soul

she said honey, can't you see I know ?



she didn't wear no diamond ring

I didn't ask her anything

just to tell me all her pain

all her joys and back again



she left before the lights came down

one foot always in tomorrow's town

i felt like she had took away

a loving part of me that day

i told her so



does he know

shes a wild aurora burning in our midst?

does he treat her like

the loving angel the weeping world knows she is?

when she pours her drink too long

can he lay her easy down

with a simple loving song?



we crossed again down Florence way

her smile had all but run away

how’d you forget to show her teeth

and all your hiding underneath?

she said honey, I can see you know



she calls me daddy with a bourbon grin

calls me baby when she's drinking gin

when she doesn't drink at all

weeks go by and she don’t call



does he know

shes a wild aurora burning in our midst?

does he treat her like

the loving angel the weeping world knows she is?

when she pours her drink too long

can he lay her easy down

with a simple loving song?



they tell me that this life is long

and no one knows what's going on

except the rags of growin old

oldest story can’t be sold







lord I know

she’s a wild aurora burning in our midst

i would treat her like

the loving angel the weeping world knows she is

when she pours her drink a little long

I could lay her easy down

with a simple loving song
