about

Here's one from the portastudio tape vault! Recorded while demoing songs for "With Love In Retrospect". Enjoy in all its glorious hiss.

lyrics

Playing around with every sound and delight
Figuring out what's going around and what's going right
Your constellations detonate every day
Every reflection's taking me so very far away

Come on don't you wanna play the game?
I don't really work out quite that way.
So long baby I'll be on my way
Cuz I'm turning over 45s today.

Your destination's bringing me down to my knees
While every station is dying to pay for the last disease
Killing me softly baby while you're doing fine
Heart on a string is all I can bring to you, Valentine

Come on don't you wanna play the game?
I don't really work out quite that way.
So long baby I'll be on my way
Cuz I'm turning over 45s today.
