Valerie (By Patti Scialfa)
Valerie
To the east and factories stand like fire breathing dragons against the sky.
And from their throats a scarlet river burns itself into smoky lullabies.
Over neon and fluorescent skies.

VALERIE CAN YOU HEAR THOSE ENGINES DRONE.
I WANTED TO GO TO MEXICO BUT I'M STRANDED HERE ALONE.
AND ONCE I KNEW A TRUE LOVE IT'S BEEN THREE YEARS SINCE HE'S GONE.
AND IF I COULD GET THAT FEELING BACK I'D GIVE UP EVERYTHING I OWN.

Sixteen days since I left corona and I traveled to this carnival town near Alberndeel.
And I rode the coaster there on the fairground. Twisted backbone of a beast that never heals. And I left some skin on fortunes wheel.

VALERIE CAN YOU HEAR THOSE ENGINES DRONE.
I WANTED TO GO TO MEXICO BUT I'M STRANDED HERE ALONE.
AND ONCE I KNEW A TRUE LOVE IT'S BEEN THREE YEARS SINCE HE'S GONE.
AND IF I COULD GET THAT FEELING BACK I'D GIVE UP EVERYTHING I OWN.

Everything's in slow motion now in this little border town.
I've come so close from so far.
Just to hide behind these windows here from the world outside.
I watch those cars and trucks raise trails of dust down the road as they pass by.

VALERIE CAN YOU HEAR THOSE ENGINES DRONE.
I WANTED TO GO TO MEXICO BUT I'M STRANDED HERE ALONE.
AND ONCE I KNEW A TRUE LOVE IT'S BEEN THREE YEARS SINCE HE'S GONE.
AND IF I COULD GET THAT FEELING BACK I'D GIVE UP EVERYTHING I OWN.
