Lyrics of the Afternoon

Well, go ahead and call the cops,
You don’t meet nice girls in coffee shops.

-from “Hold On” written by Tom Waits, but I’m listening to the Redbird (Peter Mulvey) cover…

Lyrics of the Afternoon

Not only does it have an awesome beeboppy ’60s feelin’ to it, but also there are a LOT of good lines in The Magnetic Fields “Too Drunk to Dream” (from Distortion, a pretty kickin’ album that sonically certainly lives up to its name) but here are three of my faves:
I’ve got to get too drunk to dream because I only dream of you.
I’ve got to get too pissed to miss you or I’ll never get to sleep.
I’ve got to get too fried to cry or I’ll be crying all night long.

Mmmm, making me thirsty.
