lyrics

BF Pinkerton


You left the border town in May
Suitcases full of all the things you had to say
Now it’s November and the Joshua trees are bare
Snow instead of sand
Traces of you were planted everywhere

Petals in her hand


Your children are makin’ up their beds
Visions of sugar plums and fairies in their heads
She’s lookin’ on as all the ships come in, waitin’ for that day
Knowin’ that you’ll return to love her once again

But you’re gone to stay.


She’s lookin’ on as all the ships come in, waitin’ for that day
Knowin’ that you’ll return to love her once again
But you’re gone to stay
You’re gone to stay
You’re gone to stay.
