about

12/06/05, The Crocodile - Seattle, WA

Sitting in bars getting into odd conversations with people in the middle of a week day is one of my favorite things to do. This activity shows up in quite a few Purrs tunes. One would think that after 20 years of being in this band that particular activity would get old but it hasn't for me.
This early track starts a grand tradition of mining lyrics for album titles. We've done that on every album except a self titled one and the live album.

lyrics

No particular bar, no particular town
Covers me in the feeling that I’ll never get behind these cold eyes
I feel my temperature rise
Somebodys taking a breath, somebodys taking a drink
I want a place at the bar to sit
Because everything is coming out wrong, I guess it's just the same old song

Don’t talk about tomorrow because it's nearly here right now
And if you take it away it's doubtful I will be here when you get it back
Don’t talk about tomorrow because it's something that needs to stay
In a place that keeps me hopeful for a brighter day

There's nothing special about it, nothing you need to know
There's nothing in particular I can shape into some kind of fate
And feel like i’m not just a fake
Could this be my chance? I just can’t decide
There’s a noose hanging round my neck and now all my money is gone
Because I spent it all getting high

Don’t talk about tomorrow because it's nearly here right now
And if you take it away it's doubtful I will be here when you get it back
Don’t talk about tomorrow because it's something that needs to stay
In a place that keeps me hopeful for a brighter day
No particular bar, no particular town
No particular bar, no particular town
