Grace Kelly Blues

This song is by Eels and appears on the album Daisies of the Galaxy (2000) and on the live album Oh What a Beautiful Morning (2000).

Original video
The cut-rate mime walking through the dirty streets
Of Paris in the hot August heat
Sun melting the fake smile away
Just looking for a place to stay

The actress gave up all her old dreams
And traded up, now she is a queen
Royal familys don't have time for that shit
Your crystal ball, you keep it hid

The tractor-trailor driver radios:
"Help me someone, I'm out here all alone."
Truck driving the black night away
Praying for the light of day

The kid in the mall works at Hawt Dawg on a Stick
His hat is a funny shape, his heart is a brick
Taking your order, he will look away
He doesn't have a thing to say

But me, I'm feeling pretty good as of now
I'm not so sure when I got here or how
Sun melting the fake smile away
I think you know, I'll be okay
