Every kind of love
Or at least my kind of love
Must be an imaginary love to start with
Guess that can explain the rain,
Waiting walking game
Schubert busts my brain to start with

Hoped to look at you in a cab
Back of your head across my lap
Oh what grace
Green back seat against the
Red of your face
Hoped to look at you in any old grand hotel
Drunken demands gave way to reservations
Oh, what a room
Champagne brings such happy faces, happy faces


Cause every kind of love
Or at least my kind of love
Must be an imaginary love to start with
Guess that can explain the rain
Waiting walking game
Schubert broke my brain to start with

    General CommentThis song is about how you sit and think about how you imagine love will be. The little details you think about, how the situation will be. Then it doesn't ever happen exactly as its planned. Love starts as as a fantasy and ends in a reality.

    General CommentWhen it comes to love/relationship issues, Rufus is a master. He sings of love as it really is and not tries to make love seem perfect because it never will be but we just have to keep on trying and continue loving...

    General CommentI think it's "Schubert busts my brain to start with," not "broke." I don't know for sure, but it sure sounds like it. Anyway, I think it's beautiful.

    General CommentThis is one of my top 4 favorite Rufus songs! The lyrics seem to change in tone and just...in words of Lennon...imagine.

    General CommentI like the way the song starts quiet but builds up. Rufus is a very talented singer/songwriter.

    General Commentthis is my theme song. my introverted shyness transforms me into this master idealistic ... daydreamer.
