MEMORIES ARE A PURPLE HAZE

MEMORIES ARE A PURPLE HAZE
JIMI HENDRIX COINED THAT PHRASE
SHE STILL LOVES ROCK & ROLL
HENDRIX WARMS HER SOUL
SHE CRIES AT WUTHERING HEIGHTS
OR SEEING BIRDS TAKE OFF IN FLIGHT
SHE REMEMBERS SEEING CLAPTON ON THE STAGE
WHEN HE WAS POPULAR AND THE RAGE
SHE LOVES FOREIGN MOVIES
FINDS THEM REALLY GROOVY
SHE LOVES A WALK IN THE MOONLIGHT
MAKES EVERYTHING SEEM RIGHT
TIME HAS PASSED IN A HEARTBEAT
REMEMBERING WALKING IN THE STREET
NO SHOES ON HER FEET
PROTESTING ALL THE WRONGS
WHILE SINGING A PROTEST SONG
SOMETIMES MISSES ALLTHE CLARITY
OF HOW THINGS USED TO BE
SHE FEELS SHE’S IN A DAZE
MEMORIES ARE A PURPLE HAZE
