try as we might, we can never forget
the night we talked on the library steps
but now I hear you've got a boy you've got to go and see
him and his petit-bourgeois family

but you look like your heart's not in it at all
so let me take you to the place where I like to read
where the light is soft and there's a bit of a breeze
where the people that you meet all say "hello," and then they go

you open your eyes and you ask for a light
and a ticket on a bus that is leaving tonight
but there are things more important than security
more important than a petit-bourgeois family

you really look like your heart's not in it at all
so let me take you to the place where I like to read
where the light is soft and there's a bit of a breeze
where the people that you meet all want to know why you'll go
yes, they really want to know
