The Librarian

from by Honor Finnegan



Mid-tempo folk rock. A galloping, accordion-laced plea for access to the inner sanctum of one sexy bibliophile. Alas, the emotionally unavailable bookworm evades her again and again.


I love the librarian
A quiet, gentle well­-read man
He's sweet and supernova smart
His fingers like a work of art
I wish he were an open book
And I could sit all day and look
Perusing paragraph and page
To read his eyes his hands his face
I am lost again
O don't know what row
I can't find the pin
I don't have a way in
Need isbn
The librarian
The librarian
A story's waiting to unfold
The book of love is still on hold
I've searched in every single stack
Maybe someone forgot to bring it back
I skim the text, then lose my place
I bought a bookmark, just in case
To highlight, still i am confused
The copy that I found is more than gently used
I am lost again
I don't know what row
i can't find the pin
i don't have a way in
So I start again
The librarian
The librarian
I scan the nuance of his gaze
Cross reference, research, and appraise
Translate the language of each pose
Ich liebe dich
A rose is still a rose
I am lost again
I don't know the code
I can't find the pin
I don't have a way in
Oh my god, je t'aime
The librarian
The librarian
Won't you let me in
The library...shh
