young runaway
upstanding man
the spring you seek is not for them
to stroke his cheek
and thus repair the a-hole
of his creator

you always complain no one's good
well here you are let them see

tommy and dan
you can't hold hands
down your street
who cares you're gay
but it's your age
no friend oh

a wretched life to sit through
his sister cries "you'll go to hell"
you're unsure if he's legal
it's more

tommy and dan
you can't hold hands
down your street
who cares you're gay
but it's your age
no friend oh

tommy hits those apartments up
they cannot love anything
you hear a sign
is this what you meant
when you wrote your sister

a chance you take
is they derride your wicked heart
i'm by your side
they don't understand what you do
so what for nor do you

tommy and dan
you can't hold hands
down your street
who cares you're gay
but it's your age
no friend oh

    General Comment:i tried hard haha some of the stuff is just too muddy to understand, which is pretty typical xiu xiu.

    this song is obviously about a grown man who falls in love with a young boy. totally heart-breaking.

    favorite line: "they don't understand what you do/so what for nor do you".

    this is my favorite song off of "women as lovers", too, so yeah, it was a labor of love.

    General Comment:It's probably best just to wait until the official release comes out, with lyrics and all.

    it's more
    will they "picks us apart" in Sodom
    they cannot love anything
    Lou Harrison is this what you meant
    when you wrote Young Caesar
    the chance you take as they derride
    your wicked heart, i'm by your side
    they don't understand what you do
    so what for nor do you
