Robert Ellis – Chemical Plant lyrics

In a small town down on the highway to coast
Factories and churches lay on dusty gravure roads
This is where they first met
Such a long time ago

Young runners, what the hell is?
Foolish and unguarding, following blindly without fear
Skippin' school and hoppin' fences
Making love down by the pear

Love like in a man's react
Constellations in the black
The lights from the chemical plant
Burn bright in the night like an old kerosene lamp
From a car parked by the ocean
What a vision to behold
The lights from the chemical plant

She says my heart is like an orphan
And your words are like home
I do not deserve such kindness
Keeps me warm down to my arms
We bear some strange familiar likeness
To a man I feel I know

As if to keep each other safe
They spent the night and then embrace

And the lights from the chemical plant
Burn bright in the night like an old kerosene lamp
When all seemed unstable
I could watch how they were there
The lights from the chemical plant

All the years pass by the'
So I'm '
And whenever things got rough, the pain they share
But no matter when death comes
It is on '
She sat next to him
And tried hard to prepare

How can you still see them?
Through the window if you look
They are still there
Open up your eyes
Just once more, darling
Cause without I know I just can't bear

The lights from the chemical plant
Burn bright in the night like an old kerosene lamp
I was sure that they would always be there
And one day they were gone
The lights from the chemical plant
