Rapt by the cagey moon that night
You and I took in the wistful light
On the hill where East Hall stood
I brushed along your womanhood
We riffed on Proust and Frankie O.
Bananafish and Vertigo

Clammy hands and open nerves
You drew me close to your curves
We looked down upon Walwood
I wondered if you understood
You adored My Life as a Dog
Wong Kar-Wai and The Dekalog

Once upon a time in ol’ Kalamazoo
I stood alone in my room with a view
I drank a lot and sang a Vine song or two
Now there’s nothing left of me and you
Do you ever think back, do you ever recall
Oh, oh, those moments lost to time at East Hall

Na na na na…

You leaned into me in your sober way
And said, “hold me forever and a day”
All I brought to my trite reply
Was wild mirth in ample supply

There’s something about this place
The fixed and gentle pace
There’s something about this place
Its provincial nice on the face
Its sins are bared in subtle ways
Its rainbow lies made out of grays
