"Pietro Crespi" as written by and Michael Kinsella....
Could you love someone enough
After all you've had and you've lost?
It's a simple question
I'm only asking 'cause I don't want to die alone

could you love someone completely?
And yes, by "someone" I mean me
Spoiled sick like milk you let sit too long
It's a simple question
As I lie awake waiting for you to lay beside me
I can almost hear the sad waltzes of Pietro Crespi

could you love someone who does whatever he wants to do
Whenever I want to?
It's a simple question
I'm only asking 'cause I don't want to die alone

    General CommentPietro Crespi is a character in One Hundred Years Of Lonliness (also translated as One Hundred Years Of Solitude), a novel by Gabriel García Marquez. If you haven't read the deamn book, do it. Now.
    One of the greatest novels ever written.

    General CommentNot quite, this was the version that he sung live before the song had a name. The lyrics are very slighlty different from the version that's going to come out in november.

    General Commentwell then they should have put live on the title, because the real one he released on his myspace with the same name has different lyrics

    General CommentI love that book, though it is pretty long. Before I heard it, I thought "Bags of Bones" was another allusion to the book. The song "Remedios the Beautiful" by Appleseed Cast is also an allusion to One Hundred Years of Solitude, and I find it interesting that it's inspired that much.
