My Shepherd by The New Pornographers

My Shepherd by The New Pornographers
from their album Together

Glass-work shards decorate this house
We're tossing lust darts out windows
The splash and jangle of the secret signs
Defined, you claimed, some golden ages
A promise
You always love short story form
The signs behind it, the hidden bars
You live for flaming, the attractions new
The leather's pulled from a secret room
Closed eyes stare into morning sun
When the darts formed into connections
If I'm honest you come to mind, but baby I'm not
If I'm honest you come to mind, but baby I'm not
The ink draft's polished into working script
We stare in wonder at the steps we skipped
Tripping wires we have so carefully crossed
The science behind it at a perfect loss
You're my lord, you're my shepherd
Careful kid, no one gets hurt
You made me
You're my lord, you're my shepherd
Careful kid, no one gets hurt
You made me
Used up all of the French we took
The signs behind it was a dirty look
Songe pas de Rock n Roll
Songe pas de Rock n Roll au revoir
You're my lord, you're my shepherd
Careful kid, no one gets hurt
You made me
You're my lord, you're my shepherd
Careful kid, no one gets hurt
You made me
You're my lord, you're my shepherd
Careful kid, no one gets hurt
You made me
You're my lord, you're my shepherd
Careful kid, no one gets hurt
You made me this way
Try to fail
Try to fail
Try to fail
Try to fail
Try to fail
Try to fail

I had no idea Alicia had such a cool friend. The New Pornographers are one of the most amazing bands ever. Alicia doesn't like the name of the band, therefore we don't talk about it a lot.

Well thank you Justin! I love the band! The name is pretty rank, but I like to think that they're introducing a new addiction to replace the ugly old one. I think Alicia is one awesome chica, so you must be pretty cool to have snagged her!

um...hi guys..just a thought, and with no offense intended, but it's a prejudice against the word that makes it "rank" (lol...i love that word, but haven't heard it used that way in a while)...if you think about it...at least for me..it makes perfect sense. I refer to the 3rd entry in Merriam-Websters for "pornography":

3 : the depiction of acts in a sensational manner so as to arouse a quick intense emotional reaction

hmm. Actually, i think that pretty much says it all.

btw, yes, this album is awesomazingly pure rok, and I can't quit listening to it.

ok- iz mai 2 sintz. Please resume your normal lives.
