lyrics

It should be electric
On this double A bed
With our poles connected
But the battery’s dead
We should be together
On a tropical beach
But it’s late September
The weather’s closing in

Hey you
With your magazines and wine
You’re on film
And looking pretty fine
(She’s looking fine, she’s looking fine)
Hey you
With your bedhead and regrets
I’m on fire
But there’s something I can’t forget
The desire, it outshines the performance, oh!

If we look the other way
Then it might just make it better
So let’s look the other way
Till the red fades into blue
I’ve got a bottle of gin and a head full of sin
And look, my heart’s still beating, baby
In a cold, dark world
There’s a corner where it’s always summer

I brought you here to show you
Just how vivid you are
A nuclear reactor
And a caravan park
We should be together
On a tropical beach
But the palms are pylons
The weather’s closing in

Hey you
With your cigarettes and schemes
We’re on tape
With a million brilliant dreams
(So many dreams, so many dreams)
Hey you
With your double X of sorts
You’re on top
With a head full of filthy thoughts
But for now
The desire, it outshines the performance, oh!

If we look the other way
Then it might just make it better
So let’s look the other way
Till the red fades into blue
I’ve got a bottle of rum and I’m aching for some
And look, my heart’s still beating, baby
In a cold, dark world
There’s a corner where it’s always summer

The long, dark winter of the soul
But in my heart it’s summertime
This long, dark winter eats us whole
But in my heart it’s summertime
