lyrics

No I can't stand to be so damn bitchy
but your antics make me kind of twitchy
all too clearly something strange and sketchy's
happening here.

No I don't want to cramp your swagger
but when it's seven you start to stagger
and on toward eleven you look so haggard
I feel fear.

A shot of regret, the scent of flop sweat
as the evening keeps falling apart
our friends, sympathetic or outright contemptuous
their stares like a knife in my heart.

Yes here's my thousandth stern iteration
my bag's packed for an extended vacation
I tell you firmly, with no hesitation
I'm moving on.

Then you grab my waist and you kiss me
you taste like smoke and potent whiskey
and drinking from you makes me so damn dizzy
that I drown.

A bite of despair, your hand in my hair
as morning arrives like a freight train
my steely resolve's melted into a blob
and I'm certain I'm going insane.

Then I awake and stare at you
your sad, still handsome face
knowing well that I must leave
yet frozen into place.
Oh I wonder where's my underwear
should I leave you one last kiss?
Oh I wonder whether if you'll ever
love me -- love you -- love us
more than you love this.

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
