Everything little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me
And even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Everything little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me
And even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Come on Petunia, you thought in your head
it would all be so easy if you could be led
to the cave where I'd hide you in linens and frames
and in new combinations I've made of our names
it's a tiny hole, yeah, but you'd fit
if I sliced you up real itty bitty
I'd sliver and splice you and then you'd be many
and I'd be the one who was privy to love you
and show you the fun

Everything little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me
And even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Jamie, he stood on the stoop
and he challenged his homies
to go get some girlfriends
and locate their yonis
the waters are parting and time's getting heated
the boys needed friendship
their beat needed meated (uh uh)
her dress was a ship at sail (uh)
her knees were the water pail
this was survival and she was the kit
you could die of thirst if the girls won't give you sips

Everything little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me
And even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolve to call her up
a thousand times a day
I thought I'd ask her if she'd marry me
in some old fashioned way
Well, but, my silent fears were cysted
and before I reached the phone
like before my tongue has twisted why must I always be alone

Mmm
You're all Jenny and Lyndsay and fine
and I'm underwater, I'm shedding my mind
and I'm pretty sure, baby, if you'd hold my head
I could live like I've wished for and undo my dread
cause I see candygrams up in the ceiling tiles
witty postcards sent off from the Sandwich Isles
and these towns where vacations will lead us
I'll hold out my treasures and their welfare feed us
but oh she does what she wishes
and, no, she won't be your misses
the kingdom, it widens and there they're alone with all that love and the void on the throne

Everything little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me
And even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Everything little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me
And even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

    General CommentI love how she sings it, even though it's a guy loving a girl to death and her rejecting him.

    I feel like this whole thing is about puberty, when guys frist realize that girls turn them on and they all want girlfriends. The song is about one guy who thinks he had the perfect girl and secretly obsess about her, but she doesn't know he exists.

    General CommentThis is irrelevant, but the use of the name Petunia and the mention of magic made me think of Harry Potter :)

    General CommentI like this better than the Police. It's just got that awesome cool groove. Khaela has a nice way of making things her own.

    I think it's "my silent fears persisted" though...

    General CommentI have some corrections.

    It's "if I sliced you up WEE itty bitty"
    "Jamie stood on his stoop"
    "the beat needed meeted"
    "my silent fears persisted"
    "witty postcards sent off from the sandwich isles"
    "I'll hold out my treasures and their wealth will feed us"
    "Your kingdom it widens and you're there alone with all
    that love, and the void on your throne"

    General CommentYou're all jenny and lindsey and fine and I'm underwater, shedding my mind. And I'm pretty sure baby if you'd hold my head I could live like I've wished for and undo my dread, because, I see candygrams up in the ceiling tiles, witty postcards sent off from the sandwich isles. In these towns where vacations will lead us, I'll hold out my treasures and their wealth will feed us. But, oh, she does as she wishes, and no, she won't be your missus. You kingdom it widens and you're there alone with all that love, and the void on your throne.

    General Commentokay, i love this so much. i just looked up the police's song (didn't know it was a cover) and it doesn't even sound remotely the same. khaela is amazing. i am obsessed with this song.
