lyrics

After you left, I peeled my chest from the floor
Now I’m giving you the good old Gang of Four
Sweat’s running down your back
Sweat’s running down your back

You say we should be friends
You say love never ends
You are wrong
and this song is too long

City too small
Sunlight too bright
Too much strip mall
There’s never any night

Funky life
Funky life

Intermittent brights
light up the night
Everybody tells me you’re wrong
but I just say, “You’re right”

You’re behind me now
or is it beyond?
I don’t need to touch the skin
of which I’m fond

Sweat’s running down your back
Sweat’s running down your back

You say we should be friends
You say love never ends
You are wrong
and this song is too long

City too small
Sunlight too bright
Too much strip mall
There’s never any night

One night my body betrayed
the simple promise I painstakingly made

Oh, that view is tremendous…

One night my body betrayed
the simple promise I painstakingly made

City too small
Sunlight too bright
Too much, too much strip mall
There’s never any night

All that glitters…
