Lover I don't have to love

Dieses Lied von Bright Eyes hat mich sehr angesprochen. (Das Video ist eine Karaoke-Version, der Liedtext steht aber nochmals hier unten)

"In den Konzerten und auf den Alben der Bright Eyes bekommt der Zuhörer gefühlvolle und melodische, meist akustisch gespielte Nummern dargeboten. Conor Oberst zelebriert dabei einen zutiefst melancholischen Stil und singt mit zittriger Stimme von Herzschmerz, Unglück und Selbsthass. Dass er auch anders kann, zeigt er in seinem deutlich rockigeren Projekt Desaparecidos."

I picked you out of a crowd and talked to you
I said I liked your shoes
You said, "Thanks, can I follow you?"
So it's up the stairs and out of view
No prying eyes
I poured some wine
I asked your name, you asked the time

Now it's two o'clock
The club is closed
We're up the block
Your hands on me; Pressing hard against your jeans
Your tongue in my mouth, trying to keep the words from coming out
You didn't care to know who else may have been you before

I want a lover I don't have to love
I want a girl who's too sad to give a fuck
Where's the kid with the chemicals?
I thought he said to meet him here but I'm not sure
I've got the money if you've got the time
You said it feels good
I said, "I'll give it a try."

Then my mind went dark
We both forgot where your car was parked
Let's just take the train
I'll meet up with the band in the morning

Bad actors with bad habits
Some sad singers they just play tragic
And the phone's ringing and the van's leaving
Let's just keep touching; let's just keep... keep singing...

I want a lover I don't have to love
I want a boy who's so drunk he doesn't talk
Where's the kid with the chemicals?
I've got a hunger and I can't seem to get full
I need some meaning I can memorize
The kind I have always seems to slip my mind

But you, but you...

You write such pretty words
But life's no storybook
Love's an excuse to get hurt
And to hurt.
Do you like to hurt?
I do, I do

Then hurt me... [x10]
