just another day

today is february 15th. today is not valentine's day either. but this is still one of the most romantic sentiments i've ever read. you should listen to it. and share it. just because.

r.e.m. : "be mine" mp3
from the lp new adventures in hi-fi (warner bros, 1996)
i never thought of this as funny
it speaks another world to me
i want to be your easter bunny
i want to be your christmas tree
i'll strip the world that you must live in
of all its godforsaken greed
i'll ply the tar out of your feathers
i'll pluck the thorns out of your feet

you and me
you and me
you and me

and if i choose your sanctuary
i'll want to wash you with my hair
i want to drink of sacred fountains
and find the riches hidden there
i'll eat the lotus and peyote
i want to hear the caged bird sing
i want the secrets of the temple
i want the finger with the ring

you and me
you and me
you and me

and if you make me your religion
i'll give you all the room you need
i'll be the drawing of your breath
i'll be the cup if you should bleed
i'll be the sky above the ganges
i'll be the vast and stormy sea
i'll be the lights that guide you inland
i'll be the visions you will see
the visions you will see
you will see
you will see

you and me

I absolutely adore this song. Be Mine and Electrolite pretty much defined a big chunk of my life back in 96.
