CD 1
  • 1 Does This Mean You're Moving On?
  • 2 The Girls in Their Summer Dresses
  • 3 Wishing Well
  • 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
