Day 110 - Judy and the Dream of Horses

Ever since I learned how to read, I've stayed up way too late doing it. I used to read for hours under the covers when I was younger, or by a nightlight or the hallway light leaking in under the door. I learned to recognize family member's footsteps in order to know when I needed to hide and when I would be okay. I don't need to be so covert about it anymore, and more often than not I fall asleep before I get too far, but I love reading before I fall asleep. The only problem is that, if it's compelling, you have to stay up :)

 

and yeah... that's Lolita... that and Pale Fire are two of my favorite books ever. I love Vladimir Nabokov, and not for the shock value.

 

I have been on a huge Belle & Sebastian kick lately.

 

Judy wrote the saddest song

She showed it to a boy in school today

Judy, where did you go wrong?

You used to make me smile when I was down

Judy was a teenage rebel

She did it with a boy when she was young

She gave herself to books and learning

She gave herself to being number one

Judy, I don't know you if you're going to show me everything

Judy, I don't know you if you're going to show me everything

 

Judy got a book at school

She went under the cover with her torch

She fell asleep until it was morning

She dreamt about the girl who stole a horse

Judy never felt so good except when she was sleeping

Judy never felt so good except when she was sleeping

 

Judy, let's go for a walk

We can kiss and do whatever you want

But you will be disappointed

You will fall asleep with ants in your pants

Judy, you're just trying to find and keep the dream of horses

And the song she wrote was Judy and the Dream of Horses

Dream of horses

Dream of horses

 

The best looking boys are taken

The best looking girls are staying inside

So, Judy, where does that leave you?

Walking the street from morning to night

With a star upon your shoulder lighting up the path that you walk

With a parrot on your shoulder saying everything when you talk

If you're ever feeling blue

Then write another song about your dream of horses

Write a song about your dream of horses

Call it Judy And The Dream Of Horses

Call it Judy And The Dream Of Horses

You dream of horses
