lyrics

Well, something happened, I fell in love
But it was weird, real weird
It was an unknown planet
A strange being was standing all alone
When I fix my ship would you like to hit the void?
Oh is this your ship? This little space toy?
Oh a spaceling with humor
My favorite kind
But when I looked closer, she was sad inside
Oh my android she sheds real tears
She’s weird, I think I love you dear.

Well I don’t have to tell you,
Just how great she was
So beautiful, so intelligent, all those things
But she was married to some cyborg type
I tried to steal her away
And we were on the run
Her cyborg husband followed with his gun
He shot her he shot her
She bled green blood
I cried oh can’t I have a normal love

What happened to her?
She lived. And we really tried to make it work
We tried to make a life
But we were so different, such different types
That we had to break it off
And I’m still messed up
Did she go back to her husband?
I don’t even know what happened to her
But I miss her, y’know? I really miss her.

My antennas went deep into the afterworld
And I searched for her
Where the night is quiet
With star gleams
And comet trails.

about

Sonny & The Sunsets San Francisco, California

Sonny & the Sunsets are a beautiful west coast thing. Birthed from the sand, the surf, and twilight campfires down in Ocean Beach, Sonny & the Sunsets’ busted beach-pop songs spark recollections of doo wop's otherworldly despair, a dose of goofball humor from the Michael Hurley school, and positive possibilities exuded by Jonathan Richman. ... more
