all she said
will my bride sleep tonight
softly
believe the words
as always lying
and she sleeps and dreams
lord knows what
but it's not for me to be there
and she knows she isn't there for me
it's just a way of protecting
and will my bride believe the lie
says it's all right; still together 'til we die
but she knows that words aren't always
always what we mean to say
but still she says she loves me anyway
that's all she said
one more word she speaks and says good night
she would believe enchanted lies
I wait for her but still inside
she's dreaming of Valentino's eyes
far away in someone else's night
it isn't wrong but still it isn't right
that's all she said


i don't know why, but i've always had a spot for this song. it's rather sad and depressing, yes, but still, i've spent many a night over the last 4 or 5 years listening to this and a couple other tracks from the In Light Syrup album over and over again. it makes me think of an old married couple that has been together for 50 years, only because they've never known anything different. they dream of having been or being elsewhere with other people, lost chances at love, but they are so devoted that they don't mind the loss. kind of sweet in a demented/depressive way.

the reason i bring it up is it's played about 6 or 8 times on PA radio since i started listening to it a few days ago, which is strange because i don't recall it ever being a single and most stations (internet and otherwise) won't play tracks that didn't come out on single. *shrugs* c'est la vie...just makes me want to hunt for that disc...

there is some guy up here with my name who needs to go to the student accounts office. i'd say "oh crap, why do I need to go to the student accounts office, but i've already been in there. they don't want me. they want a different me. there is another me here. and they are annoying the crap out of me since they aren't bothering to get my name off of the student accounts call list. should i run into me, i think i shall proceed to verbally abuse myself for having caused me so much annoyance. stupid bastard, making me fret because my name is on a paper attached to walls throughout the building....i will hunt me down and smack me upside the back of my head...
