Carlota Coralie – A Literary Affair/Gatsby Lyrics

Idealized him ’til the point the context quickly blurred
Juvenile games -come October- took a violent turn
A child is quoting Fitzgerald in a plaid little skirt
Pretends she’s lived the depth of his ripe words

You played my Gatsby ’til the second act
But when the curtains closed you sent the kid to the stacks
I never thought that life and love were fair
That’s why I inked us in this Literary Affair

Pen to paper, nightmares flourish, pain to feel alive
But we’re not poetic heroes, I’m just playing with fire
A child is quoting Fitzgerald; she hasn’t read his works
Attempting to impress a hero way beyond her years

You played my Gatsby ’til the second act
But when the curtains closed you sent the kid to the stacks
I never thought that life and love were fair
That’s why I inked us in this Literary Affair
