the cutest

I was listening to Prairie Home Companion last weekend and they sang a ton of songs, including a wierd and awesome one called “Todd” (as in Palin), “So long” to some guy I never heard of, and a couple hymns.  But the cutest one, which I had never heard before, went like this.

Who knows how long I’ve loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime?
If you want me to I will.

For if I ever saw you
I didn’t catch your name
But it never really mattered
I will always feel the same.

Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we’re together
Love you when we’re apart.

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
You know I will
I will.

Yeah… it’s the Beatles.  What kind of person raised by my parents’ generation has never heard the entire White Album?  A person raised by Fundies, that’s who.  Thanks a lot, Jesus Movement, for making my dad “go the wrong way and end up in Albuquerque,” as he puts it these days.
