Where is the one that will mourn me when I’m gone
Who will pour water on my bed of dirt
Who will breathe fire on my neck at night

I heard someone say there’s a chance that I will meet her
I could be Persephone and she Demeter
Pull me from the underground that I call home

Her name is no one,
No one
No one
She blinds me with her eyes 'cause she's
The one
The one
She lives somewhere not here
Not here
Not here

My lovers are as smooth
As a politician's tongue
The more I look for goodness
The more that I find none

I heard someone say
That she's honest and good
Heard someone say
That she's honest and good
Heard someone say
That she's honest and good

Her name is no one
No one
No one
Her name is no one
No one
No one
No one
No one
No one
No one
Her name is no one,
No one
No one
She blinds me with her eyes 'cause she's
The one
The one
She lives somewhere not here
Not here
Not here
Not here
Not here

I measure out my days
With sips of a corona
I'm pretty sure she drives
An old fucked up corolla
To pull me from the underground
That I call home

I've a funny feeling
There's no chance that I will meet her
So I'll measure out my nights
To my metronome's meter

Her name is no one
Her name is no one
Her name is no one

    General CommentI think this is one of those songs that can be interpreted any way the listener wants to for their particular situation.

    However, I think the intended meaning of the song is kind of an angsty sarcasm about not being able to find the perfect girl.

    The singer starts out by asking where the girl for him is, and then talks about all the things people tell him the girl for him will be like; like the way people always say that there's a better, perfect, person out there for you.

    I think that the reason he says her name is "No one" and that she "lives somewhere not here" is because he's saying that the perfect girl doesn't really exist, and he can't find anyone for him.
