Love is... (Pt 2)

Today I have decided to be lazy and post the lyrics of one of the lesser known Great Poets of our time. Mr. Weezer.
This is from the album Pinkerton (the brown one) which is also a book by Stephen Kellogg about a large great dane!
I would never classify Weezer as "romantic" music... but here it is anyway!

Falling for You

Holy cow! I think I've got one here
Now just what am I s'posed to do?
I've got a number of irrational fears
That I'd like to share with you
First, there's rules about old goats like me
Hangin' 'round with chicks like you -but I do like you-
And another one: you say "like" too much

But I'm shakin' at your touch
I like you way too much
My baby, I'm afraid I'm falling for you
'n I'd do 'bout anything to get the hell out alive
Or maybe I would rather settle down with you

Holy moly, baby, wouldn't you know it?
Just as I was bustin' loose
I gotta go turn in my rock star card and get fat and old with you
'cuz I'm a burning candle you're a gentle moth
teaching me to lick a little bit kinder
And I do like you - you're the lucky one
No! I'm the lucky one

Holy Sweet goddamn! You left your cello in the basement
I admired the glowing the stars and tried to play a tune'
I can't believe how bad I suck, it's true
What could you possibly see in little ol' 3-chord me?
But it's true - you like me, I like you too
I'm ready, let's do it baby

"Holy Sweet Goddamn!" I love that song. Well, I love all Weezer, I mean how can you not love a song that starts "What's with these homies dissin' my girl, Why do they gotta front!" (Buddy Holly, Blue) Pure lyrical genius!
Too often I use music as background, and forget to listen to the words. I challenge you all, this week, find you favorite non-love, love song out there. (that means no Bryan Adams!)
