Neko Case Lyrics

11. Prison Girls



Where am I tonight
My hotel room won't remember me.
And this dream will die, die by morning
And this dream will not remember me

Awakened by a droning voice
"I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes."
Is it a lady or is it a man
Humming helicopters through the blades of a fan

I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes
I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes

On my feet to chase it down
A light which spooks and runs away
I stumble back and hit the floor
Long shadows crawl beneath a door
To a passage so poorly lit, there's moths flying away from it

Who am I tonight
My hotel room won't remember me
Darkness, enter prison girls
Pushing mops and kicking pails
Now's my chance
I clasp my chest and declare into my audience
"I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes
I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes."

Prison girls are not impressed
They're the ones who have to clean this mess
They've traded more for cigarettes 
Than I've managed to express

Filing past, miles long
My cheek is frozen to the floor
Prison girls have filled their beds
Their thoughts to dry above their heads

I'm waiting in the morning

I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes
I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes
I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes
I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes
I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes
I love your long shadows and your gunpowder eyes
