Steely DanOn The Dunes

Drive along the sea Far from the city's twitch and smoke To a misty beach That's where my life became a joke On the dunes On the dunes (became a joke on the dunes) Where rents are high And seabirds cry On the dunes As you spoke you must have known It was a kind of homicide I stood and watched my happiness Drift outwards with the tide On the dunes On the dunes (homicide on the dunes) It wasn't fair It's brutal there On the dunes Pretty boats Sweeping along the shore In the faltering light Pretty women With their lovers by their side It's like an awful dream I have most every night In the summer all the swells Join in the search for sun and sand For me it's just a joyless place Where this loneliness began On the dunes On the dunes (loneliness on the dunes) I'm pretty tough But the wind is rough On the dunes
