​A Distant Summer

This song is by The Legendary Pink Dots and appears on the album The Whispering Wall (2004).

A discontented winter
An unprecedented fall
Broken spring
She pawned her ring
One steamy summer night in '64
See he left without a warning
He did not leave a note
We trolled the river
Drained the moat
Could not find him
And the neighbor screamed blue murder
Which was such a bitter pill
Still she swallowed it with dignity
And handed us the key
To her domain
Such a shame about the garden
And the posse in the hall
We drank her coffee
Knocked down walls
Finding nothing
And they sat around her table
Calling voices from beyond
Spectors moaned
A dancing bone murmumed
