about

4/17/14, The Skylark - Seattle, WA

One time down in Portland at a show this fan told us that he first had sex with his wife while listening to this tune.
While I am sure it was meant as a compliment I could not help thinking that if I was on a date that was going so well that sex was on the menu I would never think "You know what this scene needs baby? This scene needs that one Purrs tune where the guy tells you all the things he won't do, followed by all the things you shouldn't do, followed by all the things he wants."

lyrics

I wouldn’t tell you my name, I wouldn’t tell you a lie
I wouldn’t shut my mouth, I wouldn’t kiss you goodbye
I wouldn’t howl at the moon, I wouldn’t hold your hand
I’ll tell you so many thing you just can’t understand
A taste of monday

Don’t wait for better days, don’t wake up on the floor
Don’t hang around waiting for some knock on your door
I have a message for you from the underground
You better make a move, you better make a sound
A sound…

I never wanted to sing, I never wanted to reach out
You know it's constantly bringing me down
You say it’s all very simple as you’re placing your bets
Collapsing like a drunken marionette
I wanna know where you’ve been
I want to know what you saw
I want flickering walls, I want to start a war
I want to talk all day and talk all night
I want to talk all day until the temperatures rise
I want to talk all day and talk all night
I want to talk all day until the temperatures rise
A taste of Monday...
