The Familiar Girl


The Familiar Girl Lyrics

Diego Moriarty crossed the eucalyptus lawn
& he walked into the party of some Duke he'd met that
Over breakfast in a self-serve where he'd spend the
usual day
Making power laws out of bell curves in the usual way
The air was thick w/ laughter just one long vermillion
& he found himself gazing at the familiar girl

She said "We know each other don't we?", he said "I was
thinking that"
& they started seeking links just like the market seeks
the crash
"So do you know the Duke?" - "What Duke?" - "Me
neither. Where you from?"
Somewhere unpronounceable where Diego's never gone
They compared lives & pasts & lovers, but they'd never
known each other
The conversation faded & they parted garbed in
Diego left the party feeling empty sad & nauseous

He never even asked her her name
Diego never asked her her name

2 years pass, Shibuya: "Oh hi, where do I know you
Wait, you're the guy I don't know", all enthusiasm gone
He said "It's kind of like a thriller that you saw &
then forgot
Where you can't say who's the killer but you still know
half the plot"
"No it's more like a car crash, broken glass but no
harm done
The policeman waves you past, 'Nothing to see here,
move along'"

The next time's new year's eve, '99 - milliminal
The airport in Sofia, by the luggage carousel
Blindsighted by fluorescent light they reach for the
same case
W/ air-conditioned eyes he meets the strange familiar
Can't find a word to say so they just go their separate
Diego spends the night in crowded streets scanning
As the sky explodes w/ star flowers & the screams of
desperate preachers
& he doesn't even know why he's so desperate to meet

But he never even asked her her name
He never even found out her name

7 years of loneliness then 7 years of luck
Diego's getting by, but the familiar face has stuck
He's had his share of loves, thought he was happy once
or twice
But it's her face that he sees on walls of cheap hotels
at night

One day he sees the Duke, & he can't believe his eyes
Duke says "Seems like a lifetime" & "Have you met my
She says "We once met at a party, but we didn't get
He says "Then Tokyo, then Sofia", but she just shakes
her head & yawns
"No you must be mistaken, I don't remember that"
Diego smiles in desperation, says goodbye & walks away
too fast
His centre has been taken, his past collapsed, his
future's too vast

Diego never asked her her name
He's never gonna find out her name
He never even asked her her name
He's never gonna find out her name
