Lyrics by Mikel Jollett
It was an old song from Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me that she sang. It was an old line I’d kept with me when she rang. You’re such a strange girl.
It’s all been erased. Everyone is telling me. It’s slightly deranged. Everyone is telling me. We traded blindness for wisdom and some lines around our eyes. And you just act like, it was a fact of life and didn’t come as a surprise.You’re such a strange girl.
And no, you can’t ever go home. Everything has changed, and the people are gone. So you close your eyes, you try to summon the song. And you feel your life falling under you like a slide. It was an old song. I once knew every note and every line. It was a long night when I carried you, and you carried me for a time.You’re such a strange girl.
It’s all been erased. Everyone is telling me. It’s slightly deranged. Everyone is telling me. I dreamt of your face and what the song was telling me. But time has made it all obscene and trapped us in our dreams.
