Wasp Summer - Wasp Summer - No Time For Compliments Now

from by A Headful Of Bees



This track comes from Wasp Summer's debut solo album 'Close as a Slow Dance' released on A Headful of Bees in May 2012.


We used to roll like tumbled gems
And like the sea we’d writhe
When you were young and strong
And I was young and lithe
We used to wreak public havoc
You’d wrench me around in the street
Take turns in wrecking each other
Die before calling defeat

What was I wearing last time we danced this way?
I remember it was white
It must have been our wedding night

All those hard nights only women can do alone
Hard nights men can only do in company
I wouldn’t bet the farm on your lasting charm
I wouldn’t buy another ticket in your lottery

Where were we the last time you held me so tenderly?I sat all night by your bed
You pulled me in and gave yourself to me

All those hard nights…

You were handsome, the devil
You were Red Lilith’s revenge
But there’s no time for compliments now
