lyrics

Eleanor went to Harvard,
So I went to dinner alone
The sun turned the windshield the color of ivory,
It seems all the birds are flying away from me
The geese in their Vs dont know how to feel lonely,
Like the girls in new clothes just pretend to feel pretty

But it isn’t about the city now, is it, darling?
You’re speaking in riddles, you’re speaking to no one
You surely aren’t listening, tall and scared on the subway
Tell them you’re French, fake an accent for sympathy
Say “I’m the daughter of summer, la fille d’ete,”
And they’ll smile like they’ve won the lottery

You’ll arrive and flash gold,
And they’ll know, they’ll know, they’ll know
Tell them about the summer of the disappearing cats
The children all crying with ice cream cone hands
And is it a secret if they don’t understand?
Either way I guess not, it won’t count in the end

And it wasn’t about New York, now, was it, darling?
You’re speaking in riddles, you’re speaking to no one
You surely aren’t listening, tall and scared on the subway
Tell them you’re French, fake an accent for sympathy
Say “I’m the daughter of summer, la fille d’ete,”
And they’ll smile like they’ve won the lottery
