Salinas Lyrics

04 Salinas

 

I am from Salinas where the women go forever

And they never ever stop to ask why

My mother was a savior of six foot of bad behavior

With long blond curly hair down to her thigh

 

Oh my mother

Oh my friends

Ask the angels "Will I ever see heaven again "

 

Late into the evening

They would take each other screaming

Looking darkly to the back of her eye

 

The careless beast was bleating

That the air behind was breathing

That they mustn't ever look up to the sky

 

There are no answers

There are found

Ask the angels "Am I heaven-bound "

 

Put it down to me

I who speak awkwardly

Any word if it is heard

Is not intended to be

Not for him not for her

Not for them and not for me

 

Oh but that gun will turn before the sun

Starts to burn understand

 

 

When the clouds roll in we start playing for our sins

With a gun in my hand and my sun at my shoulder

Believe I will run before that boy gets older

 

Oh and that gun will turn

Before the sun starts to burn understand

 

Oh and that gun will turn

Before the sun starts to burn understand

 

I am from Salinas where the women go forever

And they never ever stop to ask why

My mother she's a savior of six foot of bad behavior

With long blond curly hair down to her thigh

 

Oh my mother

Oh my friends

Ask the angels "Will I ever see heaven again "

"Will I ever see heaven again "

"Will I ever see heaven again "

 

Punish them all for they speak too much

 

Hate the world for what it did to us

 

 

Will I ever see heaven again
