"Amelia Bright" as written by and Darren Jessee....
here lies amelia bright
in a red 50's dress from a thrift shop nearby
i laid on my back and stared at the sky, with amelia bright

hey something it's new
it got into me, and i
hope that it got into you

but wait, like colors like paint, a trumpets been played, and i
hope that it's inside, hope that it got into you
and there's no doubt

here lies amelia bright
in a red 50's dress from a thrift shop nearby
i laid on my back and stared at the sky, with amelia bright

there's clothes that are put away
there's me, spread all over the floor
i'm lost in one place
i'm stuck and I'm straight, and i hope that you feel the same too
and there's no doubt

here lies amelia bright
in a red 50's dress from a thrift shop nearby
i laid on my back and stared at the sky, with amelia bright

there's no doubt, there's nothing to work out
you're alone, cause you're always on your own
but when you yawn, it makes me wanna yawn too

blank expressionless clue
what got into you, with a
necklace no shoes, a promise of truth
and a life to re-write and improve
and there's no doubt

here lies amelia bright, in a red 50's dress from a thrift shop nearby
i laid on my back and stared to the sky
with amelia bright
amelia bright
amelia bright

    General CommentHow is it possble that no one has commented on this song? Granted, I did like the live Ben Folds Five version better, but it's stunning. I don't know who Amelia Bright is, or why he wrote what seems to be to be a beautiful love song to a girl that possibly can't get her act together, but I'm glad he did. Seems like it's unrequited love, but he feels joy that he even gets to be her friend, regardless of the romantic outcome. In short, I adore this song. (P.S. Like I said, I enjoy Darren's rearrangement and changes to the lyrics, but check out the live Ben Folds Five version if you can find it.)
