Handsome is...

A Beautiful Thing

Don't you remember that snowy December when we went to see "Singing in the Rain"? I shouldn't have smuggled in that bottle of gin because after the film, I could barely walk. But, darling don't you know it's only human to want to kill a beautiful thing. When I was seven summer lasted forever. I used to chase fire flies through the woods. Tiny green lights circling warm August nights. I'd catch them inside a washed-out old jar. I dreamed of the stars with the jar by my bed, but each morning my pretty bugs were dead. We should have been dancing like lovers in a movie, but I fell and cut my head in the snow. I wanted to tell you all the ways that I loved you but, instead I got sick on the train ~

Ah, Joe, of course, The Handsomes are probably your next door neighbours! I went to New Mexico once. I liked it. Especially the big thunderstorms and the blue tortilla chips.

Well, thunderstorms are just about all we've got going on here right now. Of course, the blue tortilla chips are always a favorite.

And you're right. Albuquerque (where the band lists their mailing address) is only about three and a half miles away...
