Neutral Milk Hotel — “Two-Headed Boy Pt. Two”

and in my dreams, you’re alive and you’re crying
as your mouth moves in mine, soft and sweet
rings of flowers ‘round your eyes and
I’ll love you for the rest of your life
when you’re ready

And ‘cuz one time when I was about 12 years old I was at this pot smoking church camp, and they used to give you this bag of shit from like [unintelligible] and Robert sent me this picture, drew this picture of me walking around naked with it buttoned on my head and he told me that he loved me, and this song sort of takes place there anyway

"I love how your eyes close whenever you kiss me
And when I’m away from you, I love how you miss me
I love the way your kiss is always heavenly
But darling, most of all, I love how you love me

I love how your heart beats whenever I hold you
I love how you think of me without being told to
I love the way your touch is always tenderly
But darling, most of all, I love how you love me

I love how your eyes close each time that you kiss me
And when I’m away from you, I love how you miss me
I love the way your kiss is always heavenly
But darling, most of all, I love how you love me”
