about

Read Lewis Hyde's The Gift and reduced his philosophy of art to a song about a chick.

lyrics

I met you
And I went mad
Had to give you everything
Everything I had
And you gave me your hand
I felt the fire burn
Didn’t know what
You’d demand in return

Down in your lending chambers
I want to turn the tables
Don’t want to sign no papers
That’s no way to start

Thought you gave me your love
But it was a usury of the heart

Now I’m lost
And I’m dejected
Couldn’t take the cost
You collected
But I’d take you back
If I was able
If we could work out something
Under the table

Thought you gave me your love
But it was a usury of the heart

There’s no time to lose
Girl you’ve got to choose
You want a living breathing love
Or just a shiny substitute?

How can you turn a profit?
What good do you get off it?
How can you stop a loving feeling
Once it starts?

Thought you gave me your love
But it was a usury of the heart
