From the recording Marina


Listening to the radio, driving with nowhere to go
Wondering if I ought to leave this town
Everywhere I look, I see your ghost is staring back at me
So I start drinking like I wanna drown
Feel the darkness close in
And I start sinking
As the radio starts singing out your name

It says, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
Van sings, “G-L-O-R-I-A”
I cry “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I scream, “G-L-O-R-I-A”

Well I went crazy long ago, got all fucked up along the road
Got used to building up just to burn it down
All the broken things in me have killed off what we used to be
Now I don’t go home, just float around

But out there on the airwaves, they ain’t got no grace
And Van just keeps singing out your name

We sing, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
We cry, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
We scream, “G-L-O-R-I-A”
We cry, “G-L-O-R-I-A”

What have I done? I’ve went and thrown it all away!
Cause if you don’t try, you never fail.
Oh where has she gone, and is she there to stay?
The fear it pierces like a coffin-nail

And Van is on the radio, howlin’ like he’s got no home
So I turn him off and just sob out your name

I cry, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I scream, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I cry, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I sing, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I cry, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I sing, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I scream, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I cry, “G-L-O-R-I-A.”
I sing, “G-L-O-R-I-A!”
I cry, “G-L-O-R-I-A!”
