Sparks

Words and Music by Raccoon

As recorded on White Horse Ranch Sessions

 

 

I – See – Sparks

Comin' from the radio tower

And it looks like a meteor shower

They’re comin' from the radio tower

 

Out on the crystal highway where me and my baby used to run

Stands a lonely, broken man with a sawed off 12-gauge shotgun

Singin', “What can you do to change the future?

What can you do to change the past?

What can you do to change the future?

Where can you find the things that…?”

 

I – See – Sparks

Comin' from the radio tower

And it looks like a meteor shower

They’re comin' from the radio tower

 

Out on the crystal highway where me and baby used to run

Stands a lonely, broken man with a sawed off 12-gauge shotgun

Singin', “I was born a wild child – And I was born a wild child

I didn’t sell my soul to rock and roll

I didn’t sell my soul to rock and roll

Cuz I was born a wild child – And I was born a wild child

I didn’t sell my soul to rock and roll

I didn’t sell my soul to rock and roll”

 

And I can’t stay this way forever – Something’s got to change

I can’t stay this way forever or they’re gonna come and take away my brain

 

And I love you – And I love you

I need you and I love you

 

Somebody turn down the power

The pain comes as no surprise

Somebody turn down the power

Sparks are fallin' in my

 

I – See – Sparks

Comin' from the radio tower

And it looks like a meteor shower

They’re comin' from the radio tower
