about

Just a song about a girl and a tie dyed shirt she gave you that summer in the beach shack - a multicolored rainbow spiraling around your heart. echoes of early REM and The Byrds flavor this bright tune.

lyrics

she's got a certain something caught up in her smile
she cries a bluer tear than the greenest crocodile
a bluer blue than the august sky
and she's got
cheshire secrets deep within her eyes

and purple pinwheels sometimes bring me down
i've got a million colors spinning round and round
orange at sunset
yellow sand caught in my toes
she brings me
kisses scarlet redder than the rose

Up in the morning and we walk down to the shore
she pulls the beads aside and cruises through the door
she says, boy, can't you see the gate's open wide
come on over to the other side

she says, take me into your fold
everybody needs a hand to hold

and purple pinwheels sometimes bring me down
i've got a million colors spinning round and round
orange at sunset
yellow sand caught in my toes
she brings me
kisses scarlet redder than the rose
