Your features defy all metaphor
And I'm the king of those
Your hair is too pretty to be compared to a city
so I'll leave it out of all my prose

And your eyes are unlike any ocean
that I have ever seen
Unlike any jewels
They break the writing rules
And I am trying to keep this song clean

And not to mention
despite pretension
You are infinitely interesting to me
It's so unexpected,
my heart feels unprotected
I'm so thankful for that way you look at me, me

And everything that you say is a poem
And I'm hooked on every word
Your mouth speaks no lies,
it needs no alibis
and not one single word is slurred

And I love that you talk about Dylan
And all the books you read
I know you so well, didn't notice any spell
But you seem to be taking the lead

And not to mention
despite pretension
You are infinitely interesting to me
It's so unexpected,
my heart feels unprotected
I'm so thankful for that way you look at me

    General Commentit's not 'everything you say is a poet' but 'everything you say is a poem'

    I THINK

    General Commentalso i think the end of line 4 is meant to be 'prose'.
    very sweet tune though, wonderful lyrics.

    Lyric CorrectionYour features defy all metaphor

    Your hair is too pretty to be compared to a city
