lyrics

Had a fat fly buzzing round my head.
I waited till he landed on the window's edge.
He delicately scaled the screen and danced along the ledge
till I trapped him on the cold side of the glass instead.

He buzzed around pointlessly and banged his head all day.
I’ve killed half a dozen others of his kind this way.
I'm a spider and this is my black web
but it's not the only one that's hanging round your head.

I sit in one room, you sit in another.
Sleep with your back turned to me like a brother.
When I call you on it you swear that you're going to change
but you're crawling round the wrong side of a frozen window pane.

Once you took me in your arms and there I flew.
My soul was free but chose to be at home with you.
Now I feel your hands on me but where are you?
You've flown, moved on, you've long been gone, and I'm lost too --

until I find a random thread, and start to roll and weave.
Unravelling the past, the heart I wear upon my sleeve.
From them I make a story of a war with no reprieve
that fills the sky with fire till there's no one left to grieve.

But you don't want to hear it, you insist we're doing fine
even as the ceiling caves with us still trapped inside
even as the sun falls and the night is still as death
even as the air thins so that you can't catch your breath.

I take the sofa and you take our bed.
Staring at the ceiling like a man already dead.
Swear I hear you calling every time I pass your way
but the signal's breaking and the words keep fading...

about

The Harvey Girls Portland, Oregon

Melissa Rodenbeek and Hiram Lucke formed The Harvey Girls in August of 2003 in Lawrence, Kansas. The group combine the... melodies of bubblegum pop with experimentation in sound. Their music stands as a cross between Prince Paul's production work and the songs of the Shangri-Las. The couple moved to Portland, OR, in 2006 where they remain. Josh Millard joins the couple in their live shows. ... more
