"and it won't be long"
« on: July 31, 2007, 03:38:15 PM »
Knowing the lyrics to When You Sleep helped me to hear one particular line in each verse differently: "and it won't be long". I can't remember what I thought Bilinda and Kevin sang before, but back then I heard the line sung in a different way. It's funny to me that I never noticed that the two singers sang the word "long" like "LoNNnng". I have a whole new appreciation for the song now. Weird.

I've always thought the exact lyrics were inconsequential, as I quite like being able to interperet them as I please.

And totally off topic, but you're username is amazing.

+1 on the username :)

and yeah, one of my favourite things about MBV is that the lyrics really don't matter at all.
"I want to be ear-raped (in a good way) by You Made Me Realize in a field in Laois"

I'm going to step up to the plate and make the embarassing statement that I don't understand the username, and I humbly request that someone explain it to me so that I no longer have to sit back in obscurity wondering why it is good.

The meaning is simple: Your dreams are available to re-view on VHS.

If only we could tape dreams to watch back. I've had many that I'm sure David Lynch fans would have found entertaining.
