Phoenix Motel

Lyrics: Midnight North
Music: Midnight North

Sung by Elliott Peck with Midnight North with Phil Lesh guesting on bass in June 2014. The words are hard to make out: any help gratefully receieved.

Standing in the corner about midnight
The shadows hanging long and low
Your bloodshot eyes meet me with surprise
Guess there's something we both didn't know

Split of a second to answer
Less than a moment to ask
The scarlet skies left you drowning in lies
And there ain't a chance that you're coming back

It's a long way home
When you're tired and you're cold
It's a long, long way back home

It's a long, long road
When your soul you went and sold
It's a long, long way back home

Suspicions arise in the evening
Too many questions to speak
Now I'm feeling faint when in the morning you ain't
Laying in the bed next to me

Now the click of my heels makes you weary
You thought you'd gotten off scot free
I found the key to the Phoenix Motel
It was buried in our old love seat

It's a long way home
When you're tired and you're cold
It's a long, long way back home

It's a long, long road
When your soul you went and sold
It's a long, long way back home

A long cold walk down that old dark pier
Waves hit the walls and wash over my fear
Long lost call to that wild black sea
Might have made you forget about me

It's a long way home
When you're tired and you're cold
It's a long, long way back home

It's a long, long road
When your soul you went and sold
It's a long, long way back home
It's a long, long way back home
It's a long, long way back home
