Memorial Day (紀念日) (LP版) - Carly Simon

It should have been so soft this morning as we left

 

But the valley was infected

By a different kind of beauty

And the indians they knew it was a devil's sanctuary

 

Out of this unholy dawn a car

Came stirring up the sand

And a woman from a passion play

Held up the limousine that brought me all this way today

And I didn't need to turn around

So strong was the message

 

And the man who planned her life

Commanded all that followed

 

Well they bellowed and they hollered

And they threw each other down down in this valley

 

This cruel and lovely valley

Oh it should have been an alley

In some low down part of town

 

As lights came up there's no sun

And brandy splattered all over the ground

 

As this woman with her head held high

Yelled love and why

Oh why you're killing me oh follow me

 

As I watched safe and clean

From the frosted windows of limousine

 

Well they bellowed and they hollered

And they threw each other down

Down in this valley this cruel and lovely valley

Oh it sould have been an alley

In some low down part of town

 

Before he'd been so funny imagining the best

 

That he'd escaper recrimination

 

For abandoning the nest

 

He'd been joking and stoned

While he was entertaining me

 

But then turned and was stunned

By her panic and her misery

 

I was in the get away car

Giving him a chance to get away

Get away get away get away get away get away

 

And how the valley smoked

As he crossed route twenty five

 

With his cymbals and his shattered

Crown leaving all alone

His eyes fixed on the ground

 

And he didn't even turn around

So strong was the message

 

And he fell into the shallow sky

And was swallowed

 

Well they bellowed and they hollered

And they threw each other down

 

Down in this valley this cruel and lovely valley

Well it should have been an alley

In some low down part of town
