lyrics

I called you over
to see my projections
for going to Cuba this year
Seems with all of your big complications
it's our brinkmanship that I fear

But you've got style
and you've got taste
well you've got it all
And what with all of that clout
you keep pushing me out
and you're standing so tall

I wandered over
to see what the fuss
with the hipsters was doing outside
It seems the yuppies
have somehow outdone me
while taking us all for a ride

But as it's still night
I can't get enough light
just to look at them right
And as it's still night
I just can't look them in the eyes

Holding out for the distance of dawn
I wander on and on
Marble heads with their noses worn off
are kissing paragons
Columns crack but they never grow back
The hand of time slaps all artifacts
I get nostalgic for ways that the world as we know it has not ever known (X2)

Well they've got style
and they've got taste
Oh, well they've got it all
And what with all of that clout
They keep pushing me/us out
and they're standing so tall
Standing so tall (X3)

I get nostalgic for ways that the world as we know it has not ever known

Old pals from the infamous "Poutine Circuit", the dynamic duo decided it wise to form a hot new teen combo. The band is now poised to bring their smooth adult contemporary and tiki-infused sounds to the bowling alleys and seedy cocktail lounges of North America. ... more
