"Marigold" as written by and Kevin Coyne....
Aesthetic perfection has fooled me once again.
You'll always be the only one who feels like home.
And with your hollow words and your plastic smile,
You have the most beautiful name I've ever cursed.
Yet I wait for you to find your way into my arms.

And I'd wait here till you find your way.
I would wait here all my life,
I'd spend the rest of my days praying
For an end to this mystery.

Through this dichotomy has brought me to my knees.
You'll always be the only one who feels like home.
And still the season's change and with it does your charm.
Summer's end has come and with it misery.
Yet I wait for you to find your way into my arms.

And I'd wait here till you find your way.
I would wait here all my life,
I'd spend the rest of my days praying
For an end to this mystery.

You must find a way back into my arms again,
I'd give anything just to feel that warmth again.

And I'd wait here till you find your way.
I would wait here all my life,
I'd spend the rest of my days praying
For an end to this mystery.

    General Comment["Aesthetic perfection has fooled me once again."] He is drawn in by her looks, which normally turns out to be a bad idea, but she has come to mean everything to him. And as empty as she seems, he still longs for her, ["Yet I wait for you to find your way into my arms."] He continues to be torn between knowing that she is fake, cold, and empty and the fact that he needs her, ["Though this dichotomy has brought me to my knees,"] he continues to want her back ["you'll always be the only one who feels like home"].

    General Comment"your aesthetic perfection has fooled me once again" aesthetic means for show/looks, perfection well, we all know what that means.
    I think this line is about how she was so perfect, but it was all for show.

    General Commenti partially disagree with boothx, i feel this song isnt about someone not feeling the same, its about the guy wanting his girlfriend back, hence dichotomy which means seperation, so obviously they had something at a point
