LOVE IN THE LIBRARY  Jimmy Buffett

[1994]     On the c[Bm]orner of Government and B[A]ay Avenue
The old d[Bm]oomsday fanatic wore a c[A]rown of kudzu
S[D]irens were w[A]ailing in the G[E]ulf Coastal h[A]eat
And it s[G]eemed like the w[D]hole world was i[E]n forced retreat
Paid no attention, revolved through the door
Past the newspaper racks on the worn marble floor
Near Civil War history my heart skipped a beat
She was standing in fiction stretched high on bare feet
L[D]ove in the l[A]ibrary
Q[E]uiet and c[A]ool
L[D]ove in the l[A]ibrary
T[E]here are no r[A]ules
Surr[E]ounded by s[A]tories
Surr[E]eal and subl[A]ime
I fell in l[D]ove in the l[A]ibrary
O[E]nce upon a t[A]ime
I was the pirate, she was the queen
Sir Francis and Elizabeth, the best there's ever been
Then she strolled past my table and stopped at the stairs
Then sent me a smile as she reached for Flaubert
Love in the library
Quiet and cool
Love in the library
There are no rules
Surrounded by stories
Surreal and sublime
I fell in love in the library
Once upon a time
Solo: Bm A Bm A
She gathered her books, walked while she read
Words never spoken, but so much was said
You can read all you want into this rendezvous
But it's safer than most things that lovers can do
Well stories have endings, fantasies fade
And the guard by the door starts drawing the shade
So write your own ending and hope it comes true
For the lovers and strangers on Bay Avenue
Love in the library
Quiet and cool
Love in the library
There are no rules
Surrounded by stories
Surreal and sublime
I fell in love in the library
Once upon a time
Surrounded by stories
Surreal and sublime
I fell in love in the library
Once upon a time
