in the afternoon oh the sun peeks through this quiet room and i think of you i keep going back to the well i keep going back to the well back to golden hill i keep going back to the well i keep going back to what i dwell what i dwell and dwell on getting over you i wrote a song or two or three or four or five or six or more i keep going back to the well i keep going back to the well back to golden hill i keep going back to the well i keep going back to what i dwell what i dwell and dwell on i climb golden hill

in the middle of the night a light wakes you, she's calling your phone underneath a pile of clothes it glows, trembles, steadily groans the ceiling is a kaleidoscope focusing you don't have to feel a thing if you don't want to feel a thing if you don't want to feel anything if you don't want to feel if you don't return her calls at all, soon boy you'll be alone now every single day you pray 'please god make me a stone' the ceiling is a slide carousel focusing you don't have to feel a thing if you don't want to feel anything if you don't want to feel anything if you don't want to feel if you don’t return her calls at all, soon boy you’ll be alone

the sunrise hits her in the face there are no drapes inside the huge half-finished house she rents with 5 or 6 roommates or is it 8? sometimes its hard to keep it straight she lives by san diego state she has no reason left to stay office lights illuminate her face she comes in late through the fire exit the boss is on a coffee break that's lasted several years playing desktop video games she lives by san diego state she has no reason left to stay she dreams of moving to LA in one more day she'll be twenty-eight headlights illuminate her face she makes her way to a north park party bros with forties and duct tape another drinking game with a really stupid name she lives by san diego state she has no reason left to stay she dreams of moving to LA she dreams of moving to LA

are you happy now, nearly six months to the day i left golden hill? i suspect you never felt at home while i was there the streets shine brighter without me the streets shine brighter without me i saw the hillside glimmering in the sunlight glimmering in the sunlight as i drove away when you walk outside wandering in the sunlight do you feel anything except a sunny day? i was nursing a beer with a handful of your friends back in golden hill and you seemed pissed like someone in the room did not belong you laugh much harder without me you laugh much harder without me are you happy now, nearly six months to the day i left?

it's late i'm thinking of something that connie used to say i swear that i can hear it when the railroad runs outside my window where san fernando hums it's late i'm thinking of something that connie used to say i swear that i can hear it when the dryer runs outside my window i hear the lost boys drunk when i was medicated i took her advice when i was medicated

rolling the window down i sigh i'm exiting interstate five balboa, north park, normal heights, are crowding around me the city’s alive every time i see the sign that leads to pershing drive it is whispering to me and every time i wander down to hamilton's at night oh it is whispering to me now 'stay awhile' a lover a neighborhood combine over time the boundaries bleed and echoes of happiness and loss anthropomorphize the buildings and streets every time i see the sign that leads to pershing drive it is whispering to me and every time i wander down to hamilton's at night oh it is whispering to me now but sometimes it shouts so loud when i'm wide awake on a fold out couch

posted up on the east side you ever thought about the feature film by the spice girls and how it holds up now? well if you like dumb dance moves i think i know a few getting weird in the front bar i think i'm in love with you by the way i can’t look away you say you say 'let's call it a night' you’re too pretty to be out this late hey i'm afraid i can't concentrate you say you say you say 'lets call it a night' get billy joel on the jukebox and piss the bar flies off scenes from an italian restaurant: that shit's like nine hours long and if you like dumb pop songs i think i wrote a few let's get weird in the front bar i'm so in love with you by the way i ran out of change you say you say 'let's call it a night' you’re too pretty to be out this late hey i'm afraid i can't walk straight you say you say you say you say 'call it a night, let's call it a night' by the way you just touched my leg you say you say 'let's call it a night' you're so pretty when you're lit this way and i'm afraid i can't think straight you say you say you say 'let's call it a night'

you say some girls they go for the ocean you say some girls they go for the moon oh my darling you belong to the ocean but the only one i'm longing for is you take a ride down to old coronado there the salt air it'll make you swoon oh my darling you belong to the ocean but the only one i'm longing for is you moon and sea have gravities that pull each other constantly from miles and miles away like lovers long estranged hollywood is a hell of a city where the skyline stretches far from view but my darling i can't see the ocean the movie stars and cocktail bars oh none of it will do oh the only one i'm longing for is you oh the only one i'm longing for is you
