lyrics

If I compiled a book of all the very best kisses I've known,
I'd read that over and over, for sure.
If I gave you a pen and a page, what would go in yours,
What would go in your book, babe?
I'd read yours too, study up on you.
I'd like to get up into your mind, get your squishy brain to spoon up on mine, and they could read together.
It's kind of my dream...dream lover.

Library Lover, how can I get up on you, we're not supposed to talk in here
Library Lover, I want to bring out the best in you; it's the way that you read, that does it for me.

And if I'm just a page that your finger licks away
Well, I'll be damned if I don't dog-ear and do my best to hold your place.
I just want to know that your world is built of words like mine is
and we can meet in a reality of someone else's imagining.
Let's just find an etiology that's true - enough - true enough for me and you.

Library Lover, how can I get up on you, we're not supposed to talk in here
Library Lover, I want to bring out the best in you; it's the way that you read, that does it for me.

I want to underline my favourite passages for you
I want to read all your marginalia
Just scuff up your page a little bit, baby
Shh shh we're not supposed to talk in here
Slip me under the cover.
