Lyrics

This is one I wrote during the season and didn't think was really worthy of submission. But in August? EVERYTHING MUST GO SALE! And I felt like being melodramatic today.


Even now, with 80 million in the bank
After way too many plastic surgeries
Even now I wake up crying in the middle of the night
When I think about the tour of 1980

And even now, I should probably let it go
After 30 years of Freudian therapy
Even now I see the places where maybe I'm to blame
Threatening the border was a big mistake

Even now, when I turn on the tube
I see that orange dude
so aggressive and so rude with that interview
Even now, when I'm still peddling schlock
It's not exactly Bach
or even The 4 Tops
But it's all I've got
Even now.

You captured the mood very well on this one. (I had missed reading that article before now - so thanks for that, it's great.) I like the August going-out-of-business style jingle sale idea... time to look through the back of the store.
