A mistake on the part of nature
You're so fabled, so fair, just sit anywhere
I've pencil sketched the scene
It's feeling Byzantine

Mistakes on the part of nature
The living proof of what they're calling love
On certain sideway streets
Where things that don't match meet

A mistake on the part of nature
You are a tall glass, a blast from the past
Yeah, things were simpler then
You ask exactly when

A mistake on the part of nature
It's forgive and move on
Won't wear my Sunday suit to walk that street
That would feel Byzantine

Silhouette, tell me a tall tale, go
Shout it out
Silhouette, shout it from the top
Sweet talk, sweet talk
Your sweet talk, sweet talk

Amnesia becomes ambition
Ambition becomes a new sort of
Charming simplicity
Like always Byzantine

A mistake on the part of nature
It's forgive and move on
Won't wear my Sunday suit to walk that street
That would feel Byzantine

Silhouette, tell me a tall tale, go
Shout it out
Silhouette, shout it from the top
Sweet talk, sweet talk
Your sweet talk, sweet talk

Silhouette, tell me a tall tale, go
Shout it out
Silhouette, shout it from the top
Sweet talk, sweet talk
Your sweet talk, sweet talk

Makes me think of a TV sitcom or game show theme song.

TERRIBLE!

New Pornographers...?
I certainly prefer 70's porn, if you give me the choice!
PS
The cover is just plain dumb!
Unbelievable how some bands limit their sales!
Soooo stupid!!!

I agree and like ABBA as long as you put what you are listening into context; it is quite enjoyable.
I like the song. I saw them live about a month ago and it was a great show.

There is something off-setting about this song...
Not my normal fare and I'm almost reluctant to admit that it grows on me—one of those songs that interrupts what I'm working on and makes me check the playlist.  Oh, already rated—guess I still like it then.

hmm pretty standard New Porno song.
This song title brought to you by the Department of Redundancy Department.
