Heart Attack Summer

from by golden curtain



It's a heart attack summer,
the waves aren't even for surfers,
the sky goes dark, the wolves turn blue
and the beach is made of murder

You broke down all winter,
dreamt of sharks and boulevards and hearts
And then you got better

You can't remember if she was a dancer,
or if she just wanted to be one
She'd keep the lights on in the candle shop
disappear down the coastline

She never called again
She never moved back to Queensland
You heard somewhere's she's a chef
throwing knives across crowded kitchens

There's a juggler in the shadows
there's an actor that's gone missing
there's regret across the shipyard
and that's the way it's always been

The fortune teller's got nothing
says that's the way it is
says there's no more magic or miracles or rescues
and your heart's going to stay like this
