Salutations - Conor Oberst lyrics

Barbary Coast (Later)
Conor Oberst Song Lyrics

Artist: Conor Oberst
Album: Salutations (2017)

There's a dance hall there
Where the sick folks go
Like the olden days on the barbary coast
There's a barefoot child playing in the rain
You can sell your wares even if they're hard
In the great bazaar or the parking lot
Cause it takes a while to know who to blame
I might have a taste cause the first one's free
And the checkout girl's got a thing for me
And they're both as sweet as the day is the long.

I don't wanna feel stuck, baby
I just wanna get drunk before noon.

I don't mind my head when there's room to dream
Feel like paul gauguin painting breadfruit trees
In some far off place where I don't belong
Tried to lose myself in the primitive
In yosemite like john muir did
But his eyes were blue and mine are red and raw
'cause the modern world is a sight to see
It's a stimulant, it's pornography
It takes all my will not to turn it off.

I don't want you to feel sad, baby
I take everything back, I swear I do.

Cause once all the friends I had
Have used me up and left
I bet you hang around
I bet you'll hang around awhile.
