​Don't Turn Your Back On Love

This song is by Ezra Furman & The Harpoons and appears on the album Mysterious Power (2011).

Black hole hips she looks like some sort of insect buzzing across the floor toward me
I can't think. she's looking at me
With those green eyes, shining on me like floodlights way in the back of New York city
She said she'd take me down to Kokomo
We went to Kokomo, Indiana
Where she told me her real name was Diana, at the gas station.

Something about her reminds me of the united states
Sprawling across the west and all the glory
And imagination
Highway 25 divides the great plains from the rocky mountains
And Colorado springs, coal-mining town
Some lady wrote America the beautiful,
Sitting on top of pike's peak up there
Looking way, way down. way, way down

And I don't know how it happened but here we are on the dance floor together,
After all these years and I know her real name now
I know who wrote America the beautiful
And I hear a voice singing in my ear saying

Don't turn your back on love
No, don't turn your back on love,
You idiot
You fool
Don't you do it

And I mean I want to go over your house whenever you want me to come over to your house.
But that's no reason
To turn your back on love
Heartbreak is my roommate now
We live together, and we share the rent
We have long conversations before we go to sleep in bed at night
Ooh, long conversations
And I can't lie, I'm on the street inside the street in New York City,
Or in Boston, or Chicago. whatever city I happen to be in at the time.
I'm on the same street.
Mhm
And heartbreak is my roommate

Yes it's hard, of course it's hard.
It's supposed to be hard. but I can still hear her voice it's calling,
It's calling, calling, but it's whispering,
Whispering in my ear saying

Don't turn your back on love
No, don't turn your back on love,
My love. what am I supposed to do? say no?

Something about her reminds me of the united states
Sprawling across the west in all the glory.
And imagination
She spans the seas and the deserts and the forests and the mountains,
She brings it all back together in one big lovely package
Oh, baby, oh never turn my back on love
Not while you're around to whisper in my ear
After all these years, Diana
Is that what is was?

Don't forget me
No, don't forget me.
I can't forget you
How could I ever forget you?
Oh, don't forget me.
Don't turn your back on love
I won't turn my back on love.
Can't forget you
How could I forget you?
