Suddenly your miles away
Gone down
To little New Orleans
And everybody moves so slow
Just like the movies

And then it dawns on me sometimes
Elizabeth can't breathe
Everybody stops and stares
Then she feels better

You hear somebody start to say
I'm going to find myself today
Now that my war is won

William, James and me
We like to wonder in the streets
When everything is true and calm
We get our answers

Then the sign comes down
At the end of town
Save our country
Buy more bombs
And we believing
Go out and see what you can get
We're like the whole life I get
Out in the great unknown
You hear someone start to say
I'm going to find myself today
Now that my war is done

Somebody say
Make it all mine

Did you ever think about me sometimes
Elizabeth can't sleep
And everybody's so concerned
Then she feels better

William, James and me
Join all the people in the street
Paper ribbons coming down
Just like the movies

So let the sun come down
At the end of town
Where everything's a shade of red
Just like the pictures

What's that you say Elizabeth?
Go out and see what you can get
Somebody stops and stares
She's feeling better
