lyrics

A cigarette won't mean much
Until you get one aching touch
Like some smoke on fingertips
In this town the birds won't eat the sunflower seeds
The otherside of the fance is green
And we all number our good deeds

(CHORUS) Oh Douglas, Douglas my dear, I'm here
Wiith those books and those walks
And those fears and blue rocks from the beach
And the trees
Oh 'cuz you'd tell me bout the light then leave
Yeah you'd grab my arm, you'd tug my sleeve
Oh and now you're gone

Now your son and I are fine
We're waltzing through that old grape vine
We're baffled, speechless in the face of time
We've got that California kind of ease
We're waltzing through the redwood trees
We're talking slow, we're talking sweet.

(CHORUS)
