Tom Verlaine – Shimmer lyrics

(Verlaine)
You have always been so kind to me,
Mere gratitude is not enough.
But if there's anything that I can do or say,
To take that pressure off,
You know I'll do it,
Or at least I'll try,
I'm used to living off-the-cuff.
Shimmer!,
It's a way of life,
When no other life is true.
Shimmer!,
That's the only word,
When no other word will do.
Shimmer!
Nice new features on your automobile,
Maybe I could get a lift uptown?
That's some crazy hat that you've got on today,
You really put my feet back on the ground.
You know talking ain't my speciality,
Forgive me if I'm just going round.
Shimmer!,
It's a way of life,
When no other life is true.
Shimmer!,
That's the only word,
When no other word will do.
Shimmer!,
It's a way of life,
When no other life is true.
Shimmer!,
That's the only word,
When no other word will do.
You know you have my affections,
And my deepest respect,
I'm sorry honey if sometimes I just show
Too much neglect
Shimmer!
Shimmer!,
It's a way of life,
When no other life is true.
Shimmer!,
That's the only word,
When no other word will do.
