Climbing for coconuts
Musical shells
We never shot the smoke signal
We watched Amelia Earhart fly on by
And refused the talking dolphins that offered us a ride

We just beat each other up
And made constant love
You couldn't tell the difference
Best friends or ?

We ambushed the doves
And made jewelry out of pearls
I was homecoming queen
Never did get over that, being a whore

    General Commenti've always thought this song was about shuting out the world and being on your own not wanting other people.

    General CommentI kind of think about a couple stranded on an island, maybe highschool sweethearts that were on their way to their honeymoon. Then they love living there in the wild, they don't care about things that we worry about in civilization, like how Amelia Earheart died or about what dolphins are capable of.

    They forget everything from the past and just love the carefree life they're living.

    General CommentI think it's:
    "Best friends or real enemies..."
    I'm not sure, that's just what I hear
