The only thing I remember about this song is that one of the lines is: “That’s the way it goes…I guess.”

How do you not know?  It’s your song.  You could have waited until you knew for sure.  People always hurrying.  I used to be that way.  Time was that I’d walk into a saloon and as soon as someone looked at me funny I’d be fightin’ and sliding the dude all the way down the bar.  But now I have patience.  Now if I go into a saloon and someone looks at my funny I sneak up behind him and poison his whisky.  Then I sit over by the piano and play poker until the guy dies.  And sometimes just before he dies I look up and say:  “Say, that fella don’t look too good.”  That’s how I became the town doctor.


Video now, lyrics after the jump (that’s right, I’m changing it up).

P.M. Dawn – Set Adrift on Memory Bliss

The camera pans the cocktail glass,
behind a blind of plastic plants;
I found the lady with the fat diamond ring.
then you know I can’t remember a damn thing.
I think it’s one of those de ja vu things,
or a dream that’s tryin’ to tell me something.
Or will I ever stop thinkin’ about it.
I don’t know, I doubt it.
Subterranean by design,
I wonder what I would find if I met you,
let my eyes caress you,
until I meet the thought of Missess Princess Who?
Often wonder what makes her work.
I guess I’ll leave that question to the experts,
assuming that there are some out there.
they’re probably alone, solitaire.
I can remember when I caught up
with a pastime intimate friend.
She said, “Bet you’re probably gonna say I look lovely,
but you probably don’t think nothin’ of me.”
She was right, though, I can’t lie.
She’s just one of those corners in my mind,
and I just put her right back with the rest.
That’s the way it goes, I guess.

Baby you send me
Set adrift on memory bliss of you

Careless whisper from a careless man,
a neutron dance for a neutron fan;
marionette strings are dangerous things,
I thought of all the trouble they bring.
An eye for an eye, a spy for a spy,
rubber bands expand in a frustrating sigh.
Tell me that she’s not dreaming.
She’s got an ace in the hole,
it doesn’t have meaning.
Reality used to be a friend of mine,
’cause complete control, I don’t take too kind.
Christina Applegate, you gotta put me on.
Guess who’s piece of the cake was Jacc Bond
She broke her wishbone and wished for a sign.
I told her whispers in my heart were fine.
what did she think she could do?
I feel for her, I really do.
And I stared at the ring finger on her hand,
I wanted her to be a big PM Dawn fan,
but I had to put her right back with the rest.
That’s the way it goes, I guess.

Baby you send me…
Set adrift on memory bliss of you
