Trouble In Shangri-La

I remember him
He was very young
No one spoke like him
He was someone
And I carried on like I couldn’t stop
All of it for us, baby

And you
You got in my way
Stood between me and my friends
It was my sin
It was my shame
You were unconscious to the pain I was in

I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Down to the sea
Show me the way back, honey
I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Show me the way back
To the sea

…be it spoken
To understand this light that we carry
And, let it light your way
Of course, you know I generally take it
I make accommodations for you
And, consider this
Well, you used to be my love
I make excuses for you

I hear there’s trouble in Shangri-la
(I run through the grass)
(I run over the stones)
(Down to the sea)
(Show me the way back)
Honey
I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Down to the sea
Show me the way back

I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Down to the sea
Show me the way back, honey
I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Show me the way back
To the sea

Well, you can consume
All the beauty in the room, baby
I know you can
I’ve seen you do it
And it brings up the wind
And it rises around you in pillars of color

But the promise has been broken
As you walk through the shadow of death
You try to see no evil
But you are so heartbroken
You say
Dear god, make it stop
Before the dawn of separation
(rises around you)
Pillars of color
I make accommodations for you

I guess we don’t believe
Things could go this far
We all believe in people
That we think believe in god
Somewhere in the night
Someone feels the pain
The ones who walk away try to love again

I hear there’s trouble in Shangri-la
(there’s trouble in)
Shangri-la
I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Down to the sea
Show me the way back, honey
I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Show me the way back
To the sea

I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Down to the sea
Show me the way back
I run through the grass
I run over the stones
Show me the way back
To the sea

Show me the way back
To Shangri-la
Show me the way back
But, I hear there’s trouble in Shangri-la…
Well, show me the way back
Show me the way back. oh baby
To Shangri-la
Run through the grass and run over the stones
Show me the way back…

I hear there’s trouble in
Trouble in Shangri-La…
I hear there’s trouble in
Trouble in Shang…ri-La…
Show me the way
Show me

Yeah…
Shangri-La
Da nana nana
Do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do
Do do do do
Shangri-La
