In honor of Neutral Milk Hotel's reunion tour, I've recorded my rendition of my favorite song of theirs.

lyrics

Daddy, please hear this song that I sing.
In your heart, there's a spark that just screams
For a lover to bring a child to your chest that could lay as you sleep
And love all you have left like your boy used to be
Long ago wrapped in sheets warm and wet

Blister, please, with those wings in your spine
Love to be with a brother of mine.
How he'd love to find your tongue in his teeth
In a struggle to find secret songs that you keep wrapped in boxes so tight
Sounding only at night as you sleep .

And in my dreams, you're alive and you're crying
As your mouth moves in mine, soft and sweet.
Rings of flowers 'round your eyes
And I'll love you for the rest of your life when you're ready

Brother, see we are one in the same
And you left with your head filled with flames
And you watched as your brains fell out through your teeth
Push the pieces in place
Make your smile sweet to see
Don't you take this away
I'm still wanting my face on your cheek

And when we break, we'll wait for our miracle.
God is a place where some holy spectacle lies.
When we break, we'll wait for our miracle.
God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life

Two headed boy, she is all you could need.
She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires
And retire to sheets safe and clean,
But don't hate her when she gets up to leave.
