I’m in Love with a Fictional Character

The first song written expressly for The Wetsuits, Fictional Character, penned November 19, 21, 22 & December 15, 2009, tackled a peculiar condition that I believe hasn’t been properly addressed in our culture.

 

I didn’t know what it meant to be alive

Till she was introduced halfway through Chapter 5

I agree with virtually every thought she thinks

I love how she says only the most relevant things

 

Don’t act as though I’ve got a problem on my hands

Isn’t this a feeling everybody understands?

 

I’m in love with a fictional character

The absurdity of which has yet to register

I’m in love with a fictional character

Don’t give me that look – I’m sure it’s happened to you

I’m sure it’s happened to you and you and you

 

Way too much time elapsed between

Her appearance in print and on the big screen

Though I fell first for the original creation

I was equally smitten by her adaptation

 

Don’t act as though I’ve got a problem on my hands

Isn’t this a feeling everybody understands?

 

I’m in love with a fictional character…

 

I’m not naïve, I know she can’t be my wife

Not having been endowed with the gift of life

Short of that she’s got everything I could ever need

I don’t see why this is so hard to believe

 

Don’t act as though I’ve got a problem on my hands

Isn’t this a feeling everybody understands?

 

I’m in love with a fictional character…
