floating girlfriends

Any Available Surface
The Mountain Goats

any available surface - the mountain goats

i waved at you when you hit the disappearing point
turned in for the night the next day around ten
i caught the sweet scent of your hair on my pillowcase
felt so much in love i felt like myself again
someday the only thing i wanna rely upon
is any available surface that you’ve rested your head on

back in the cave i traced the arc of our awakening
shimmering down in the darkness, like hidden gold
and i said my secret to myself out loud again
we may live to see miracles, if our faith can hold
someday the only thing i want to rely upon
is any available surface that you rested your head on

Ok, but how cool would it be to be ruby
–your girlfriend FLOATS
–and even though there’s millions of you, the rare sapphire chose YOU
–like you saved her life and she didn’t just brush it off and walk away, she ran away with you and spent thousands of years with you
–she never left or anything
–and even though you don’t feel special, SHE thinks you’re special
–SAPPHIRE spending thousands of years with you even if you feel like you don’t deserve her
–just, can we talk about how luck ruby is
