Weightless Again

We stopped for coffee in the Redwood forest
Giant dripping leaves
Spoons of powdered cream
I wanted to kiss you, but wasn't sure how
Like those indians
Lost in the rainforest
Forced to drag burning wood wherever they went
They had all forgotten
How to start a fire

Chorus This is why people OD on pills
And jump from the Golden Gate Bridge
Anything to feel weightless again

Those poor, lost indians-when the white men found them
Most died of TB
The rest went insane
In our motel room you're drinking Slice and gin
Reading Moby Dick
On the other bed
Remember the first time we slept together?
You said it felt like
When you learned to float
