Mary in red
By the pool on a humid day
Where the summer sky dissolves in
Storm clouds on the horizon
The dark grey blue horizon

Midnight Orleans
There’s a ball game across the street
And the porch light’s on and you still hear
Swimmers in the Atlantic
Yeah, I miss the Atlantic

But I love the road
To feel the breezes blow
And though the tides were shifting
Was only paying dues
Midnight alone
Cicadas sing out the bay window
And though the clouds are collecting
It’s only passing through

I get older
It’s always
Not to know when
The debts are sinking under the island
Until then keep abiding

Summer ends
Before you know it
A storm is blowing in
Oh a lifetime is gone
And you’ve been south too long

So I love the road
To feel the breezes blow
And though the nights are restless
I’m only missing you
Oh lazy eyes
Find the road in the fading light
And though the clouds are lifting
I’m only passing through
Oh how I’m hoping
One day to meet up
Out of the blue
