"I libri hanno gli stessi nemici degli uomini: il fuoco, l'umido, le bestie, il tempo ed il loro stesso contenuto." ( Paul Valéry, 1871-1945)

 

(se permetti...soprattutto le bestie, caro Paul...)

Book Of Love-Peter Gabriel

The book of love is long and boring

No one can lift the damn thing

It's full of charts and facts and figures and instructions for dancing

But I

I love it when you read to me

And you

You can read me anything

The book of love has music in it

In fact that's where music comes from

Some of it is just transcendental

Some of it is just really dumb

But I

I love it when you sing to me

And you

You can sing me anything

The book of love is long and boring

And written very long ago

It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes

And things we're all too young to know

But I

I love it when you give me things

And you

You ought to give me wedding rings

And I

I love it when you give me things

And you

You ought to give me wedding rings

And I

I love it when you give me things

And you

You ought to give me wedding rings
