Parades Go By
The Magnetic Fields Lyrics


I'll linger here your ring upon my finger dear and sing till dawn
A song of you and me and what and why for time is all I have to keep
Between these walls and half asleep the days go by a million little

Nights and days go by and I don't mind Parades go by So many beautiful
Parades go by Leave me behind I'll sit and stare how could I venture
Anywhere and let the centuries fall where they may but never die
For I have loved and so I lost the world above beyond the moss

The Magnetic Fields - Parades go By (Day 17 of 69 Love Songs)

Starts off, or should I say, "I Can Change" by LCD Soundsystem starts off the same way as this. Really mesmerizing, I never liked the more electronic songs on this album upon first listen, but the quirky little melody behind this, the silent acoustic guitar, it's all really beautiful. Reminds me of "The Divine Comedy" too!

"I'll linger here
Your ring upon my finger dear
And sing till dawn
A song of you and me and what and why"
