Beverly Terrace

It’s like a showdown at Beverly Terrace
Perhaps a movie filmed in 1949
Just outside of Paris
With palm trees shipped direct from Hollywood & Vine

I’d love to change your permanent address
Even for a week or two down by the bay
Now don’t be embarrassed
Of the well upholstered times from another day

We left behind
I never understood this way of life
The sun beats down upon the sand
And this is where I’d like to draw the line

Yeah, we left behind
I never understood this way of life
The sun beats down upon the sand
And this is where I’d like to draw the line

She wears sunscreen in middle of winter
To remind herself of summers that were kind
I’m a downstream drifter
Detached from either shore with peace of mind

Living in the shadow of love
Is all some people can do
Living in the shadow of love
Is all some people can do
Living in the shadow, I know, I know
But knowing doesn’t make it untrue
Living in the shadow of love
