ASTORIA

White house at the edge of town,

Mama said that’s where the ghosts live now.

Don’t play and you won’t get burned,

If you don’t touch will the candle still burn?

 

Rode by on my bike today,

Looked in the window of the run down place.

In a corner in the back of the room,

She whispered to me in a luminous tune.

 

I’ll keep you locked, locked inside my mind,

I’ll keep you locked.

I get locked inside my mind,

Inside my mind.

 

Halloween night I dressed in black,

Knocked on the window of the door in back.

Nobody answered so I walked away,

I didn’t leave alone when I left that place.

 

Darling don’t you leave me, leave me here inside my own.

I get locked inside my mind without you.

Darling don’t you leave me, leave me here just flesh and bone.

I get locked inside my mind just thinking about you.

Thinking about you.
