Track Name: Song For Melanie Daniels (1996)
SONG FOR MELANIE DANIELS

little rich girl, young and pretty
driving North away from the city
sixty miles to look for love
with the open sky above
you know what you want and you get your way
sailing out across the bay
you and your cage, almost there
and there’s something in the air

so tell me, what are you thinking now?
all this trouble…is it worth a try?
are you getting what you bargained for
underneath the sky?

hear the screaming in the skies
there’s a man with empty eyes
another day in that green dress
you’re the damsel in distress
watching that powerline, children cry
light a smoke and stay inside
you’re so beautiful, you’re so fair
even when you’re scared
