Scenes From A Separation lyrics

We earmarked our August vacation
As a fine place to fall apart
And we heard that a trial separation
Was a quaint idea for a new start
Then the city approached like a bandit
My hands shook as they gripped the wheel
As if I'd always known there’s no place like home
To show you the way that you feel

A rainy afternoon in your bedroom
Clothes in two piles on the floor
One is labelled 'haute couture'
The other’s marked 'alms for the poor'
I'm just loitering, trying to look helpful
You offer two corners of the sheet
We fold over and over and over again
And then in the middle we meet

Now some days I feel like an engagement ring
Resting on the ocean floor
Yet others just like that same Glen Campbell record
Found in every second hand store
Right now I'm watching a drummer
Haul his drums into a bar
And deep down I'm secretly happy
That I play the harmonica

No, I'm not saying I'm lazy
I just take more time to digress
And I’ve more than three ways I empty my days
Now that you’re not around to impress
(I've more than three ways I empty my days
Now that you’re not around to impress)

Those fonding morning birds
They don't do things by thirds

Your voice sounds just like it's reading
From a birthday telegram
It says, 'You’re looking a little older'
And I say, 'That's funny, because I am'
Last year escaped by the window
And this year's going for a song
And the church bells, they're plagiarising
'Merrily we roll along'

No, we weren't together forever
But then, what the hell does that mean?
One person's lifetime, the history of mankind
Or the years since I turned seventeen?
(One person's lifetime, the history of mankind
Or the years since you turned seventeen)

Yeah, I was light headed, unfettered, and I falsely
Claimed to know the dimensions of love
I was prone to wild exaggeration
Saying things I had no concept of
Maybe love takes the form of a mountain
With no choice but forever to linger
Maybe love lives in a soap bubble
At the mercy of a child's finger

Each one comes with a little rainbow
Designed to hypnotise us
And I wouldn't trade one heart broken minute
For a year's worth of dull happiness

So I built myself another lifetime
Oh, how quick did the calendar grow
And right now I'm seven years wiser
Than I was twenty five years ago
I start to play with this cat on the footpath
And he's cleaning his head with his paw
And I know that you're gone so I'm moving on
Still, I know that you're worth mourning for

And I'm feeling just fine but I'm taking my time
'Cause I know that you're worth mourning for
