Sometimes a song just wants to be a little silly. This is definitely a “love song”, but it’s one that gets solidly goofy. I think the goofiness was needed to fully capture the joy.
45 years ago Paul McCartney sang “you’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs.” I hope the “people” are ready for another one…
Thanks to Andrew Hanmer for the groovy drums, Kane Stanley for the sparkly percussion, and Shelley Lotus & Vicki McMaken for the shiny backup vocals!
MICROSCOPES AND ANTIDOTES If I was dying, I would want you by my side I'd want the world to know that I was satisfied Don't listen to the weatherman He don't know about never-ever land My fortune hovers over me quietly Like Canada above If you were tiny I would wear you on my sleeve And all the cynics they would line up to believe Microscopes and antidotes The truth is just another hoax But you are a reminder that Magic can be found most anywhere You are my shine Your words they are my lifeline If I was wicked, I would tie you to a tree And I would tickle you just to hear you scream I wanna feel your every move I wanna be the tongue inside your groove My love for you is science You are a body of evidence My theory is proven time and again If you were waiting, I would wait with you all night I would follow you from darkness into light Kick the can across the floor Fall down and come back up for more I don't care where I'm going As long as I am getting there with you You are my shine Your words they are my lifeline
