Sixty seconds to fall in love

Make way for another heat wave
Central City’s fallen quiet now that your friends are on the run
Most obsessions come undone
Now that The House Across The Lake is calling
She’s beautiful, she’ll just betray you, just like Carol’s wayward charms
An old flame’s back and you’re soon disarmed.

Just give me one quick minute to fall in love
I’ll give you sixty seconds to hide
So give me one from the top and another five
And we’ll multiply and the heat wave turns into a meltdown

Hands up for another heat wave
Another scene for the kids and teachers and the students in their halls
The posters and the clothes will follow
As it’s picked up by the Sunday papers
Journalists with their cosy networks as their deadlines fall like axes
Editors and demographics

Just give me one quick minute to fall in love
You gave me sixty seconds hypnotised
So give me one from the top and another five
And we’ll multiply and the passers-by call it a

Meltdown
Hanging on the coattails of another meltdown
They’ll call you on it every time, it’s just a meltdown
It’s a peer review of your social choices
From lonely fashionistas’ echoing voices

Hands up for another heat wave
Martha’s in and her friends are vandals
And they love call and response
A crossover like Irving Berlin or the anarchists from the 1960s
Charles comes in with a situationist first post-modern fanzine
He’s a rebel worker, sound contributor
Like disco-era Johnny Wilder
Played in clubs and he joined the army
And from London up to Spain, from the Czech Republic to oh Jamaica
Tell me who’s in for another heat wave?
The students go off on their holidays
The festival shut down
A forgotten face in a forgotten seaside town

Just give me one quick minute to fall in love
I’ll give you sixty seconds to hide
So give me one from the top and another five
And the hangers on and the passers-by…
