Newly added to the repertoire.

“Go ‘way from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I’m not the one you want, babe
I’m not the one you need
You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Who’s never weak but always strong
To protect you and defend you
Whether you are right or wrong

Someone to open each and every door
But it ain’t me, babe
No, no, no, it ain’t me babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe.

Go lightly from the ledge, babe
Go lightly on the ground
I’m not the one you want, babe
I will only let your down

You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Who will promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you
Someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you and more
But it ain’t me, babe
No, no, no, it ain’t me babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe.

Go melt back into the night
Everything inside is made of stone
There’s nothing in here moving
And anyway I’m not alone
You say you’re looking for someone
Who’ll pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly
And to come each time you call
A lover for you life and nothing more
But it ain’t me, babe
No, no, no, it ain’t me, babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe
.”

~It Ain’t Me, Babe
Bob Dylan, as heard by Fleet Foxes on YouTube

Nothing makes a summer night feel sexier than Minus the Bear.

Well, almost nothing, anyway.

“Coins I could drop shake in my pocket,
They shake like you do
Steps that you take bend and they break,
They break like I do

Running out of excuses
When we know what the truth is
I’m into you
When you hear this song,
You’ll say you knew all along,
You’re into me too” 

~Excuses
Minus the Bear,  Omni

This record ceases to be irrelevant, it may be my favorite of theirs, despite the fact “Highly Refined Pirates” won me over first. Of course, their next tour is stopping at Water Street in Rochester, and nowhere less than 90 minutes from Harrisburg. 
Too bad. They put on a suitably sexy show.
