they finally found you
just as the air is coldest at dawn
it was colder still for all the weeks that you were gone
my arms with marigold
there was one secret that even your sister never knew
throughout the forty-six day mystery of you
the better part of a bottle of gin
blue tarp and parts of you within
banging down the frontage road
haute couture had a kingdom
and you were its crown
you're going down in history
was it your golden smile they'd remember?
tall bones and bright eyes, no
it was the six weeks' mystery of you
you're going down in history

    General CommentThe way he sings it is amazing, but when you listen to the song it makes more sense, like, certain words are detached from the sentences to make tw different ones, that you can't see here. Like hell say you're going down..... In history. It makes you feel like he knew them really well, like when he says my haute couture had a kingdom, and you were its crown. I think if it was a random person he'd say are. I can't decide if he killed them because he loves them or hates them, but he knew itd make them famous, so maybe he loved them and wanted them to be famous!
