lyrics

Airwaves

I heard it late in the evening,
thought that I was alone
I heard it down in the courtyard
Playing 'round on my phone
It's all about the suggestions and the subtleties
I am future's fool, the antiquity

Old fashioned, ain't what it used to be...

Now my radio dial is missing two front teeth
Did someone punch them out or did we forget to eat?
All these goddamn celebrities, who can't even read
I'm going make you believe in me, just wait and...see

Old fashioned, ain't what it used to be

When I lay down, hear myself again
On the airwaves, postmeridian
Then I look around, and find that you aren't there
I think a radio station just went off the air

Old fashioned, ain't what it used to be

I came upon the Prudential and the Hancock tower
They signify that I'm home, at this dusky hour
An angel and an archangel Michael at the gate
Of our city frequencies that crackle at eight

And they know when it's raining, if it's raining
And they know if it's sunny 'cause we share it

When I lay down, hear myself again
On the airwaves, postmeridian
Then I look around, and found that you aren't there
I think a radio station just went off the air

Old fashioned, ain't what it used to be
Old fashioned, ain't what it used to be

In the stillness,
of the evening

In the stillness,
of the evening
