Phantom Bride by Erasure

I'm feeling a bit hormonal and depressive today, so it's a good idea for me to put in the ol' Erasure cd. Here's what I'll be listening to:


She was a shy girl from the lonely street
She had no job to do and no friends to meet
She'd sit in silence in her rented room
Dream of her childhood and invented truths

And in her mind she'd drift away
A secret place to steal away

Don't you cry, don't you cry
Let me wipe away the tears from your eyes
Don't you cry, don't you cry
Let me wipe away the tears from your eyes

He was a good boy from the upside of town
Said he could treat her right, said he could win her round
Her morning sickness and the kick inside
The phantom kisses of the phantom bride

And in her mind she'd drift away
A secret place to steal away

Don't you cry, don't you cry
Let me wipe away the tears from your eyes
Don't you cry, don't you cry
Let me wipe away the tears from your eyes

I love Erasure. It's been a while since I really listened to it though. It's the best of upbeat fun music and sadness all rolled into one.

My favorite song of Erasure's is "Fingers and Thumbs (Cold Summer's Day)" (and the video is really good, too):

...Gone and blown it all
And then you say, 'this can't be happening to me'
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
The thrill of the chase then it's gone
Only the hurt to prove that it ever went on

And life is a wonderful thing
When you're humming the words to a love song
Do what you wanna do, be who you want to be

When I'm in your arms I'm strong
There's nowhere I'd rather be
We shine for liberty, life and the pursuit of pleasure

I'm feeling a bout of hormones possibly coming on as well. Yes, that's right - even though we're a whole country apart, we're still connected PSYCHICALLY. Or maybe hormonally. Why do both of those words look like they're spelled incorrectly? Whatever - I'm so not looking them up. I want M&Ms like you would not BELIEVE.
