"Fascination" as written by and Eleanor Jackson Benedict Langmaid....
It's been seven hours long
And you're shadow still hangs on
You've been two weeks gone
So tonight I'll follow you home
There are so many different ways
Of collecting all the strays
The ones that get away

Oh, fascinations, we play
New sensations
Oh, fascination, it's been in my
Frustration
It's been in my frustrations
And I haven't got the patience

These sheets are still warm
This bed is our only home
We make arrangements over the phone
Where has all the conversation gone?
There are so many different ways
Of collecting all the strays
The ones that get away

Oh, fascinations, we play
New sensations
Oh, fascination,
It's been in my, frustration
It's been in my, frustrations
And I haven't got the patience

Frustrations, sensations, and fascinations, and fascinations
Frustrations, sensations, and fascinations, and fascinations

Oh, fascination,
New sensation [repeat 2x]
Oh, fascinations, we play
New sensations
Oh, fascination,
It's been in my, frustration
It's been in my, frustrations
And I haven't got the patience

    General CommentI'm not 100% on these lyrics, since they're not submitted anywhere, so I had to play it by ear.

    General CommentI think maybe it's "where has OUR conversation gone?"
    Maybe?

    General CommentI definitely hear it as 'where has all the conversation gone?'.

    Anyways, about the songs meaning.. seems like the person the song is about is obsessive over a particular person, a little too fascinated by them that they can't think of anyone else, even though there are others around.

    Or something. =]

    General CommentTo me the song sounds as if the person singing the song has just been left by an old partner or something. They mention that there are "different ways of collecting all the strays" probably in reference to losing whoever had been gone for 2 weeks. So instead they follow them home and end up making arrangements to sleep with them. This is in reference to the "bed still being warm" and wondering "where has all the conversation gone".

    So although they have old fascinations but crave new sensations I think it's a bit of nostalgia as well as wanting something more but they need something to get through "now" and are willing to settle for this purely sexual relationship. Hence, they "don't have the patience".

    That's my take anyways...

    General CommentI think that this songs means she broke up with someone and now misses them. It's "old fascinations" meaning the previous relationships. And then she starts to question the previous things like talking on the phone and the arrangements they made/plans for the future. When its "new sensations", its like getting the feeling back again for them.

    General CommentMy interpretation is that an ex uses her again, she regrets it and doesn't want anymore but still ends up doing it again and then it makes her angry with herself for not saying no.

    General CommentOld fascinations
    We crave new sensations
    Old fascination is feeding my frustration
    It's feeding my frustrations
    And I haven't got the patience

    it makes me think about the thing called lesbian-bed-death...

    General Commentthe first time i heard it, it made me think of a long relationship that were bored of and there are all these temptations out there ..or you actually have a bf and leave him for all those temptations and realize that once ur single, all ur having is short flings that drift away and you run out of patience to find something stable.eventually you end up going back to the "old facination"

    General CommentI think this song was written closely after 'Quicksand' so I'm wondering whether its about the same 'friend' of hers she had 'moments' with...
