Wild Pink – The Shining But Tropical Lyrics

The Shining But Tropical Lyrics by Wild Pink

Back when your mind was wild you
Hallucinated, you were terrified
With the storm that was coming your way
The plan was to float away
Face down
In the San Francisco Bay
On a clear blue day

Where from way up high the coast is a crisp line
And all the microscopic life like a billion little lights
Become a single living thing
All beginning from a single cell
And now I can’t unring the bell

And I want to remember every single thing
Just not who I used to be
Picked your poison with the best of them
Now you slap their question from your face

You want peace you want love
You deserve that much

Weeping through the show about space
Your lily hand was pressed to the screen
You were free but you were stuck for years
You could sing but you had nothing to say

You want peace you want love
You deserve that much
