Momus, Where Are You?

lyrics

Momus, where are you?
I fear we're drifting apart
I put you in a box
next to the Secret Stars
and now it's breaking my heart

maroon cordouroy pants
the way we used to dance!

Seagull, my music maker
how I long to feel your grooves
instead, you're oceans away
and I'm daydreaming a day
when I can play with you

a dive diner romance
just give me one more chance

maroon cordouroy pants
the way we used to dance!

I want a snowflake on the tip of my tongue
make me an ice palace escape from the sun
let's have a dance party in the living room
cowboy hats and purple boas
dress up impromptu
sale through garages and barns all acroos the land
to find the cutest outfits for our five-piece band
we'll get lost in the dark under dimly lit stars
or drink cheap wine on the porch
because we don't do the bars

don't do the bars

Parker Posey at a glance
yeah, a pop culture trance

a dive diner romance
just give me one more chance

so fly me home
where I won't be alone
got my reasons to go:

to see my mom and dad
and the friends I had

and my lovelorn stereo!
