There was romance in the air for sure
There was romance in the air
When the autumn sun light Sharmon Palms
There was romance in the air

Sitting on the steps shit-head drunks
We had a crew and we called it The Skunx
Punk rockers, skinheads, misfits & misunderstood kids
Me and Ben, we spent years
By the palm trees drinking beers
Where the center of the universe was a street called Sharmon Palms

Youth was exhausted
Some took it harder than most
My best friend crumbled
And the withered away
I went back to the palm trees
The safest place that Ben could ever be
Mixed his ashes with the dirt
He was safe there

    General CommentThis is on the Let Me Go EP, which I can't seem to find ANYWHERE it seems. I think it was only released in Japan. :/

    From the bits and pieces of what I've heard of the song it's pretty good
