The Hold Steady - Chillout Tent
Day 6 brings us the song with one of my favorite THS verses:
She looked just like a baby bird
all new and wet and trying to light a Parliament.
He quoted her some poetry
he’s Tennyson in denim and sheepskin.
He looked a lot like Izzy Stradlin.
They started kissing when the nurses took off their IVs
It was kinda sexy but it was kinda creepy.
Their mouths were fizzy with the cherry cola
They had the privacy of bedsheets
All the other kids were mostly in comas.
