Big Romantic Stuff

Did they never tell you 'bout it baby
Did they never say it's tough
Are you never going to give up on that
Big romantic stuff

That French song playing on the radio at noon
The singer's name was Jean Michel and he's singing 'bout la lune
And she shivers as she comes awake
And remembers how to think
And she shakes the hair out of her eyes
But the daylight makes her blink
And the song it whispers in her mind like a half forgotten sigh
Of times of love the longest days and youth and endless skies
And ooh la la la
ooh la la la

Did they never tell you 'bout it baby
Did they never say it's tough
Are you never going to give up on that
Big romantic stuff

To ease the pain of it, to fill the empty void
She stores up ancient souvenirs like ravens with their hoards
It's not the getting old she minds, it's the meaningless of being
She thinks about all this while Jean sings about la vie
And accordions and violins take her back in time
When the only explanation was a kiss and love and life...

Did they never tell you 'bout it baby
Did they never say it's tough
Are you never going to give up on that
Big romantic stuff

Crucified Me

First time that I saw you, you were standing in the hall
You said you knew everything but I knew you knew fuck all
There were tremors in your cheekbones, there was longing in your eyes
But I thought I smelt a nameless fear buried in your thighs
You crucified me
Do you see that you crucify me
I crounched down in the hallway, you huddled on the step
There were shadows in the alcove, we were way out of our depth
There was thunder in the hallway, there was lightning at the gate
Electric storms flashed through the walls in fixed and fluid states
And crucified me
Do you see taht you crucify me
Now and then I call your name and now and then it's clear
Baby you can call in vain even though you're near
You were cloaked in your depression like a widow in her veils
How could we begin to think that we could ever fail
You crucify me
Do you see that you crucify me
First time that I saw you, you were standing 'gainst the wall
You swore I knew everything but you knew I knew fuck all
