The Calculation

5 posts in this topic

You went into the kitchen cupboard

Got yourself another hour and gave

Half of it to me

We sat their looking at the faces

Of the strangers in the pages

Until we knew them mathematically

They were in our minds

Until forever

But we didn't mind

We didn't know better

So we made our own computer

Out of macaroni pieces

And it did our thinking

While we lived our lives

It counted up our feelings

And divided them up even

And it called our calculation

Perfect love

Didn't even know

That love was bigger

Didn't even know

Didn't even know that love was so, so

Hey hey hey hey

Hey this fire, hey this fire

I'm burning us up

Hey this fire, hey this fire

I'm burning us

Oh, oo oo oo, oo oo oo oo

So we made the hard decision

And we each made an incision

Past our muscles and our bones

Our hearts were little stones

Pulled 'em out they weren't beating

And we weren't even bleeding

As we lay them on our granite counter top

We beat 'em up against each other

We beat 'em up against each other

We struck 'em hard against each other

We struck 'em so hard, so hard til they sparked

Hey this fire, hey this fire

I'm burning us up

Hey this fire, hey this fire

I'm burning us up

Hey this fire, hey this fire

I'm burning us

Oh, oo oo oo, oo oo oo oo

Oo oo oo oo oo oo

This is often the first song I play for Regina newbies... it is 'accessible', is a good introduction to Regina's brilliant use of metaphor, and is very catchy..

I get it. It's kind of Poppy Beatle-y. Like 'She Love's You', which is great. And that warms them up for deeper Beatle Regina with 'Tomorrow Never Knows' or, '20 years of Snow'

She's very Beatle like that.
