A cautionary tale for anyone who may be thinking about living with a musician.

LIVING IN SONGLAND (Mike Borok)

I saw my ex-boyfriend
By the fountain in the park
He was dressed in the same clothes
Still playing the same guitar
I said, "I've been thinking about you
So, tell me how you are"
And he said, "La la la la la la la
La la la la la"

He was living in Songland
Didn't hear a word I said
He was living in Songland
Music filled his head

We used to live together
One bedroom, up four flights
But I got tired of a thousand bugs running
When I turned on the kitchenette light
So I packed up my suitcase
Got a job downtown
I think it took him two or three days
To notice I was gone

He was living in Songland
Didn't hear a word I said
He was living in Songland
Music filled his head

Now I listen to the radio
As they play one of his songs
I used to think the words were dumb
But now I sing along

Guess I'm living in Songland
Didn't hear a word he said
I'm living in Songland
Music fills my head

We're living in Songland
We should be working but instead
We're all living in Songland
Music fills our heads
We're living in Songland
