resistance song lyrics – jill sobule

i had this dream we were in the resistance
somewhere in france fighting traitors and fascists
you were my mistress, yes you were a woman
but i knew it was you by the shape of your mouth
you called me maurice and i had a small mustache
played clarinet in a decadent band

until we hid in the bushes
we shot from the bushes
made love in the bushes
like there was no tomorrow

but in my real life i’m a c*cktail waitress
dodging men’s hands, instead of bullets
and you’re a b*ss player in a band that got a deal
dealing with *ssholes instead of explosives
still we’re grateful to be alive
together fighting side by side

as we hide in the bushes
we shoot from the bushes
we love in the bushes
like there is no tomorrow

we’ll drink from the bushes
we’ll hide in the bushes
we’ll love in the bushes
like there is no tomorrow

we promised if one of us left or died
we’ll meet again in another life

and we’ll hide in the bushes
we’ll shoot from the bushes
make love in the bushes
like there is no tomorrow

we’ll hide in the bushes
we’ll shoot from the bushes
make love in the bushes
like there is no tomorrow
