Interlude

          Interlude

Keep your pink flamingoes
Keep your lantern-bearing dwarves
Let’s just call it even
And let this romance run its course

It was just another interlude
Something that you did
When you were just a kid

You’ll vacation down in Mexico
Just to get it off your mind
You’ll get a tan, you’ll find a man
Before you know it you’ll be feeling fine

It was just another interlude
Something that you did
When you were just a kid

Call room service, get some food
And make a few long distance calls
Turn up the lights, turn up the radio
Lie on the bed and stare at the walls

Take a walk along the beach
Watch the moon pull out the tide
Walking back your hands are full
Of broken things it leaves behind

It was just another interlude
Something that you did
When you were just a kid

You didn’t know any better
You didn’t know any better
You didn’t know any better
