You got the hard consolation prize,
For having to survive,
Having to survive,

Every Night following the end,
Having to survive,
Now you are just friends and,

People insisted on telling you,
What a great couple you had been,
They had insisted on telling you over again,

You walk through the wind,
You walked on through (?),
With thoughts you'd be seeing her again,

You walk through the wind,
Through the night again,
But now your just a tired old man,

People insisted on telling you,
What a great couple you had been,
They insisted on telling you over again,

You got the hard consolation prize,
For having to survive,
Having to survive,

Every night following the end,
Having to survive,
And now you are just friends and,

People insisted on telling you,
What a great couple you had been,
They insisted on telling you over and over and over again.

    He "got the hard consolation prize"

    "People insisted on telling you
    What a great couple you had been
    They insisted upon telling you
    over and over and over again"

    General CommentThis smarts especially if you have just ended a high profile relationship-for example, splitting up of friends and being the subject of gossip.
    "The hard consolation prize" is one of the most elaborate and profound contradictons ever ever. This song is not only charmingly chirpy for Doiron's work, which is fun, but for that it is all the more brutal.
