      About "Boomerang"

      Lyrics for T Bone Burnett - "Boomerang"

      Up in New York City, 'neath the bamboo trees
      She was eating sushi, he was on his knees
      He tried to say he loved her but he could not win
      She just fixed her lipstick and kept ignoring him

      She was headed for a crash and it even hurt to laugh
      'Cause it ended with a bang
      When it all came back like a boomerang
      When it all came back like a boomerang

      She went to a party, where thieves and debutants
      All talked in italics with so much nonchalance
      He was on the outside, standing in the rain
      He saw her through the window, he could not stand the pain

      She was headed for a crash and it even hurt to laugh
      'Cause it ended with a bang
      When it all came back like a boomerang
      When it all came back like a boomerang

      She went up the staircase with a sleazy Mideast guest
      Who could not help staring through her flimsy cocktail dress
      He broke into the bedroom, they put him on the spot
      He pulled off his pistol, they never heard the shots

      They were headed for a crash and it even hurt to laugh
      'Cause it ended with a bang
      When it all came back like a boomerang
      When it all came back like a boomerang
      When it all came back like a boomerang
