The Felice Brothers - Valium Lyrics


Well I’m at a motel on the border of Utah and Colorado
There’s an old John Wayne movie on, I think it’s John Wayne
A bride is being carried away on horseback and into the darkening horizon
The soft murmur of strings and the lowing of distant cattle
Is like valium for the national conscious

Valium
Valium
In this warmly beating heart
In this warmly beating heart

My happiness is touch and go
Kind of like this motel’s HBO
I’ve been sitting here flipping through the channels
A presidential debate
A split second later, a picture perfect dinner emerges from an oven
Yeah that rattle snake never stood a chance against the likes of Annie Oakley

Annie Oakley
Annie Oakley
In this warmly beating heart
In this warmly beating heart

But the night is too silent to sleep
So I’m standing now in the dust of the road, contemplating heaven
I must have been lost on some kind of excursion up the Colorado
I think her name was Marilyn, but I don’t remember anything else about her
Except that her hair smelled of gunpowder
That’s it for tonight, signing off
Signing off

Marilyn
Marilyn
In this warmly beating heart
In this warmly beating heart

Valium
Valium
In this warmly beating heart
In this warmly beating heart

In this warmly beating heart
(Warmly beating heart)
In this warmly beating heart
In this warmly beating heart
