about

Remixed and remastered version of previous release.

lyrics

Skyline over the rooftops is the colour of milk
The calm of an early evening
Watching planes slide through the sky
You wear a floaty dress
I’m lounging in my workshirt
We can sit like this for hours before the cold drives us away

One of us is going to have to leave
When nature runs its course,
I’ll leave you with a houseful of car boot bargains

Let’s not talk about it now
Let’s not talk now

All the things that we do
With all this time on our hands
Keep busy mixing cocktails for our friends
And waiting for the spring to rush through us again
So we can dance like we’re animals at the disco
And you can write your novel while I comb my hair
And I can sings my songs into the mirror
Or else we spend our evening staring blackly into the fire

Maybe it would make it easier to part right now
We’ve got our lives ahead of us
Lots of time to get used to being alone

With all the things that I’ll do
With all this time on my hands
Keep busy mixing cocktails for my friends
And waiting for the spring to rush through us again
So I can dance like I’m an animal at the disco
And you can write your novel while I comb my hair
And I can sings my songs into the mirror
Or else we spend our lonely evenings staring into the fire
