Dearly beloved,
we gather here today
to introduce Ms. Heather to Mr. Grey

he's crushing harder than cars
on pop cans (?)
she's gonna save the world
with her new recycling program
she's taking apart the old heart
of the tin man
and dress the wounds in a scarf
that she's knitting

dearly beloved,
we gather today
to say it's winter
where I am
down here in Adelaide

she's calling Brooklyn home
and living life alone
but shooting it with her
camera phone
and sends them to a boy
who's growing jealous of her toys
he can't do that with his polaroid

she's calling Brooklyn home
so he's calling Brooklyn
she's calling Brooklyn home
he's calling Brooklyn...

Well, let's move up to
the upper east side
get into my cab
let's take a ride
there are things that
are meant to be had
like your lips,
and kissing
in the backseat
pronouncing it red

Heather knows what he needs
the tin man needs new jeans
it's winter where he's going
and where he's going it's green
with envy
she's taking pictures
that she's throwing through glass
the faster they fall
the harder they'll crash...

she's calling Brooklyn home
and living life alone
but shooting it with her
camera phone
and sends them to the boy
who's growing jealous of her toys
he can't do that with his polaroid

she's calling Brooklyn home
so he's calling Brooklyn
she's calling Brooklyn home
so he's calling Brooklyn

dearly beloved,
we gather today
to introduce Ms. Heather to Mr. Grey

It's winter
where i am...
down in Adelaide

    General Commentwhat a beautiful, beautiful song.

    the girl with the camera phone and the boy with the polaroid - perhaps a girl living in brooklyn who's in love with a boy who's not, so she takes pictures and sends them to him so he can feel like he's with her.

    'she's calling Brooklyn home
    so he's calling Brooklyn'

    she lives in brooklyn, and he calls her to talk to her.

    when jason mentions 'ms. heather' and 'mr. grey', then describes how it's winter in adelaide, i take 'heather' and 'gray' to be colors he's using to describe what it looks like where he's at. heather is kind of a gray-ish purpley color, and gray is obviously gray, which are colors the sky turns in winter when there's clouds in the air.

    but that's just my take on it. =]
    anyone got any other ideas?

    General Commenthow about....Jason just finds some similarity with New York and Australia (Brooklyn and Adelaide) both happens to be where he's passed by before? Or that he reluctantly leaves his girl in NY while he travels to Down Under...

    General CommentI agree with the posts above me.
    But I used to think that it was about his parents and how their relationship failed. I don't know why.
