dream mirror

I had this wonderful dream the other night about a group of about 200 men in black who suddenly flew above the rooftops like a large flock of birds going this way and that…a song was playing in the background – the whole village was singing the “book of love” from the Magnetic Fields in 4 part harmony…

The book of love is long and boring

No one can lift the damn thing

It’s full of charts and facts and figures,

and instructions for dancing

But I

I love it when you read to me

And you

You can read me anything

The book of love has music in it

In fact that’s where music comes from

Some of it’s just transcendental

Some of it’s just really dumb

But I

I love it when you sing to me

And you

You can sing me anything

The book of love is long and boring

And written very long ago

It’s full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes

And things we’re all too young to know

But I

I love it when you give me things

And you

You ought to give me wedding rings

And I

I love it when you give me things

And you

You ought to give me wedding rings

You ought to give me wedding rings
