Lyrics

stephen hodges - drums
eamon ryland - electric guitar
sasha smith - wurlitzer, reed organ
eric corne - vocals, bass, acoustic guitar, tambourine

out on the plains of friendly manitoba
the devil, he didn't much pass by
so i took my desires out to california
met him there but i didn't sign

time doesn't wait for no man at the curb
she will pass right by without a word

got me a place just outside pasadena
the grass out back nearly touched the sky
met a girl planted an apple tree, but
i never did take a bite

time doesn't wait for no man at the curb
like a pretty girl she just moves through your world

and you just stop and stare

puff and poof it's epiphany
straight into my brain like a laser beam
for some time i was blind but now i see
oh, such visions of light inside my dream

time doesn't wait for no man at the curb
she will pass right by without a word
oceans of pearls could not tempt her to turn
like a pretty girl she just moves through your world

and you just stop and stare
