lyrics

We would walk through the soft summer nights,
The air damp from the firefly moon.
And through the smoke of your rolled Lucky Strike,
Came the intoxicating sound of a Gershwin tune.

Taller still is the grass from the fields,
Of the farm where your old daddy died.
But we laid there so long, I could swear we were wrong,
When the night turned on its brighter side.
The night turned on its brighter side.

I want you F. Scott,
To be my lover.
Since I kissed your mouth,
On the back of the cover.
Turn the tick-tocks,
Back to another
Time when you were on this side of paradise.

I would laugh with my hair pulled back,
Through your "Dice, Brass Knuckles, & Guitar."
And when wintertime came, we'd sing Zelda's refrain
From the jukebox in the wood-paneled bar.
The jukebox in the wood-paneled bar.

I want you F. Scott,
To be my lover.
Since I kissed your mouth,
On the back of the cover.
Turn the tick-tocks,
Back to another
Time when you were on this side of paradise.

I would let you draw the curtains back,
And let the debutantes & dealers watch us take a nap.
Shake the ruffles from your pillow,
Let you give me a smack.
I'd waive my hopeless aspirations,
Just to be on your vacation,
Sign the papers at the station,
Taking too much medication,
Waiving all our moderation,
For ever-permanent elation.
I want you....

F. Scott,
To be my lover.
Since I kissed your mouth,
On the back of the cover.
Turn the tick-tocks,
Back to another
Time when you were on this side of paradise.

HEY!
