If you're uncomfortable with silence
Let me shower you with these silly violets
You can listen to the petals
As they spin down to settle on your skin oh

I'll settle on your skin oh
I'll settle on your skin oh
I'll settle on your skin oh

But my voice is tired
And my voice is rough
My arms are tired
And my aim is off

It's the kind of day
Where lovers stay home

I know you know the pain
I know you know the pain
Of entering your name into the lottery again and again

No no
I know I know

I'll settle on your skin oh
I'll settle on your skin oh
I'll settle for your skin oh

I'll settle on your skin oh
I'll settle on your skin oh
I'll settle on your skin oh
I'll settle on your skin oh


My voice is tired
And my voice is rough
My arms are tired
And my aim is off
So get ready

I am the ice
And I am a volcano
Que sera sera
I am the bow and I am the arrow

    General CommentA good one off the new album. I'm definitely drawing sexual themes in these lyrics.

    General Commentto me it sounds like:

    'and I own a volcano' instead of 'and I am a volcano'
    and
    'I own the bow' instead of 'I am the bow'

    could be wrong, but that's what I hear!
