lyrics

drinking in an english garden was never like this
butterflies ain't got nothin' on a cottonmouth kiss
and we don't need chemistry textbooks to isolate the primitive fix
we just mix and we mix and we mix

and the water turns white and the little yellow light
at the back of the oven of the oven glows bright
tell me did i catch your name
it got lost between the pillows and burned up in the flame

and gone are the lovers to the accidental night
i didn't even notice they were falling out of sight
the sun in the window means another broken morning has won
wasn't that fun

and summer was an endless surface for the skimmer to skate
and the rust in the wheelwell was only a glimmer of fate
but empty pockets at the end of the season
has got us down to rubbing two sticks
for our kicks for our kicks for our kicks

and the water turns white and the little yellow light
at the back of the oven of the oven glows bright
tell me did i catch your name
it got lost between the covers or burned up in the flame

and gone are the lovers to the accidental night
i didn't even notice they were falling out of sight
and all the little thrills and the singalong rhythm is gone

and i don't know how you carry on, but you can count on this
whatever you surrender you will surely surely miss
the light in the window means the morning has come
and i think i stayed a little too long i think i stayed a little too
long i know i stayed a little too long now that summer is gone
