Fran Landesman and The Ballad Of The Sad Young Men

Tired little girl  does the best she can...

All the sad young men
Sitting in the bars
Knowing neon nights
Missing all the stars

All the sad young men
Drifting through the town
Drinking up the night
Trying not to drown

A place in Mexico overlooking the Sea of Cortez.

I need a place to call my own
a place to call my home
a place I could to run to
introduce my son to
Its amazing
extraordinary
its called peace of mind
you can have a piece of mine
