Conversation (Outside a Costume Party)

lyrics

It was a beautiful night,
warm autumn air,
exactly the same as New York when I was there.

"Yeah, they're loading up air tanks
and shipping them in,
all so you can feel
that feeling again."

"Across bridges and borders
and highways and towns,
all for you, dear.
All for this feeling that you're feeling now..."

Listen, babe,
I know we're a thing, but don't start with me tonight.
Listen, babe,
I know we're a thing, but don't mess with me tonight.
You know I'm sensitive about the air.
Don't break my heart tonight.

And then the vampire said,
"If I could die, I'd happily come back as a cat.
Forget about poetry,
forget about love.
I'd be covered in fur
and I'd purr, I'd purr, and I'd purr!"

"Listen, babe,
I know all about your dreams, I can't handle them tonight.
Listen, babe,
I know we're a thing, but don't start with me tonight."

Listen, listen,
don't break my heart tonight.
