"...we dont have to be electric eels under the covers, we don't have to be any of those things, lets just be lovers"

Astronomy will have to be revised.
"In tat or tatters you're entrancing"
"Cos I always say I love you, when I mean turn out the light"
Unfortunately I can't find the thread where they do discuss how listenable The Magnetic Fields are.
I could make a career of being blue--I could dress
in black and read Camus, smoke clove cigarettes and drink
"I would have forgotten you long ago... but you're in every song I know"
