lyrics

you called me six times
when I was all bored
at that basement show in the suburbs

you made sure I knew where to go
to your bandmate's place
where you sat, tasting some of my words

you only remembered the simple tune
you only pretended not to lose your cool

and I was all flattered
that it didn’t even matter
that you caught hold of my hand
while your friend made an omelet
or a sandwich in the kitchen
in the middle of the night
(I think it was a Tuesday)
I quoted you the wasteland
beneath the blanket of your body
and you couldn't know
that I wouldn't get over you
But I pretend it all the time

and later that summer
I followed you to the ocean
I wanted to hear the water think

but you flirted with the breezes
and reckoned with the sand
and ripped my patience from my ribcage

you only remembered the simple tune
I only pretended not to lose my cool

and I was all flattered
that it didn’t even matter
that you caught hold of my hand
while your friend made an omelet
or a sandwich in the kitchen
in the middle of the night
(I think it was a Tuesday)
I quoted you the wasteland
beneath the blanket of your body
and you couldn't know
that I wouldn't get over you
But I pretend it all the time
