About Fingers & Thumbs (Cold Summer's Day)

"Fingers & Thumbs (Cold Summer's Day)" is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure. The track originally appeared on the soundtrack to the documentary film Wigstock: the Movie as the track titled "Cold Summer's Day." Erasure re-recorded the track for their album Erasure with new lyrics. It was released as the second single from the album by Mute Records in the UK and Elektra Records in the United States. The album version is over six minutes long; the single edit removes an extended instrumental section between the second and third choruses. The song was composed by Vince Clarke and Andy Bell and is an uptempo dance music track. The music video features Bell singing the song as he walks through an amusement park (the actual filming was done in the London Docklands[1]). Upon its release, the song became Erasure's twenty-second consecutive Top 20 hit in the UK singles chart. In Germany the song stopped at number sixty-nine. It was a hit on the U. S. dance charts, peaking at number ten on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in Billboard magazine.

You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
A hint of the scent then it's gone
Look at the state of you
You're all fingers and thumbs

So who's your latest flame
Driving 'em wild in the fast lane
I won't say I told you so
But the boy has no shame (no shame)

Once when my hands were full
We were double or quits then some
Nothing at all to show for a love so precious

Gone and blown it all
How can you say
"It doesn't matter much to me"
A dumb mistake 
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blown it all
And then you say
"This can't be happening to me"
A dumb mistake 
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Don't know what you've got 'til it's gone
The thrill of the chase then it's gone
Only the hurt to prove that it ever went on

And life is a wonderful thing
When you're humming the words to a love song
Do what you want to do
Be who you want to be

When I'm in your arms I'm strong
There's nowhere I'd rather be
We shine for liberty, life and the pursuit of pleasure

Gone and blown it all
How can you say
"It doesn't matter much to me"
A dumb mistake 
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blown it all
And then you say
"This isn't be happening to me"
A dumb mistake 
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

Here I do walk
Frost amongst the flowers
On a cold summer's day
On a cold summer's day
Frost amongst the flowers
On a cold summer's day
And then I said this
And then I said this
The winter it broke away

Gone and blown it all
How can you say
"It doesn't matter much to me"
A dumb mistake 
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

How the days have flown
Too few and fast
They said it wasn't meant to last
A dumb mistake 
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris

How the days have flown
They said it wouldn't last
Much too much to ask
Your heart is made of glass
Love will save the day
See you go away
Like a shattered heart

A shattered heart in love's debris

Gone and blown it all
How can you say
"It doesn't matter much to me"
A dumb mistake 
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love's debris
