So many great tunes and lyrics here
“In the end it took me a dictionary / to find out the meaning of unrequited”
“I saw two shooting stars last night / I wished on them but they were only satellites / it’s wrong to wish on space hardware / I wish, I wish, I wish you’d care”
“Outside the patient millions / who put them into power / expect a bit more for their taxes / like school boards, beds in hospitals, and peace in our bloody time / all they get is old men grinding axes”
He always manages to mix romantic longing and progressive politics in a way that speaks to me directly.
