"Bobby Gentry" as written by Ted Brett Barnes, Beth Orton and Ali Friend....
Blue and you lean on me, you know that your crushin' me
You're soaking and I cannot breathe
You're seedin' the clouds, you're buildin' a web 'cross the night
An unusual night meant for me

Collectin' dead rainbows from puddles and mires
Takin' them home to warm by the fire
This flower's in bloom, it'll never expire
It's just comin' 'round again

I'm tearin' my heart from the seams
I keep tearin' my heart on the seams

But I'll keep pushin' ya 'cause I know just where you're going
Yeah, I'll be pushin' ya till it's to far to get back home
Won't put my soul on strike 'cause at the speed of light
I can do what I like

Blue and you lean on me, you know that your crushin' me
You're soakin' but still I can breathe
You're seedin' the clouds, you're buildin' a web 'cross the night
Saved by unusual daydreamin' ways

I'm tearin' my heart from the seams
I keep tearin' my heart at the seams

But I'll keep pushin' ya 'cause I know just where you're goin'
Yeah, I'll be pushin' ya till it's to far to get back home
Won't put my soul on strike 'cause at the speed of light
I can do what I like

Yeah, I'll be lovin' ya like it's all I've ever known
Yeah, I'll be givin' ya till it's too far to get back home
I'll put my heart on strike 'cause at the speed of light
I can be out of sight

Yeah, I'll be lovin' ya like it's all I've ever known
Yeah I'll be lovin' ya till it's to far to get back home
Won't put my soul on strike 'cause at the speed of light
I can do what I like, yeah
