The Record Store Clerk Has Broken Your Heart

lyrics

You shivered once and he kissed you like a hot knife, and you wondered where he could've hidden all of your life. Then he left you for a girl he'd barely met, although I'm sure he'd bet they'd make a smashing pair. But oh, come back to me, dear! His company, dear, has left you broken. We'll get a bottle of cheap brandy and drink until we can scarcely stand at all. He'd move on the shyest girls, and they'd take cover behind the rows of Modern English and the would-be lovers tired quickly of Duke and 'Trane, Ornette and Etta James, and moved on to Marvin Gaye, it seemed like every day. But oh, come back to me, dear! His company, dear, has left you broken. We'll get a bottle of cheap brandy and drink until we can scarcely stand at all.

about

Building Rockets Austin, Texas

Building Rockets is occasionally a band and occasionally a bedroom recording project.

It sounds a little like The Pixies and Wilco covering Fountains of Wayne songs while “Abbey Road” plays in the background.
