      About "Love In The Library"

      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "Love In The Library"

      On the corner of Government and Bay Avenue
      The old doomsday fanatic wore a crown of kudzu
      Sirens where wailing in the gulf coastal heat
      And it seemed like the whole world was in forced retreat
      I paid no attention, revolved through the door
      Passed the newspaper rack on the worn marble floor
      Near civil war history my heart skipped a beat
      She was standing on fiction stretched high on bare feet

      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

      I was the pirate and 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

      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 and fantasies fade
      The guard by the door starts drawing the shade
      So write your own ending and hope they come 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
