She said she felt clean, sticky clean if I remember
She said she felt funny asking
And he said he felt funny saying no...
But he said no
Alone, she shrank away

Beautiful sun
Beautiful sun
Elegant bright light shining
Elegant light
I will not lay down with you that easy

She spat anxiously, look here at my recommendations
She unfolded the page in front of him
And smoothed it with her hand,
As he looked away
Alone she seethed inside


She said nervously, I must have been mistaken
She laughed loud between the apologies
She left ringing in his head,
As she walked away
Alone he fought with his fidelity

    General CommentNow here’s a guess, I’d like people to comment if they agree with it or not –
    I don’t think he’s talking about a particular woman, even though he probably wrote this after a particular incident –
    I think “beautiful sun” refers to all the beauties of the west coast.
