"...the heart was rejected by the host."
Sorry to spoil the ending.
Another earworm for good measure. Yesterday, as Foo and I sat on the front stoop eagerly awaiting gg's arrival, iPod shuffle reminded me of both this song and the Pete Yorn one down yonder. Like the purdy harmonizing on that one. And though I prefer Charlotte Gainsbourg as an actress (see "Prete Moi Ta Main," "My Wife is an Actress," and "Lemming" if you haven't already), I do fancy what Jarvis Cocker did with some of her songs on 5:55, this one being one of 'em.
