A Woman in Trouble

from Shelter In Place [EP] by Lilac Shadows



There’s flowers in your hair
silver, gold and grey
They're floating down the river in the California haze
You’re echoing from room to room
Your limbs will twist and dance to the sound of some fine tune

Lift me up high so I can breathe
The laughter is faint, but the pain is real

There’s light behind the door still glowing red and white
You’re tucked inside the orbit of a slowly dying sun
The future tense will only break your heart
A miracle of machine and coiled chrome

Lift me up high so I can breathe
There’s death in the air, and blood in my teeth

When the flood lights open, and the picture begins
All the glowing faces will turn their eyes to you
Will you dissolve into the evening, carried off again
Will you speak your last devotion, and fade into the wind


from Shelter In Place [EP], released May 4, 2021
