about

A song about the trifecta of 1) being dumped 2) moving flat and 3) the festival fringe coming to town. A real treat for the English teachers out there.

lyrics

Capo 4
{Em A}
Take me out of my mind
Smile in my photographs
I've been so down
{Em A C}
I forgot I used to own this town
I forgot I used to own this town
{F}
I forgot I used to own this

I've gotta reclaim this place
Before the strangers move in
But the chicken soup makes me sicker
And I don't know where to begin
Did I ever really know you?
You seem to have gone before you got in
You say acedia's not evil it's just a
Minor cardinal sin
It's just a minor cardial sin
It's just a myocardial

{Em A} x3 {Em F}
I'll prob'bly hate it in the morning
I'll have forgotten by the evening time

{C Em G B}
It's hard to bear a grudge you can't remember
{Em C G B}
It's hard to hate a man you don't recall
{Em C G B}
But I know it'll still be mid-September
{Em C G B}
Before I feel I'm back on top of it all

Try on all my clothes
Nothing fits for more than a week
They won't stop digging the roads up
And the pipes have started to leak
We are standing in the doorways
We are huddled from the rain
We used to love this weather and I know
We can love it again
Yeah, I know
We can love it again
Oh, we can love again

I'll prob'bly hate it in the morning
I'll have forgotten by the evening time

It's hard to bear a grudge you can't remember
It's hard to hate a man you don't recall
But I know it'll still be mid-September
Before I feel I'm back on top
Before I feel I'm back on top
Before I feel I'm back on top
Of it all.
