open the desktop behind me
sending crayon valentines
i reply
will you marry me, loligirl?
my second grade heart
looks more like a broken you
and me,
19
and crying for eulalia...

i'm still young

i will be waiting for you loligirl
the little girl that i knew loligirl
and if you're waiting for me loligirl
and if you see me loligirl

bring back the boy i used to be

    General Comment"Between the innocence of babyhood and the dignity of manhood, we find a delightful creature called a Boy. Boys comes in assorted sizes, weights and colors, but all boys have the same creed: to enjoy every minute of every second of every day, and to protest with noise (their only weapon) when their last minute is finished and the adult males pack them off to bed at night.
    Boys are found everywhere-- on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around, or jumping to. Mothers love them. Little girls hate them. Older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them, and Heaven protects them.
    A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."
    When you are busy, a boy is an inconsiderate, bothersome, intruding jangle of noise. When you want him to make a good impression, his brain turns to jelly, or else he becomes a savage sadistic jungle creature bent on destroying the world, and himself with it..."


    I just googled it. It's from a much longer speech by the Rev. Guido F. Verbeck III at stpaulsepis.org/…

    General CommentOkay, this song is an awesome song.

    To me, it's about young love, and then later on being lonely and longing to be back in that young love because it was so happy and everything was so bright.

    If I had the choice I'd go back to third grade and be innocently in love again, as things just aren't working in the here and now.

    General CommentBob said the song was pretty much about being so enamored that you feel like a little kid again. The name supposedly came from someone he knew with the name Eulalia, which is just a great name. Good song.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Braid songs if not the number one favorite song. I can't believe you didn't add the dialog at the begining of the song. I love that part. Anyways I think the song is about how he wants to re-live his first real love, to re-live the feeling of a heart never broken that is in love for the first time.

    General Commentdoes this have anything to do with redwall? in the books "eulalia" was a battle cry...
    i dont think he misses a specific person so much as his childhood in general.

    General Comment...in the presents of an eight year old
    model planes and model everything
    in the presence of an eighteen year old
    in a sense innocence makes you tense
    in the presense of an eight year old
    writing cursive on loose leaf paper
    in the presence of an eighteen year old


    i will be waiting for you loligirl
    the little girl that i knew loligirl
    and if you're waiting for me loligirl
    yeah and if you see me loligirl


    bring back the boy i used to be

    General CommentI know Braid cut a bit of it out, like "Beauty with a cut on its finger" and the end of the excerpt I added. Weird.

    It's also supposed to say "to enjoy every second of every minute of every hour of every day."
    Don't know what I was thinking.

    General CommentI went bowling a couple weeks ago, and my bowling name was Eulalia.
    It gave us a good chuckle
