lyrics

Verse 1:
She wears her Ray-Bans in the eye of the storm
Just to be sure, to be sure the coast is clear
‘Cause when the dust settles and all the gunslingers have gone home
There ain’t nothin’ left but to be alone

Verse 2:
Cigarettes and bottles have a way of walking at her feet
When the sky gets dark and she can’t find her sleep

Chorus:
From the Northern lights
That are chasing her down
Like green carosene glowing in the sky and there ain’t no one around

And it’s alright, it’s alright
It’s alright, it’s alright
To be alone

Verse 3:
She’d look much prettier if she’d learn to smile more
But she’s caught between a world of greed and the kitchen floor
Lookin’ for a place to scratch her name in the paint
Now she’s goin’ door to door tryin’ to find an escape

From the Northern lights
That are chasing her down
Like green carosene glowing in the sky and there ain’t no one around

And it’s alright, it’s alright
It’s alright, it’s alright
To be alone

(repeat)
