    "Broken Bicycles/junk" Lyrics

    Anne Sofie Von Otter feat. Elvis Costello

    Broken Bicycles

    Broken bicycles, old busted chains

    Rusted handlebars, out in the rain

    Somebody must have an orphanage for

    All these things that nobody wants anymore

    September's reminding July

    It's time to be saying goodbye

    Summer is gone, our love will remain

    Like old broken bicycles out in the rain


    Motorcars, handlebars

    Bicycles for two

    Broken-hearted jubilee

    Parachutes, army boots

    Sleeping bags for two

    Sentimental jamboree

    "Buy! Buy!" says the sign in the shop window

    "Why? Why?" says the junk in the yard

    Broken Bicycles

    Broken bicycles, don't tell my folks

    'Cos all those playing cards pinned to the spokes

    Laid out like skeletons out on the lawn

    The wheels won't turn when the other half's gone

    Seasons can turn on a dime

    Somehow I forget every time

    For the things that you've given me

    Will always stay

    They're broken

    But I'll never throw them away
