lyrics

She got inside my dream and walked me round the balustrades
I didn’t even have the time to praise her architraves
Though it seems rib vaulting I do anything she says
Rubbing brass and looking up her flying buttresses
She’s reading Pevsner

All along the watchtower we admired the crenellations
The gargoyles and the gambrel roof and cheeky imbrications
Trying to be intelligent I reached beyond my station
Fearing all the while another Prague defenestration
She’s reading Pevsner

We took to sipping coffee by the old segmented arch
Down among the scrollwork underneath the coquillage
Gorging out on gingerbread behind the colonnade
Beneath the Tuscan column my intentions were betrayed
She’s reading Pevsner
