Thompson Twins – Dirty Summer's Day lyrics

I have these secrets I keep to myself
But they escape and they run wild
Revenge is sweet or so I've been told
It just leaves a bitter taste behind
Yeah the roof is leaking, I don't give a damn
Yeah it's raining on my head
You took this sacred heart and sewed it to your sleeve
Then you left me for dead
See those yellow flowers nodding like fools
I want to destroy them, they remind me of you
(chorus)
I loved you madly
You went away
What a dirty trick to play
I may have loved you badly
That's what you say
Oh dirty summer's day
I found your stilettoes in my room yesterday
They were glowing in the dark
I was smiling as I threw them from the 42nd floor
Yeah this time you've gone too far
See those pretty stars in the heavens so blue
I want to destroy them, they remind me of you
(REPEAT CHORUS)
I was dreaming last night of stealing a gun
And shooting holes right through the sky
I was screaming and the were cowboys and showgirls on fire
And I thought it was my time to die
See those yellow flowers nodding like fools
I want to destroy them, they remind me of you
(REPEAT CHORUS x 2
