lyrics

AN ATLAS OF THE DIFFICULT WORLD

Took a plane ride to London
Hopped a train to Italy
Caught a speed boat and sailed off to sea
I saw the temples of Athens
The lights of Paris
Saw some sunsets you would not believe

I ordered whiskey and water
I drank tonic and gin
In every town, behind the bar, I found a friend
I stayed up till the morning
Made my days into nights
Anything that was wrong the maid made all right
I tried to burn myself out
Like a moth to the flame
But every wonder I saw said your name

So I guess I’ll stop running
Try to stay in one place
I’ll probably never stop seeing your face
I said, there’s no use in running
Besides where would I go?
So I’m learning to live with your ghost

words & music by Frank Cruz

Frank Cruz - vocals, keyboard
Chris Dixon - bass, electric guitars

Recorded by Chris Dixon at the Lab in Oakland, CA
Mixed by Scott Goodrich at Nu-Tone Studios in Pittsburg, CA
