You open up your eyes and you're underneath a first class seat,
Your yellow hair and purple eyes are bleeding defeat,
Your mother always told you that freedom was just a lie,
So I'm here to show you, to show you what life can be like,

I hold a box and in it there's a new world!
I hold a pearl forest and in it there's a long haired girl!
I'll take you there and she'll take care and introduce you to a wealthy earl,
Then you can forget about me and this journey because you deserve it girl.

It's a day in the life of you,
There is no point in feeling blue,
Don't tangle my words, "I love you",
It's a day in the life of you.

Well now you're there and you laugh and smile so gleefully,
There's an almost holy dancing in my soul,
But tears on my cheeks,
And life is tragic and cruel,
There's a fire in the willow tree,
Life is tragic and small because you forgot about me.

Well, Love Does Furnish a Life. song meanings

    General CommentSorry, I just put up the lyrics in the album sleeve, because I can't quite work out the Jamie T part.

    I will have another go. Or if someone else knows, that would be helpful and lovely!

    :)

    General Commenti think this is jamie t's part:

    "the young dear lover, she hit the ground
    Summer out here had to bring her down
    And in and out of here ...... ?? your town??
    Guess i'm allowed to be lost to really be found."

    idk that part of it haha :/
    great song! :) x

    General Comment"The young dear lover, she hit the ground,
    The summer out here had to bring her down
    And in and out of here, in your 'dirty old town',
    Guess someone had to be lost to really be found."

    General CommentEdward Larrikin said in an interview that he had seen a boy and girl crying when he was on a train and obviously didn't know why, so he made up a story where they went to a beautiful land and could not stay, hence why they cried.
