about

Peter Mulvey is known to cover this song.

lyrics

Your car will emerge through explosions of birds
And huge half-truths and tiny words
I was born to sift this sand
And kiss the darkness where it stands

All around the underworld
Fame is just a pretty girl
So sing her songs
But not too long

I am not the boss of me
At least as far as I can see
I'd like to bleed across the sky
The comet age has passed me by

And left me in the underworld
Fame is just a pretty girl
So sing her songs
But not too long

And I wouldn't want to be there
When they pull the veil away
To see this world for what it is and what it means today
Isn't it a pity that you never know forever 'til it's not
And this is not
This is not forever
This is not forever

There's an old friend that I had
Who just got tired of being sad
She packed and moved this afternoon
From Jackson Street up to the moon

Looking down upon the underworld
Fame is just a pretty girl
So sing her songs
But not too long
Not too long
