unclean, a libertine

The World According to Ivana Stab

Not for all my little words

A girl called Lauren sent me a wonderful mix as a trade for my zine and on it was a song by The Magnetic Fields called All My Little Words which I have completely fallen in love with.

 

 

“You are a splendid butterfly
It is your wings that make you beautiful
And I could make you fly away
But I could never make you stay
You said you were in love with me
Both of us know that that’s impossible
And I could make you rue the day
But I could never make you stay

 

Not for all the tea in China
Not if I could sing like a bird
Not for all North Carolina
Not for all my little words
Not if I could write for you
The sweetest song you ever heard
It doesn’t matter what I’ll do
Not for all my little words

 

Now that you’ve made me want to die
You tell me that you’re unboyfriendable
And I could make you pay in pain
But I could never make you stay”
