thirty-four: “lover’s spit” by broken social scene.

love padlocks on the pont de l'archevêché. 27 march 2012.

The first time I heard “Lover’s Spit,” by Broken Social Scene was during an episode of Queer as Folk. When the episode ended, I scoured the internet for the name of the song. It was when I finally located it that I listened to it on repeat for weeks.

To this day, I still listen to it on repeat for hours at a time when the mood strikes. In my humble opinion, it’s one of the most beautiful songs ever written. It’s also the version with Feist on the lead vocals that breaks my heart every time.

All these people drinking lover’s spit
They sit around and clean their face with it
And they listen to teeth to learn how to quit
tied to a night they never met

You know it’s time
that we grow old and do some shit
I like it all that way

All these people drinking lover’s spit
Swallowing words while giving head
They listen to teeth to learn how to quit
tied to a night they never met

You know it’s time
that we grow old and do some shit
I like it all that way
