all of my hope for you
and now I ask of you
who could possibly refuse,
a matchbook proposal as such?
is it in his kiss?
know that it's not the way
and you're not listening,
to a word I say

I've been on an neutral kick,
I've been nice and all over it
then I realized,
it's dead (over)
get out of it!
if you dont soon enough,
then I realized
I haven't seen anyone I need now (is worth it to me).

pleasantly bored,
simmer away
I apologize
remember the laughter,
and the innocence
as will I, of course
its better in the long run,

well I've decided,
that anyone,
who would ever even,
consider asking me that,
d' be able to scoop me up,
in his fingertips,
and cut me in two,
or maybe three,
four to be safe

and I will run to Ohio
and I will become Texas if I must
and I will paint you blue, to mark the sky
to simmer away...

    General Commenti got these lyrics by ear. on the insert it just says 'words by florence chien'. ive tried about a thousand different searches, but never found the real lyrics. some of them are most definitly wrong. this song is one of my favorite ever, if not the best song ive ever heard. the passion and emotion in this song just blow me away everytime. its very nostalgic and powerful.
