lyrics

I finally dislodged
The gorgon head of heartbreak
Where the swollen bulb once grew
Now cool detachment takes its place

I’m up with the dahlias
To see the lake boil under a rising sun
No one around for miles
I take off my suit
I take myself in my hands
Until I come

Ooh and it feels
So new and soft
Wanting this moment all to myself
Like the last bar of chocolate

They say we shall be given
all the love we deserve
When the waitress came back with the check
I thought
“is that all that I’m worth?”

it's a non-linear narrative
disembarking a plane
I saw you
plastered on a billboard
inside JFK
no one knows the real you
you say


CHORUS
Even at our worst
I loved you above all the rest
Behind the red curtain where we no longer belong to them

The tides they pull us in all directions
As we perform love’s imperfection
(as we perform)
With true affection
True affection

Reeking of eau de privilege
I haven’t showered in a week
Isolation once thought provincial
Now a rarified luxury

I might use summer as a verb
I might play a little croquet

I see a copse atop a hill
And say a little prayer
It’ll stay that way

Pull over your cherry red truck
So I can empty out my confetti guts
We spent what I make in a week in just one night
On cocktails and small plates at Biwa

Life’s a non-linear narrative
My mask is peeling at the corners
You drove us through a blizzard and skid into a field of corn
“I think I see the real you,” you said.

One sided as a side show act
That week together was one of the best in my life
So this is how the other half lives?
Is this how it feels being alive?

CHORUS
Even at our worst
I loved you above all the rest
Behind the red curtain
where we no longer belong to them

The tides they pull us in all directions
As we perform love’s imperfection
with true affection

Even at our worst
I loved you above all the rest.
