"first love, last rites" as written by Benedikt Bohm and Silvia Ryder....
Needless to say there's a war
Starring Jules against Jim and a girl
Who is torn in between

needless to say life's a whore
Teasing two boys in corduroys
And I try to get by

who's leaving whom
Who's the fool
Right now I am
In between sheets we repeat
Our first love, last rites

truthful all endings are bad
Because otherwise they just won't end
Quoting Jules versus Jim

when all of your prior restrictions
Have turned into brand new addictions
Will you know to let go

who's leaving whom
Who's the fool
Right now I am
In between sheets we repeat
Our first love, last rites

    General CommentUh! this is what im talking about. This music! for the past 3 years i have tried insanely to find one of their cds but no ones ever even herd of them. i cant even find a single mp3 to put on my ipod.
    this is extremely tragic because these guys have one of the most unique dreamy one of a kind sounds ive ever herd.. & ive herd more than allot. In the summer, if I think of it . I crave to hear it & will, honestly, spend an hour trying to find something from them to download . but 92 google pages of ‘dance of the sugarplum fairies”ringtones later … no success. and my ears are sad=[
    but them being on that doctor show that all good unknown artists are discovered on is perfect. i just really hope that more people discover what Gems these guys are so that more ears may be blessed with their beautiful melodies... but also so i can finally find their freaking cd
