The Airborne Toxic Event The Girls in Their Summer Dresses Lyrics

sponsored links

It's so quiet on these windswept days
The city lights, the golden rays
The sunlight on the subway tracks
Are you mad again?
If you like I'll take it back

They're just your feelings
I wasn't looking at her ass
Oh do you mean it?

It's so lonesome [unknown]
If you ask me, yes I'd like to dance
Just show me a glove covered hand
A perfumed dress is more than I can stand

And you approach me
With your hollow hearted hands
And you tell me...

It's not civilised
It's not fair to me
The blues, the greys, the olive greens
All take you far away from me
The girls in their summer dresses say

Though you don't notice
They all look back at me
Is this on purpose?

Oh no no no
Oh no no no
Oh no no no

I offer you this one olive branch
It's not as though they're always so keen
And we're both just the victims of circumstance
Do you understand, do you know what I mean?

Oh no no no
Oh no no no
Oh no no no
Oh no no no

I'm a husband first
I'm a jobless curse
I'm a faithful man
With a faceless [unknown]

I'll stay with you
Oh please don't sigh
I try to explain
But you cry and cry and cry

And you hate me when I ask the reason why
You'll trade me a dollar for some sense
But don't blame me I was only making sense
Oh I'm so sorry, I was only making sense
