lyrics

Colour in the dark parts first, hide the highlights.
Scribble in hard, hard, hard
No composition here to light the room
or draw your eye
From nowhere to nowhere
To gone

Was he sweet? Well, that’s sweet.
Was he fair? Eyes like a breath of fresh air, but not too fresh?
Were you lost in his songs? His sounds?
You said you never heard any like his before.
Do you miss your boyfriend’s fake British accent?
I bet.

You’re amazed he fills in the stage, when you’re empty.
Et son esprit qui tourner le couteau dans la plaie.
To you each, you fill in his sheets in every home de couer insourmis.
Draws your eye from nowhere to nowhere
To gone.
Gone

Was he sweet? Well, that’s sweet.
Was he kind? That’s kind of hard to believe.
Did the heat of his words begin to feel like
You were hearing through the wall
From the hall of your home.
Where you could hear your boyfriend’s fake British accent,
I bet.

Was he sweet? Well, that’s sweet.
Was he fair? Eyes like a breath of fresh air, but not too fresh?
Were you lost in his songs? His sounds?
You said you never heard any like his before.
Do you miss your boyfriend’s fake British accent?
I bet.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
