lyrics

She sings alone and brings the kinda light to wash your sorrow
She waits for many things, including lies
What can she do, what can she do

She wants to mess so bad
She wants to be held and be had
She goes to church alone
For love on Sunday
What will she do, what will she do

Roads they cross is wide
Comrades in arms
St Christopher guides them capturing the flag
A-walking in in-line
Those they left behind
St Tristan for those capturing the flag

Now many times she passes
Plans so filled with pale tomorrows
Soldiers bring back lies, instead of lives
What can you do, what can you do

Roads they cross is wide
Comrades in arms
St Christopher guides them capturing the flag
A-walking in in-line
Those they left behind
St Tristan for those capturing the flag

She once had a boy
She once had a husband too
She once had a son
She once had a husband too

They take them from the ground, shine them a light
Pass them in review, tell them that was life
What could they do, what could they do

Roads they cross is wide
Comrades to arms
St Christopher guides them capturing the flag
A-walking in in-line
Those they left behind
St Tristan for those capturing the flag

Crossing Byrds/Buffalo Springfield electric guitars and harmonies with a Sex Pistols/Ramones rhythm section was their idea and their legacy. Their signature songs Looking For Lewis And Clark and I Had A Dream have never left the airwaves. ... more
