Her brow: pensive
Her knees: away
I stand beside her
But I look straight ahead
And dissolve
Before the night began Herring Street
A book from school kept me wandering
This may take a while
I might never see this through
They said that chapter four repeats itself
Along with three so far
Where are you tonight?
It's crowded at the Sokol Club
And tonight will be the same
I want her walk, to scream her confidence above me
I try to hide my thoughts
I stare blankly through her face
This seems so senseless
She sees me breathing
My hands are crippled clay
This could have been different
I hear myself saying again

    General CommentGood song. To me it sounds like someone that is too shy to tell someone how they feel about them.

    General Comment‘Amorous’, strongly moved by love, especially sexual love.
    I think this song reminds me of sleeping with someone for the first time, perhaps even losing your virginity. The people seem young (a book from school kept me wandering), and I get the feeling either things went badly (This seems so senseless) and either it did not happen like the narrator wanted, too rushed, too soon (This could have been different), or it was not the right person (where are you tonight?)
    It is a damn melancholy mix of desire and this kind of self-disgust (I stare blankly through her face.)
    I think it is beautiful. One of my favourite of theirs. As for Bauhaus? Design art desire?
    It reminds me of just simply ruining something...something really good.
