"47" as written by Jeremy Enigk, William Goldsmith, Dan Hoerner and Nate Mendal....
Swallow whole
Lose myself in you
Take a chance
Take a chance with me

Poured out in wine
Chance to run away
Take a breath
Take a breath
Same sign

Hair of gold swims through
Caught in my mind
Painted picture prize
Jewels on a crown
Poisened wine
I fall to the floor
Caught a glimpse of truth

Swallow whole
Lose myself in you
Take a breath
Take a breath
Same sign

Hair of gold swims through
Caught in my mind
Painted picture prize
Jewels on a crown
Poisened wine
I fall to the floor
Caught a glimpse of truth

Hair of gold
Hair of gold

    General Commentyou people!!! you have to be retarded. the meaning is clear, read the song, listen to the song, listen to the emotion that jeremy puts into all his music. jeremy's not one to cry about realizing that you're better than something, this song is about being obsessed with someone, you've got that part right liddy, but it's not realizing that she's not all she was cracked up to be that's got him down, it's realizing that she's too good for him and he's begging her to give him a chance that he could be worthy if he really tried. so try thinking, i'm sure you're mind is deeper than the kiddy pool liddy.

    General Commenti think this song is about being obsessed with someone, and then slowly realizing that they are not all they were cracked up to be. something little exposes them to you. idk, thats my take on it. but it could mean a lot of things, thats what so great about sdre's lyrics, they are so abstract that they can be interpreted in many different ways. you can fit them with what you can relate to. anyways, its a kick ass song.

    General CommentThe imagery in this song is beautiful.
    And I would guess you're right about thinking that she's too good for him, because every description is glorified to make her seem like... royalty.

    General Commenti dunno.. it seems to be a story to me.
    it starts with him going up to the girl he admires and asking her out, and everything is wonderfull, except he does see some terrible flaw in her... "Caught a glimpse of truth"
    but when it comes down to it, he really doesn't care and just goes with "oh dang, she's pretty"
    hair of gold, hair of gold
    ...

    i suppose
