LYRICS

GIRL IN THE MONDRIAN DRESS

 

The girl wearing the Mondrian dress,

The prettiest thing un-to impress,

Wearing the colours red, yellow, blue,

The black lines accentuate the shape of you.

We'd listen to cassettes of your NME hits,

Go sneaking after dark with your cigarettes,

But our time was cut short at seventeen,

It's left me wondering what might have been.

 

But...

 

I've a picture, I've got a picture,

Of you shaking around to those 80's sounds,

But…

I've got that picture, that random picture of you.

 

 

The girl wearing the Mondrian dress,

Where is she now? Can only guess,

From landline Phones and VHS Tapes,

Arcade machines and being out till late,

So I'm leaving here, getting out of this place,

There's only so much Nostalgia I can take but…

 

I've a picture, a random picture,

Of you shaking around, to those 80's sounds

But...

I've got that picture, that random picture of you.

 

(I wonder if you're running around, running around,

Running around with the same old crowd)

 

I've got that picture, that random picture,

Of you shaking around to those 80's sound, but...

I've got that mental picture of you.
