Being Beige

"A hot rocker that [producer] Howard [Willing] professed love for. "Ok," I said from beneath thick grandma wraparounds. "We'll try it." And like all those riff songs, they go around and around till the thrill is gone and then someone suggests (might have been me), "shouldn't there be, like, a chorus?" Eventually I'd tack one on, and it was good. Let there be light." -BC, SP Nexus 2014-04-01

 

Lyrics

I don't love you
For what it's worth
So if you're leaving, can you hurt
Cherry blossom, this is goodbye
Come here lately and you'll fly
When they say what it's worth
The world tells you first
Then you know where to hurt
The world's on fire, so
The world's on fire, so
The world's on fire, so
Have you heard?

Lover let me please
Fall on down your knees
Lover let me please be the one
Know the prayers to make
For lovers made to fade
And when you swore to wait and only burst
The world's on fire, so
The world's on fire, so
The world's on fire, so
Have you heard?

Yes, I loved you
As a matter of fact
Your furs are wrapped up
And that's that

Lover let me please
Fall on down your knees
You once made me smile when you'd stray
The world's on fire, so
The world's on fire, so
The world's on fire, so
Have you heard?
The world's on fire
The world's on fire
The world's on fire
Have you heard?

Lover have you breached
To make for your release?
So I'll no longer err by your side
What's to hide?

The world's on fire
The world's on fire
Until I'm ready on Monday
The world's on fire
Until I'm ready on Tuesday
The world's on fire
Until I'm ready on Wednesday
The world's on fire
Until I'm ready on Thursday
The world's on fire
Until I'm ready on Friday
The world's on fire
Until I'm ready on Saturday
The world's on fire
Until I'm ready on Sunday
