My name:  Brian Martin

Musical Interlude

Romance

And so I just decided to myself
I'd hide it to myself
And never talk about it
And didn't I go and shout it
When you walked into the room
"I think I love you!"

- "I Think I Love You" by The Partridge Family


Obsession

Who made you?
God made you.
Why did God make you?
God. Made you. For me.

- "God Made You For Me" by The Catholic Girls


Poetry

Take my shoes off
And throw them in the lake
And I'll be
Two steps on the water

- "Hounds of Love" by Kate Bush


Metaphor

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death

- "Time" by Pink Floyd


Mystery

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before, my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am

- "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins


Sex

You know, baby, driving is a serious game

- "I Love You" by Yello


Young Love

You know, it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But let's talk about it

- "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by The Beach Boys


Tragicomedy

 

I couldn't take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my god
And on my mother's grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore I would love you to the end of time

So now I'm praying for the end of time

- "Paradise By the Dashboard Light" by Meatloaf
