Lyrics[edit | edit source]

You're an empty promise
You're an easy chair
You're the gods forces
Struck down somewhere

You're a secret noticed
You're a mystery sky
You're a wish floating
Up to the night

Medellia of my eyes
You're the emptiness of I
You're the reason that I write
And if you say you will
I would love you still

And if I could
I'd throw away this world
I'd dress you all in pearls
I'd give you what you wanted

You're all I notice
In a crowded room
Your vacant motives
Unmoved, revealed

Medellia of my eyes
You're the emptiness of I
You're the reason that I drive
And if you say you will
I would love you still

And if I just could
Be anything for you
Just anyone at all
Anything that mattered, washed out

You're the silly reasons
In a goldfish laugh
You're the ageless seasons
At rest, at last
