The Jazz Butcher Lyrics Baltic

Lyrics

Baltic
Thinking in squares in binocular time
Trailing admirers who all look too young for her
Talking, in French in unvitable restaurants
Keeping a lost age alive with her perfume

Chorus:

Better than you becoming moonlight
Better than you becoming moonlight anytime
The stars become your eyes
The stars become your eyes

This night won't end
This night that is not a night
Will never end

Her glamour, her scandal, her dreams and her smokescreens
The church and the veil and the old Russian cigarettes
Always impeccable, never in daylight
The pale sun of midnight was all that she wanted

Chorus

This night won't end
Not this night

She drove me one night to the edge of the forest
To show me the airstrip her grandfather left her
The buildings were empty, we stood on the runway
Dreaming of lights that would never burn out

Better than you becoming moonlight
Better than you becoming moonlight anytime
Oh, better than you becoming moonlight
Better than you becoming moonlight anytime

The stars become your eyes
The stars become them very well
The stars become your eyes
The stars become them very well
The stars become your eyes

Waiting For The Love Bus
There's a clean, simple sound to a lot of this that Condition Blue detractors might appreciate. I'm ten years older now than when I made Bath, and right now, after all that morbid stuff, it only really feels like about three. There's rockin' shit and there's a big ballad or two and some weird little pop songs and a nice family sing-along about penguins. I hope you like it.

Insight

The Butcher Says..
I'm not sure where this came from, and I'm vaguely resentful of the fact. I suppose it imagines itself to well fin-de-siecle. Hey! We're so doomed we've learned to love it.
