about

It's no secret that The Great Gatsby has always been my favorite book, ever since I first read it in 1995. There's something romantic and tragic about it, so delusional and grandiose in the way these characters blunder through life. I've never watched any of the screen adaptions and I am not sure I ever will - I like my own versions of Gatsby and Daisy. They are old friends at this point.

lyrics

all those charming things to live for,
and I am just the bad egg.
from germany to oxford to penniless,
she was always too beautiful and well-bred.

and the fall air is pinching at my nose
the party’s on temporary hiatus
and I like to imagine that when I am gone
someone will notice.

but they’ll forget me by next spring, maybe sooner,
‘cause these are fickle friends.
one last hurrah for the summer,
and beautiful girls with long tan legs.

such a short distance across the bay,
the green light, blinking, blinking, blinking,
she didn't call or come to the window last night
and now my determined hopes are finally sinking.

but they’ll forget me by next spring, maybe sooner,
‘cause these are fickle friends.
one last hurrah for the summer,
and beautiful girls with long tan legs.

and the house is tired with knowing she will never leave him;
it needs to rest a while.
so I think that I will go for a swim
and the leaves will fall and fall and fall in style…
