be mine, world
and I will lift you up
be lovely
or I'll have had enough

let me be
all you might contain
'cause I never know
if I get to be again

I wanna see Venice before it sinks in the sea
'cause I miss New Orleans
I watched it go under on my TV
and what with the siren song we all call entropy
I wanna be everything before it is gone from me

fall lightly
deep into my bed
late evening
sweet breath against my neck
the only light here
is the television's blue
and the quiet
closes in on me and you

and I wanna break my heart while it's still young enough to recover
and I wanna grab your ears to kiss the hell out of each other
and I wanna board a train across the world and see it while I can
I wanna know what it's like to be every woman, child, and man

be kindly
like you've never spent a day
deep in mourning, anger, or dismay

be forgiving
be gracious
be polite
be childish, outlandish, and uptight

be extensive
be anything at all
keep beside you all the things you are

I wanna see Venice before it sinks in the sea
'cause I miss New Orleans
I watched it go under on my TV
and what with the siren song we all call entropy
I wanna be everything before it is gone from me

be mine, world
and I will lift you up
be lovely
or I'll have had enough.
