She was a real royal lady, true patron of the arts
So if I ever got too hungry for a suitcase or guitar
So I laid some nights beside her in a bed made for a queen
Gave me anything I wanted, oh, the generosity
Now the sky is a torn up denim and the clouds are just splattered paint
If I get out of California I?m going back to my home state

Lighting candles to a cynical saint
You can go right out of your mind trying to escape
If you can?t understand something then it?s best to be afraid
The whole world, it loves you if you are a chic chameleon
But when conducting business she would lie about where she?s from
I learned to listen, felt like I was back at school
Saying, "Everything is a cycle, you?ve got to let it come to you
Without even knowing I guess I took her advice
It?s not that often but I think of her sometimes

Turning circles in a memory maze
I had to change the combination to the safe
And never trust a heart that is so bent it can?t break
