A Perfect Day Elise

Album: Is This Desire? (1998)
Charted: 25
  • He got lucky one time
    Hitting with the girl in room 509
    She turned her back on him facing the frame
    Said, "Listen Joe, don't you come here again"

    White sun scattered all over the sea
    He could think of nothing but her name "Elise"
    God is the sweat running down his back
    The water soaked her blonde hair black

    Its a perfect day Elise

    He got burned by the sun
    His face so pale and his hands so worn
    Let himself in room 509
    Said a prayer, and cried

    It's a perfect day, Elise Writer/s: POLLY JEAN HARVEY
