about

Written and Recorded by Former Friends of Young Americans for the album "Love and Vitriol".

lyrics

There's a certain solace in a summer's rain
even if it ruins your picnic;
a kind of contentment in things undone,
unspent, unspoiled, unspoken;
in tongue-tied moments,
moments that were not moments
that could not be taken back.

I thank god for peace apathetic,
for days not flattened just off the curb.
I tell regret: lightning didn't strike,
cancer didn't come.
We put the fire out.
He couldn't find the bullets.
All limbs intact.
All limbs intact.

You say how can you happy with
the what-could,
could-have-been-worse-than-was?
those of us still floating on balsa shards
of busted piano, cradle, dance floor
don't complain of splinters.

Those of us still floating on balsa shards
of busted piano, cradle, dance floor
don't complain of splinters.
