about

I took "opera" with a grain of salt. Which is just as well, as I can't write opera, and if I could, I don't have the instruments to play it, and if I did I sure as hell can't -sing- it.

lyrics

Lost downtown in the burning summer
Wasted so many things all that year
Oh oh
But I guess that you'd know

After all that we've been through
Do you still feel the need to drag me down with you?
Oh oh
Well I guess so


But I told you
(and I heard you)
This is the last time
This is the last time
That I call after midnight

Headlights on an empty street
Smile like you never knew me
Like you don't see right through this charade

I'm not gonna pull you out this time
I'm not gonna be around
To see your bleeding heart on parade

I guess I'll just go missing
I can see it all shattered
Stained glas, got dirty
And then got swept away

I'm not playing this game
I was getting along fine
I wish you'd just leave
When I know you won't stay

Remember we were afraid of nothing
If you'd like some aid in deconstructing
Well keep looking
Keep looking

And the sirens
And the stars we can never see
And the silence
That follows us down the busy street
There's no hiding
From the sliding back into day
What do you like so much
About the night anyway?

Sunrise on an empty street
Smile like you never knew me
Like you don't see right through this charade
I'm not gonna pull you out this time
I'm not gonna be around
To see your bleeding heart on parade
So tell me why the light takes you apart
The patterns I knew are only traces
For all the world, I swear I'd love to make a new start
Where I don't always find truth in dark places

And I heard you
This is the last time I call
Call after midnight
