They call her smokey taboo
I got your name tattooed
High like a helium balloon
Midnight to noon
I'm a desert child
And mountains make me nauseous
I like to look up wild at an infinite sky
Twinkling with diamonds
It's true I get depressed in fancy hotel rooms
Undressed with nothing to flaunt but my loneliness
Thinking of the night song of your hair
Premature as evening falls
It calls to me
Interrupted by the sirens in the street

Somedays you're like an anchor on my heart
They say that stolen water tastes sweet
More like rotten milk and rancid meat to me
I prefers when it is free
Like looking at the stars
Don't need no fancy cars
When we first
Our kisses sparked
Yeah I'm afraid of sharks
But not the dark

High like helium balloons
In an infinite sky
Twinkling with diamonds
When first our kisses sparked
Crystal heaven
This was crystal heaven...
Heaven...

    Lyric CorrectionThe correct lyrics to this song are:

    They call her smokey taboo
    I got your name tattooed
    High like a helium balloon
    Midnight to noon
    I'm a desert child
    And mountains make me nauseous
    I like to look up wild at an infinite sky
    Twinkling with diamonds
    It's true I get depressed in fancy hotel rooms
    Undressed with nothing to flaunt but my loneliness
    Thinking of the night song of your hair
    Premature as evening falls
    It calls to me
    Interrupted by the sirens in the street

    Somedays you're like an anchor on my heart
    They say that stolen water tastes sweet
    More like rotten milk and rancid meat to me
    I prefers when it is free
    Like looking at the stars
    Don't need no fancy cars
    When we first
    Our kisses sparked
    Yeah I'm afraid of sharks
    But not the dark

    General CommentI love how the meaning of this song is slowly revealed the more you listen to it. At first phrases like 'desert child' and getting depressed in a fancy, empty hotel room evoke certain feelings, and then you imagine yourself looking up at a starry, black sky and then you just sort of just. . get the whole song . . . even though the inner workings of Bianca's crazy-ass mind are still inaccessible. It's like reading e. e. cummings. And it pretty much rocks my face.

    General CommentShe sings:

    "Crystal heaven..."

    In the ending:

    "I like helium balloons
    In an infinate sky
    Twinkling with diamonds
    When first our kisses sparked
    This was crystal heaven...
    Heaven..."
