Various Artists - Smoke Signals

[Verse 1]
I went with you to the place you grew up
And we spent a week in the cold
Just long enough to Walden it with you
Any longer, it would've got old
Singing "Ace of Spades" when Lemmy died
But nothing's changed, LA's alright
I'm sleeping in my bed again
And getting in my head and then
Walk around the reservoir
[Chorus]
And you
You must've been waiting for me
Sending smoke signals
Pelicans circling
Burning trash out on the beach

[Verse 2]
And one of your eyes is always half-shut
Something happened when you were a kid
I didn't know you then and I will never understand
Why it feels like I did
"How Soon Is Now" in an eighties sedan
You slept inside it because your dad
Lived in a campground in the back of a van
You said that song will creep you out until you're dead

[Chorus]
And you
You must've been looking for me
Sending smoke signals
Pelicans circling
Burning trash out on the beach

[Verse 3]
And I want to live at the Holiday Inn
Where someone else makes the bed
We'll watch TV whilst the lights on the street
Put all the stars to death
It's been on my mind since Bowie died
Just checking out to hide from life
And all of our problems, yeah, I'm gonna solve them
With you riding shotgun
Speeding 'cause fuck the cops
You might also like[Chorus]
And you
You must have been looking for me
Sending smoke signals
Pelicans circling
Burning trash out on the beach

[Verse 4]
I buried a hatchet, it's coming up lavender
The future's unwritten, the past is a corridor
I'm at the exit, looking back through the hall
You are anonymous, I am a concrete wall

[Outro]
Hmm, da da da
