Wont you let Marlene come in

The ghost of her hair
It floats over there
And her smile, her smile
It seems seems so lonely
She gave me her hand
As they struck up the band
And she seemed to say, she seemed to say
‘You're the only'

And then we danced like two snowflakes
In the falling wind
In the wind
And do me a favour God
Won't you let Marlene come in

The gymnasium floor
The brass bound door
The jungle bird the jungle bird
That she showed me
Her love was so clean
To tell the truth Marlene
The sound of your tambourine still owns me

We were so young then
Now that I'm old I know, oh I know
I loved you right then
but I made Marlene let go

My friends in the bars
Hell they only see the scars
And they do not give a damn, they do not give a damn That I loved you
I don't know why
But once you've seen the sky
You think you know all birds are lovely

But this snow on the ground
It won't stop tonight
It's 22 years dear
Since I saw the light

The world it explodes
As such a high powered load
To run, to run, to run
Was all that left me
Up here this breeze
High in the clouds we freeze
To fly, to fly away
Was the lesson

You know the fire it burned her life out
Left me little more
I am a crippled singer
And it evens up the score

The ghost of her hair
It floats over there
And her smile, her smile
It seems seems so lonely
She gave me her hand
As they struck up the band
And she seemed to say, she seemed to say
‘You're the only'

And then we danced like two snowflakes
In the falling wind
In the wind
And do me a favour God
Won't you let Marlene come in
And do me a favour God
Won't you let Marlene come in
