The voices in my head are shadows, shadows
She comes to me to tell me what they're after
Says, "It ain't the end boy, but you best be careful, careful.
Might catch your tail end in a circle, circle."
The ocean how she moves in ripples, ripples
In flashing lights I swear she was an old film
Then the color bleeds and she becomes an angel, angel
Calls out to me like a siren to a scoundrel
I say "Come on, child"
And I say "Come on, child"

The blanket where she hides by virgin lights
Look to the sea, where the cotton hits the turnpike
Staring at her needs, but I don't have the words right, words right
If up to me might make a turn right, turn right
Lost another one, but she still smiles, smiles
Black lovin' eyes and a stare that sees for miles
Says she wants to be, oh wants to stay a child, child
And wonder why we ever, ever have to die
And I say, "Come on, child"
And I say, "Come on, child"

With just a touch I'm gone and carried
Another time where our palms share the same line
The accent of a kiss, whispers were married
It's either love, or just the sun in my eyes
And I say, "Come on child."
And I say, "Come on child."
La la la la la
