Japanese Lanterns

I found an old picture of you
sitting in the clarksburg pool
green and yellow and blue
a brand new bathing suit
I could fill the giant silver screen
if I could only remember what I've seen
found a photograph of you from 1972
japanese lanterns rise
into the midnight sky
and I'm on fire

I found an old letter from you
you saw a childhood ghost on the number two
flying a kite up into the storm
he jumped down from the roof and broke his arm
you could write the all american tome
if you could just remember what you've done
flying a kite up into the storm
jumped down from the roof and broke his arm
japanese lanterns rise
into the midnight sky
and I'm on fire
japanese lanterns rise
into the midnight sky
and I'm on fire
