I am a day late but remember when Mark Linkous killed himself four years ago? That sucked. He didn’t make a song I didn’t like, but this is a favorite.
There will come a time gigantic
Waves will crush the junk that I have saved
When the moon explodes or floats away
I’ll lose the souvenirs I made
La la la
They say “Now don’t be a stranger.”,
It really don’t matter to me,
I’d be willing to wager,
That it don’t matter much if we keep in touch.
Oh, meet me anyplace or anywhere or anytime,
Now I don’t care, meet me tonight,
If you will dare, I might dare.
I turn my phone off
I sold my laptop
And then I took right off
To the West
I’m humming like washing machines through the window,
And feeling glad that I saw you in your favorite jeans.
I want a house,
Built of old wood,
You can paint it any color you like,
Just so long as I can live with you.
