The Magnetic Fields - Love is Lighter than Air


In the matter of minutes I'm off to NY for a family reunion.... so no blurb for this entry. Besides, the Magnetic Fields need no introduction.


The Magnetic Fields - Love is Lighter than Air

"Summer, summer, summer
Slowly turned into fall
Me and my baby doll
Never went to the beach
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere
Was a place we could run
On the sand with the sun
Always just out of reach
Somewhere sunny summer's
Marching to a different drummer, singing
"Summer, summer summer's
Gonna turn into fall
You and your baby doll
Better go to the beach cause

Love is lighter than air
It floats away if you let go
Love is lighter than air
It rises through the falling snow."

A crime, crime, crime
Sin and illness is time
Neither reason nor rhyme
Can obstruct his bad dance
The nasty little swine
Slipped us mickeys in wine
Wove his hair into twine
And then tied our hands
We're forced to watch him wriggle
And endure his folsome giggle and his
Mime, mime, mime
Unforgivable mime
Our one chance is to climb
Into blimps of romance cause

Love is lighter than air
It floats away if you let go
Love is lighter than air
It rises through the falling snow"
