Roof comes down
and you leave me with nothing, I
I will shed no tear (will shed no tear)
Earth gives way
you leave me hanging, I
I will shed no tear (will shed no tear)

Baby, the feeling will bloom
with or without you
and the core, it will turn
with or without you

And I will carry on
I will carry on
with grace
Zero tears on my face (zero tears on my face)

    General CommentI don't know how Perfume Genius can pack such emotional power and meaning into songs that are so short!

    These lyrics are pretty wrong though. This is what I hear:

    Roof comes down
    and you leave me with nothing, I
    I will shed no tear (will shed no tear)
    Earth gives way
    you leave me hanging, I
    I will shed no tear (will shed no tear)

    Baby, the feeling will bloom -- (I'm not completely sure about "feeling")
    with or without you
    and the core, it will turn
    with or without you

    And I will carry on
    I will carry on
    with grace
    Zero tears on my face (zero tears on my face)
