Flashes (Hey Amen)

from The Cost Of Doing Business by Graham Wright



I remember it in flashes
It’s coming back to me in waves
I think that there was dancing...
I think that there was dancing
I know that there was drinks
I'm pretty sure that
When I woke up in her bedroom
She said “hey you, time to say goodbye”
She said some loves are like album cuts
But this love
This ones more like a b side

It’s starting to come into focus
Next think I know I’m walking home
I left the keys to my apartment in a cab
I guess I hoped you’d be alone
Back in those days when I showed up at your door like that
You’d usually laugh and let me in
You’d say “some loves are like scenic routes
But this love, this one’s more like a short cut”

You were always saying shit like that
It used to make me laugh, I never took it seriously
In the morning we’d regret it, but
We’d not regret it that much
We’d usually do it again, and again

It just went on like that
Party after party, night after night
We kind of floated through the city
Hell, we kind of floated through our twenties
Leaving what we left behind behind
And it's not like it was Everest or whatever
It's more like we were always gonna get where we were going
Me, I remember it as Friday nights
All lit up like the streetcar lights
It was impossible to know what we were doing

Or was it easy for you?
Hey, amen!

I remember it in flashes
It sort of comes back when it comes
I think that we were happy
I know that we were young
