Safe in the Nostalgia Zone

lyrics

I'm drunk on the wine of an old love of mine
And the sweet singing rivers are intoxicating me
With the undiscovered mysteries of your skin

CHORUS
Safe in The Nostalgia Zone
Where no one has to be alone
Or remember why they came
Or where they've been

I could have been in the movies
But I went behind the scenes
It's hard to be off the cuff
When you don't have any sleeves

I could have been somebody else
Or lived inside my shadow self
It's hard to ride the ocean
When you're turning on the wheel

There's things I should have said
There's things I should have done
The numbers don't impress so much
When the sum of them is one

I'm drunk on the wine of an old love of mine
And the sweet singing rivers are intoxicating me
With the undiscovered mysteries of your skin

CHORUS
Safe in The Nostalgia Zone
Where no one has to be alone
Or remember how they came
Or where they've been

Live in double-jeapordy
With ourself as the enemy
It's hard to keep a simple mind
When you're drunk, too hot and sweet
I wish I knew the way on through
The worlds outside of time
I'm trapped in sticky metaphors
Like some twisted nursey rhyme

This probably makes no sense
We're never in the present tense
It's hard to cut the whole thing loose
When you don't know how to breathe

I'm drunk on the wine of an old love of mine
And the sweet singing rivers are intoxicating me
With the undiscovered mysteries of your skin

CHORUS
Safe in The Nostalgia Zone
Where no one has to be alone
Or remember how they came
Or where they've been
