But Genevieve

Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

Oh, I thought it was 'you're lovely' - but I do have a notoriously tin ear.

After a couple of listens on headphones here's my first pass, building on iesus's start above


Genevieve I think you love me
Genevieve I've made you mine
Genevieve I think you love me
But Genevieve it's time

In all the [phases? faces? spaces?]
But Genevieve it's time

Genevieve you know I love you
I know you've made me mine
Genevieve in all the [phases? faces? spaces?]
It's time

Genevieve I think you love me
I've made you cry, I've made you mine
Genevieve I think you love me
But Genevieve it's time

It's time
It's just the time

Genevieve, for all the [phases? faces? spaces?]
for all the time
Too many [phases? faces? spaces?]
It's time

Genevieve I think you love me
I've made you cry, I've made you mine
Genevieve I think you love me
But Genevieve it's time

:notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: I guess you have it nailed.
And I have a suggestion to make as to what it is about.
Genevieve, a saint and heroess to Paris, was known for her welfare, her caring for ths sick and poor.
I'll interpret Her as symbol for Paris which I'll in turn take as symbol for the EU here.
Here's a Briton singing a farewell to a symbol of fro the EU then, (That nursed the sick and poor, wales, Northern Ireland, former coal- and industrial regions the Tories and banks didn't even consider worth a coup de grâce?)
Could this be the long awaited comment of a political animal to Brexit?
Wrapping this up in a lovesong would be a very eldritch thing to do! ;D

Still a bit short, innit? :wink:
I don't know if you were wrong, but I fail to see the point of being right.
