Ivory Boy

This song is by The Nits and appears on the album Wool (2000) and on the album Hits (2000).

The ivory boy came to Hamburg and Cologne
He bought three one way tickets for the train
He travelled with his sister and a girl who looked like Lili Marlene

He said: "Cancer, cancer is a hurricane
Blows away my body and it tears out my brain
But the songs you play somehow ease the pain"

You're keeping my senses awake
You're keeping my senses awake
You're keeping my senses awake
Awake

Sometime just before going on stage
The girl with the pale and the beautiful face
Suddenly stood next to me
Like a ghost in the house of mystery

She said: "Cancer, cancer, I'm a little flame
That started this fire and burning his brain
And I don't know who gave me a face like Lili Marlene"

How can you fade away
Like a light on a dark highway
A million years from now
I see you when the light changes

Keeping your senses awake
Awake

So the lights went down and the crowd was dark
Like the moon that covers the sun
Except for two white faces that slowly became one

How can you fade away
Like a light on a dark highway
A million years from now
I see you when the light changes

I will be there
