here she comes breakin through my window
in the early morning hours
for the moment, i am disrupted
but in time she'll make me smile

all the wonderous animals
roamin' round the earth
bring us songs of calm
they do no wrong
they do no wrong

you don't know just how much i miss you
yah my stomach aches in your absence
i don't know what i'd do without you
cause i'd have no one to follow

you are my love
i hold you above
everything and everyone
yeah everyone
everyone

hear outside all the kids are playin
they're my wake up call each day
look at them,
their little lives begining
i have watched them over years

blooming like sweet roses
dryin their wet noses
no thought of the cold
yeah i feel old
i feel old

yesterday we found a hidden passage
and i opened my sleepy eyes
through the trees parrots swept up past us
and the gardens there smelled good

all the pretty houses
decoratively coloured
tonight i want no other
than my own
than my own

    General CommentThis is a great song. I heard this in the Steve Martin movie Shopgirl. It was great to hear another Mark Kozelek band, as I've always been a big fan of Red House Painters. Its tone is gritty, but the words and his voice are just sweet (and you can pick his voice out of a thousand others). The song rocks.
