Monterey

Monterey
Lori Lieberman

I grew up like an airplane just floatin’ and fallin’ away
Spent my life like a speeding train, rollin’ in and pullin’ away
Now I wonder, will you be home to me
And I wonder what do you hold for me
Monterey
Monterey

I’ll hang out by your cinder blocks
Just a foreigner burned by your sun
I’ll park my car on your graveled rocks
And shoot B-B’s at your lizards with my gun
And wonder, is there someone in me
And wonder, can you see anything
Monterey
Monterey

I’m nobody now
I’m all of them now
I’m nobody, nobody, nobody now
Well maybe on your streets I’ll find my way
Monterey
Monterey

He couldn’t manage my kind of joy
And he just couldn’t handle me crying
So he sailed away with his fishing pole
Just to see what came up on his line
Now I wonder, was our love meant to end
And I wonder, is my luck round the bend?

Monterey

I’m nobody now
I’m all of them now
I’m nobody, nobody, nobody now
Well maybe on your streets I’ll find my way
