about

You made your masterpiece in a basement
You held it up above the flood
You put the finishing touches to her absence
You called me and you called that love
Yeah, you called me and you called that love

It took such a dreadful toll on you songbird
The cold winds coming off the radio
It left such a wintry pall on you polar bear
And your bed felt like an ice-flow
Yeah, your bed felt like an ice-flow

And you should know that everybody has these dreams
Where somebody departing turns around in the departure lounge, and says
‘Of course I still love you
I just couldn’t hear you for a minute there’

In the season when all of her thoughts were second
And all of your chances were last
Really nothing seemed as funny as it once was
But what got you was it wasn’t that sad
What got you was it wasn’t that sad

And you should know that everybody has these dreams
Where somebody departing turns around in the departure lounge, and says
‘Of course I still love you
I just couldn’t hear you for a minute there’

In the final throes of the girl’s grey glow
You said it was not a cloud across the sun
It could as well have been a faint heart-echo of the last one
And either could have been anyone

And you should know that everybody has these dreams
Where somebody departing turns around in the departure lounge, and says
‘Of course I still love you
I just couldn’t heart you for a minute there’
