I've always loved your love
In and out Up and down
If your love is a ship
I pull your anchor and I christen it

I'm in love with love
(I'm in love)
And it broke me in two
(in two)
I'm in love with love
Look out baby, It's gonna break you too

I'd pull your ship across the ocean wide
Hold my breath
And dive dive dive
If they held me at the bottom
Then asked me why
I'd open my mouth and I'd tell em why 'cause

I'm in love with love
(I'm in love)
And it broke me in two
(in two)
I'm in love with love
So look out baby, It's gonna break you too

We're huddled up on benches
We're saying our prayers
Two lovers in the mist
With the salt in their hair

I'm in love I'm in love

And it broke me in two
I'm in love I'm in love
It's gonna break you too
Yes it will

The waves are breaking in a foreign tongue
Understand but I'm feeling numb.
If your love was a ship
I'd pull your anchor and hang on to it

I'm in love with love
(I'm in love)
And it broke me in two
(in two)
I'm in love with love
So look out baby
It's gonna break you too

I'm in love with love
(I'm in love)
And it broke me in two
(In two)
I'm in love with love
So look out baby
It's gonna break you too

Oh I'm feelin' love
I'm feeling the love babe
Yeah, I'm feeling love

Meh.

OUCH!  Like the Dandy Warhols on valium. Mental note for the Dandy Warhols: Don't do valium!

Mr. Parker and Mr. Escovedo are actually touring as a double-bill at the moment.

too much cheese in this salad...
Can't wait to see Alejandro this weekend at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival.  One mainstage and two workshops.  His show at the Starlite Room last year was killer.  
I saw these guys at the xpn Festival in Camden this summer. They rocked the stage!
Alejandro is one of my few remaining auto-buy artists, so I have this on shiny plastic, haven't listened through it yet.

Update: Fantastic album.  Must get some more tracks on the playlist here, starting with "Street Songs", which is the kickiest thing ever from Alejandro. 

Worst album cover in years, though. 

From now until June 29 you can stream this album at npr {#Sunny}

always love to hear my neighbor!
"If love was a ship I'd pull your anchor and christen it" - cracking cheese, Gromit :o). Nice rockin' sound, but the clunky metaphor is unintentionally funny.

Don´t miss his earlier stuff, he´s a great man. Nice to have him back again.
 
I agree, nalle - His "With These Hands" is excellent - especially the song "Guilty." He came highly recommended by Jackson Browne.

That's what music is all about, IMHO.  Some people are just too much in their heads about everything, including music.  Too bad.

Don´t miss his earlier stuff, he´s a great man. Nice to have him back again.

I agree.   I will reserve my judgement until I have heard the song a few times.   I really don't see how you can form an opinion less than a minute into a song   {#Think}

I was thinking Nick Caveish.
Graham Parkerish....{#Laughing}
