On the edge of the world out in the night darkness on a path of dusty brush and eucalyptus there’s tall grass moving in the wind on the edge of a cliff over water I could die in The sun’s hanging low over the ocean sand in my hair cool sand under my feet pink clouds and the moon coming out to join me and the heart beat rhythm of your gold soul, beating California, Carolina it’s a dry summer again I miss you over me rain falling, soft and warm in bed High-beams sweep around edge of the mountain etching out in light some line of the hills wrapped up with a blanket around waves on the rocks below you were my abalone boy the heart beat rhythm of your gold soul beating

Wind in her hair I met a woman her bike was loaded down she was riding out I slowed my car and I said hello do you get it all the time cause I feel in this heart of mine I wanna be like you, you shining woman She sat astride her steel steed leaning on her handle bars she looked at me she said you've got fire in your eyes I can see it life passes by if you don't seize it then she rode away into the breeze I watched her grow small and shimmery Sitting in my car I felt a wonder of a wonder take a hold of me life's gone before you know it and excuses come so easy to me CHORUS Her hair flew around her head oh I see it when I lay awake in bed light spilled from her eyes like moon on a river night CHORUS
