BRAND NEW & BROKENHEARTED

Hollis and Morris
Was the center of the universe
Back In 1993
For kids like you and me
They say money makes the world go round
But honey, they’re tearing this city down
Now we’re trying to find a reason to go downtown
Do our memories mean nothing to them?
Guess they’ve never been to Hollis & Morris
He hit me, it felt like a chorus

Bye bye blue skies, hello blues
Memory Lane’s got the wrecking crew
A fool and their city are soon parted
We’re brand new and brokenhearted

Murphy and me up at Marsh’s door
Late afternoon, early ‘94
With a jury of 21 piers
Chaz Rules, The Freaks and No Damn Fears

There was thus flat where Mel lived with Tim and Wayne
And one had Peter, Tracy, Seb, Eve and Gary and Peter again
Back when there were less questions than answers
I’m watching Jenny & Chris singing I Am the Cancer
Down at Hollis & Morris
It’s like that building was put there for us

Bye bye blue skies, hello blues
Memory Lane’s got the wrecking crews
A fool and their city are soon parted
We’re brand new and brokenhearted
Yes we are

Now I’m standing down at Argyle and Sackville
Man, I could use an Advil

Bye bye blue skies, hello blues
Where’s the next address?
The new tattoo?
That wraparound corner now dearly departed
We’re brand new and brokenhearted
