Kiwi Jr. – The Sound of Music Lyrics

The Sound of Music Lyrics By Kiwi Jr.

You took one too many Ativan and raced out into the street
Danced in line with the EMTs who stared at your bare feet
I’ll never recover from the shape of your little fist
Swinging at the coat check singing ‘I Have Confidence’ in the rain

I was on your last paragraph when they asked, “Guess who’s been killed?”
Then I heard those European police sirens from all those action films
I’ll never recover from doing what was right
You said, “If you die in your sleep, you’re all alone in the middle of the night”

So long, farewell, Julie Andrews
We lose quarters in candy machines

When they pulled you out of the harbour you were holding onto a book
Then you shoved your screenplay into my chest and said, “Won’t you at least take a look?”
I’ll never recover from the colour of your tears
When you came home from spring break after thirteen years

So long, farewell, Tony Walton
We lose fingers in pairing machines
Ah, so long, farewell, Julie Andrews
We lose lines in deleted scenes
