Shiksa

Postby crbrazil » Thu Oct 14, 2010 12:54 am

Girlfriend now
I have a girlfriend now
No way, no how
How'd I get a girlfriend, now?
I remember it vividly, love. I've been walking erect since the moment we met
And I caught your eyes to my surprise (your white thighs)
Hebraic neuroses ceased to be. An angel's conversing with me
The new attractive to me is divine
And even if your friends don't understand
No matter what, I'll always be your man
And even if you go, you know you’ll leave me feeling grand
I'll need new contraceptives, green eyes
I found god when you left him, green eyes
Let's spend the night entwined out on the boardwalk in sickly summertime
Like the yin and the yang of the afikomen
You're the omen that all has changed that was deranged
and even if you suck* me 'til I'm sore
no matter what I'd bleed to be your whore
and even if the cancer grows until we explode, I'm yours
Girlfriend now
I have a girlfriend now
no way, no how
how'd i get a girlfriend, now?
Well from here on forth, I'm yours
And even if your whisper eats my ear
Your voice shall be the only song I long to hear
And even if you fear the end, our sacrament of salmon and Irish beer
Will still be here
“Boy, I need your love, so give it to me
boy, I need your touch, so lay it on me
boy, I need your love, I need your touch, I'm yours”

*probably the most argued about line of all time. supposedly someone asked him after a show and he said it was suck. i'm just a messenger
was i born to sink into this couch

this song is the energetic too-awesome-to-describe feeling you get right after deciding to date that special someone i think. despite how odd the reasons may be for become attracted to this new lover, it's an outstanding happiness that will last, and that no one else can understand. it reminds me of my most recent relationship anyways, all too well. that's what i pull out of it.

Such a Jewish song, what with the title and "afikoman."
shiksa = a non-Jewish girl
afikoman = the last piece of matzah bread at a Passover seder dinner
Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you.
It will set you free. Be more like the man you were made to be.
There is a design, an alignment, a cry of my heart to see
the beauty of love as it was meant to be.
Mumford & Sons
