lyrics

1pm by the shadows
I sit and watch the clouds pass by
And though I hope to be where you're going
I know I can't be where you've been
It's always good to get away
We hoist the jib up out on the lake
And soon the moon comes out
The water's still from where we lay

And if it's looking like the rain might come and pour upon your cabin
Just remember this is where you come to see the sun and
Leave your conscience for days
They call it "The Flashlight Blues"
Because no one wants to play

Where I am, I'm never going tomorrow
And though I've said it before
Next year, I'll be home again

"Always good"
That's what they say now, out on the lake now
And if you can't find the castle in the clouds
Then you might as well climb Major
Just make it up and down in an hour

Bounce a lot, Shakers, I'm undampening a coma
Round and round yourself will only lead you home and
Leave your conscience for days
Oh well they call it "The Flashlight Blues"
Because no one wants to play

Where I am, I'm never going tomorrow
And though I've said it before
Next year, I'll be home again

Oh Marianne, why don't you come to my city
Come to my town
Follow my plan
Why don't you come into my town
Why don't you come and run around
Why don't you come in to commandeer my ground
Oh 'cause next year I'll be home again
To leave my conscience for days
Oh well they call it "The Flashlight Blues"
Because no one wants to play

Oh Marianne, why don't you come to my city
Come to my town
Oh Marianne, why don't you come to my city
Come to my town
Oh Marianne, come to my town
Come to my city, come to my city, Marianne
Oh, sweet Marianne, come to my town
Come to my city, come to my city, Marianne
Oh Marianne, come to my town
Oh come to my city, come to my city, Marianne
Oh Marianne, come to my town
Come to my city, come to my city and
Leave your conscience for days
'cause next year I'll be home again
