Lyrics

Chinese Checkers

Written By: Marty Canniff

Yesterday we felt o.k. words brought me back, I'm back from the dead. you remain uncertain as always. type love for me. I go back two pages.

enlightened sages from the dark ages brought me back. I'm back from the dead. Two years from now we'll say how grasshopper grew back from the dead.

It was a good word from a good bird on a cold day pulled from my grave.

chinese checkers. sand through my fingers. brush it off and scratch my head. you're the one. I told you so. warm soul, old soul back from the dead.

It was a good word from a good bird on a cold day pulled from my grave.
