lyrics

I met my love in Monterey

He was the heir of a wanted name

We drove all night to Santa Fe

And smoked cheap Virginias

And slipped away



Oh you, you know I'm in heaven

When you're touching me darling



Pick me up, let's leave tonight

In my black leather while he's getting high

Loosen me up, you know I'm shy

To those pretty crystals in the pale moonlight

But I kind of feel like letting someone down

Oh I kind of feel like letting someone down



I watched the madness grip his reigns

But nothing could scare us

Nothing

I wash my hands with champagne

It's getting the blood off

Numbs the sting



Oh you, you know that it's heaven

Even when it's killing me darling



Pick me up, let's leave tonight

In my black leather while he's getting high

Loosen me up, you know I'm shy

To those pretty crystals in the pale moonlight

But I kind of feel like letting someone down

Oh I kind of feel like letting someone down



He's my darkness, yet he's the light

And I can't imagine anything less

He's going to be troubled for life

But I couldn't do with anything else



Oh you, you know I'm in heaven

When you call my name darling



Pick me up, let's leave tonight

In my black leather while he's getting high

Loosen me up, you know I'm shy

To those pretty crystals in the pale moonlight

But I kind of feel like letting someone down

Oh I kind of feel like letting someone down
