"Marry Me" as written by and Brandon Reilly....
I felt a love of such deafening weight
Dangling from a balustrade of shilly-shally
Overlooking infinity and this ecstasy
Of you lying next to me
And in a peculiar way you clutched me
By the shoulder, said "Boy I barely know you
But would you marry me?"

We were floating about with our heads in the clouds
And stealing those words from my mouth
You whispered in my ear
Exactly what I wanted to hear

I composed a note of such jubilant things
And placed it between bed and spring
Of a hostile hostel overrun with
Shedding towelettes and Mexican maids
And with indefinite fate I clutched you by the shoulder
And said "Girl, I barely know you
But will you marry me?"

    General CommentI think it sounds more like a Decemberists' song rather than Bright eyes.

    General CommentI think that this song is about, quite obviously, love at first sight. (I personally don't believe in love at first sight, rather, lust at first sight seems more proper. There are so many things that play in to being "in love", rather than just the first time you see them.) Anyways, this song is a good one, I dedicated it to my boyfriend, because I am spaztastically in love with him. Either way, the song seems to belong in Spongebob Squarepants, rather than an emo/alternative album.
