in an old silverline
i was yours, you were mine
i was hoarse, you were mean
we designed drum machines

but every day in every way
im falling out of love with you
every kiss means less and less
im falling out of love with you
every hour kills a flower
im falling out of love with you
you just bore me more and more
im falling out of love with you

they made sounds much like drums
i was young you were dumb
now youre older and im wiser
we design synthesizers

but every day in every way
im falling out of love with you
every kiss means less and less
im falling out of love with you
every hour kills a flower
im falling out of love with you
you just bore me more and more
im falling out of love with you

    General CommentI know this song from The Adventures of Pete & Pete, and I think it's one of the most beautiful sounding songs I've ever heard. The meaning is pretty obvious, it's about falling out of love with someone. But to me this song just reminds me of my childhood because of Pete & Pete.

    General CommentThis song has been covered by Tullycraft and Basil the Mouse. I rather like Tullycraft's version. Great song. Stephin Merritt is indeed a genius. I just saw the Magnetic Fields live last week.

    General CommentThis song really is beautiful, just like all of Merritts stuff.
    "but every day in every way
    im falling out of love with you
    every kiss means less and less
    im falling out of love with you
    every hour kills a flower
    im falling out of love with you
    you just bore me more and more
    im falling out of love with you"

    It is my goal to fall more out of love with someone this year. I've got the bore part. It's a real inspiration.
