gender bend this

27 Mar

on a recent podcast from NPR music I heard Bonnie “prince” Billy perform, the girl in me.  he described it as a song he wrote about a man who is singing about how he is attracted to the manly things in a woman and she sings about how she is attracted to the womanly things in the man.  it’s a lovely duet with a woman named as Cheyenne.  the music is lovely, but the lyrics really moved me and actually i would like to hear this song sung by two women.

There’s a girl in me
That’s makes me wear bright colors when I walk the streets
And there’s a girl in me that makes me want to feel you deep inside of me
And there’s a girl in me, makes me pose before a mirror, like a movie star
And makes me want to dance around the pole instead of sitting at the bar.

Well the man in me must love the girl in you.

Cause there’s someone in me that sees you without clothes and sees what I should be and heaven only knows what will become of me

Cause there’s a man in me that wants to dominate you
And put you in your place
And there’s a man in me that wishes I had a beard and mustache on my face
And there’s a man in me that gets short of breath in the girls locker room
And wants you to be the bride and me to be the groom

Well the girl in me must love the man in you

Cause there’s someone in me that sees you without clothes and sees what I should be
And heaven only knows what will become of me cause there’s someone in me that other’s knew was not the way that I should be.
God chose for me a color and lord knows that she may not agree
We should explore our mirror sexuality
But we can share our secrets in our privacy.
The girl in me must love the man in you.
The man in me must love the girl in you.
The you in me must love the me in you.
