The Party’s Over

The party’s over

Just leave the empties on the bed

We had our clover

Long Beach Blvd and Banshee’s dead

We can never say goodbye

And we’ve never had a fight

You, the best looking ne’er de well

On the darkest LA nights

The party’s over

its time to put that shit to bed

crimson and clover

Sunset Blvd and Banshee’s dead

I will leave you everything

No I wouldn’t want to fight about it

I assume this broke you up at bit

But you never even shouted

The party’s over

Pink wine and redwoods on Coast

The party’s over

Only hangers on now and lonely boys

We were Tristan and Isolde

But the potion done wore off

Two short decades later

And every kiss still on my mouth

And every poem

And every lick

And all our mixed up foggy breath

Together flying cross the dry lake

Beds toward the freezing waters

The party’s over

Just leave the empties on the bed

The truth is I haven’t got the shoulders

To carry us back to the nest

All the legacy we left behind

Boy we sure did burn it bright

And in our wake now nothing but beauty

    I am still sad thinking about you two, and so proud of you to remember all the good things in your song. Lots of people can relate to your words and this song, loved it.
    Cant wait to hug you and tell you how proud I am of you.

    Oh Camille, one of your most touching pieces yet. Profound you are. Your voice and the way you Loved. Bitter Sweet Medicine and One Foot in Front of the Other Moving Forward. Love You

    You already know how I feel about this song, thanks to your live performance in our living room. It is so raw and real – straight from the heart. Beautiful.
