I Like You ('Cos You Like Books)

Wrote this after a bad break-up, about two years ago.

I sat down and asked myself, "Well, OK, so what do you think would've happened if you stayed together -- gotten married, had kids, sat at her deathbed?" This is what I came up with. It was also my first attempt at copying the Heavy-Duty Harry Nilsson Songwriting Methodâ„¢.

This is right up my alley, strange production, and some interesting chords in here as well.

"What is she think... ing?" Heh.

Ten bonus points from writing the first song ever to feature a correct pronunciation of "Nabokov".
