The first time that I met her I was throwing up in the ladies room stall. She asked me if I needed anything; I said, "I think I spilled my drink". And that's how it started (or so I'd like to believe)...
She took me to her mother's house outside of town where the stars hang down. She said she'd never seen someone so lost, I said I'd never felt so found - and then I kissed her on the cheek... and so she kissed me on the mouth.
Spring was poppin' daises up 'round rusted trucks and busted lawn chairs. We moved into a studio in Council Bluffs to save a couple bucks. Where the mice came out at night, neighbors were screaming all the time. We'd make love in the afternoons to Chelsea Girls and Bachelor No. 2, I'd play for her some songs I wrote, she'd joke and say I'm shooting through the roof, I'd say, "They're all for you, dear, I'll write the album of the year."
And I know she loved me then, I swear to God she did. It's way she'd bite my lower lip and push her hips against my hips and dig her nails so deep into my skin.

    Incidentally, it's so cruel the way this made me wary and afraid of the gut-wrenching scenario of 'picking through which records were hers' (or in this case his) years before it actually happened. Insert High Fidelity quotation.

    Just checking. Yep, still makes me cry even though a million years has passed.

    One of the best songs ever written, without question. Also one of the most important in my life. Forever associated with true love, and eventually true despair.

    i've been listening to the good life since i was 13 and it made me more aware and less, i don't know how to put it, i guess naive when it came to love and relationships, because hearing the stories and more sad of songs made me think so hard, but yeah best line, we started laughing till it didn't hurt
