You held me upside-down
Till I couldn't breathe anymore
Then you held me like a baby

Television, like wine
And cigarettes, like grains of sand
And raspberry Schnapps, like a thousand sunsets

The boys talk like they own the world
The women keep their stupid diaries
But suddenly there's a tidal wave
And everything is sucked out to sea

There were probably birds outside our little room
I don't remember anything but you

We must have been the butt
Of all the jokes in the world
For trying to live like Pippi Longstocking

    General CommentThis is it.
    This is THE BEST early, pre-Merrit vocalist Magnetic Fields song along with 10,000 Fireflies and probably one of the best Magnetic Fields songs PERIOD.

    Merrit creates almost a perfect wall of sound, that im sure only the original Spector could ever create. This song just fills you with sound.
