cool wind in my hair warm smell of colitas,
涼風吹着散發着濃烈大麻味的頭髮
rising up through the air

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
我感頭很重, 視線模糊
I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway;

I heard the mission bell

And Iwas thinking to myself,

'this could be heaven or this could be hell'
這是從天堂來還是從地獄來的呢?
Then she lit up a candle
