Velvet Elvis

lyrics & music by Thom Bowers

© 1998, 2001 Sucherman Bros Records all rights reserved.

it's been a couple of weeks since it all went down
I've been talking to ghosts, walking the town
I want to give it a rest
my world is a postcard, "wish you were here"
and even though I have nothing to fear
these times are not my best

I'm an altered state but I can walk this street
stranger things have happened to me

summer came a little late this year
fortune and glory singing in my ear
"you can take your time"
but now when I talk it feels like a job
just to pay old debts while life strings me along
in a dustbowl that isn't even mine

at night I dream of wide open space
I change the channel and the signal fades away

It's just another day with my velvet elvis
to keep me warm in my plastic pool
it's just another way to keep my head above water
it's just another night walking home alone
pretending I'm a regular joe
but I can see the world and I can see forever

it's been a couple of weeks since it all went down
watching the ghosts take over this town
they spin around in my head

but it's all just smoke
a shot in the breeze
good cops, bad cops, and guys like me
we're free
but I don't want to be

it's just another day with my velvet elvis
maybe I should have stayed in school
I've gotta find a way to keep my head above water
it's just another night, walk the cow road alone
fortune and glory tke me home
I can see the world and I can see forever
