"Oh Nikita" as written by and Michael Lynch Kevin May....
I was meant for the movies
I was meant to be great
but somewhere in the confusion
I was left in the shade

oh nikita
come get me
I’m almost 30

I have lived with devotion
dignity and panache
I stoked the fire within me
the fire turned me to ash

oh nikita
come get me
I’m almost
thirty

    General CommentAccording to the band, this is based on a snippet of Leonard Cohen graffiti:

    MARITA
    PLEASE FIND ME
    I AM ALMOST 30.

    But, as they say, "Leonard's whores are classier than ours."
