Dead Girl from River's Edge

This song is based on the account of a friend, who had a drunken fling with a stranger at a party and regretted it BEFORE she sobered up. The title is a reference to the 1986 movie River’s Edge, and the character played by Danyi Deats.

lyrics…
Well, you’re reckless ‘cause you don’t care less
if strange hands paw your brand new dress,
While all the other party guests are watching you roll on the floor.
But then you simply lie there like the dead girl from “River’s Edge”…
and you wonder how the ground looks
from your bedroom window ledge.
But just like that the ideal dies
as loneliness looks in your eyes,
then much to your own surprise, you’re worried they’ll find you a bore.
Because you simply lie there like the dead girl from “River’s Edge”…
and you wonder how the ground looks
from your bedroom window ledge.
How you’d like to sit back and relax,
but he would pull the clothes right from your back.
Although it feels wrong, you’ve been lonely far too long.
So you do all they want you to do.
When you close your eyes do you find the happy place where…
somebody who loves you waits with chocolate cupcakes?

Heyyyy, welcome back. The sound is bright and delightful as always. I gotta say, the retro pop is apparent but never sounds like it's languishing in the past. It's a bubbly optimism that is sorely missing in garage rock.
