Trash

Album: Coming Up (1996)
Charted: 3
  • Oh maybe, maybe it's the clothes we wear
    The tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair
    Maybe it's our kookiness
    Or maybe, maybe it's our nowhere towns
    Our nothing places and our cellophane sounds
    Maybe it's our looseness

    But we're trash, you and me
    We're the litter on the breeze
    We're the lovers on the streets
    Just trash, me and you
    It's in everything we do
    It's in everything we do

    Oh maybe, maybe it's the things we say
    The words we've heard and the music we play
    Maybe it's our cheapness
    Or maybe, maybe it's the times we've had
    The lazy days and the crazes and the fads
    Maybe it's our sweetness

    But we're trash, you and me
    We're the litter on the breeze
    We're the lovers on the streets
    Just trash, me and you
    It's in everything we do
    It's in everything we do

    We're trash, you and me
    We're the lovers on the streets
    We're the litter on the breeze
    Just trash, me and you
    It's in everything we do
    It's in everything we do

    Oh, you and me, yeah
    You and me
    (We're the litter on the breeze)

    Oh, you and me, yeah
    You and me
