lyrics

Hedonistic summertime every romantic song that we know
On the nearest college station when you
Criticized my wooly mammoth caravan that I drove
In fits and starts somehow it got me from the
Casbah in the Hammer to Eternal Bummer Manor shows
Never could escape the balladry
I've got a string quartet that follows me wherever I go
It plays on and on I hear them when we're going
Station to tape and place to place always looking for a saviour
Without much to save heroes we find are always the same
But I don't think that we wasted any time
Searching for our unsung pleasures

Those nights have been forgotten
Every party was a fantasy undone
Got used to washouts that always
Came upon us just as plain as the rain comes
But our affective empathy shed particles that were summoned
Like little sparks between us that grew into a sun

But now look at you Miss Universe
You're standing just inside a window
You're wrapped up in a curtain while I'm
In the Pearson Garden sat by a memorial stone
To us each our own somehow we're both surviving
I know you'll keep believing in hope
In corners of the world where excesses of love have been stored
But you'll only find love where you can create it

Those nights have been forgotten
Every party was a fantasy undone
Got used to washouts that always
Came upon us just as plain as the rain comes
But our affective empathy shed particles that were summoned
Like little sparks between us that grew into a sun
