"Lucette Stranded On The Island" as written by and Julia Holter....
I call my name aloud
Looking for what I remember
My name I know
I love going to the movies

I turn and see my childhood home
On this new beach where strange bird fly
These birds swoop right over
Looking out for me

"Who is she?"
"Where does she come from?"
The birds sang so loud

"Oh she's been marooned, oh
Can anybody help her?"

"Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?" (oh)

"Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?"

The sun comes up
Slower than I remember
A man I know
He lights his cigarette with nothing
Not a smile or memory
His shadow still wet as my gash against the the rock
Sharp and high on the Balearic promontory
I see his ship go
What stings me?
These birds can't stop the waves

"Oh she's been marooned, oh
Can anybody help her?" (oh)

"Oh she's been marooned (oh)
Can anybody help her?" (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

The birds can sing a song
"He covered me in cactus"
The birds can sing a song
"I don't remember much but"
The birds can sing a song
"He turned me around"
The birds can sing a song
"My mouth quivered"
The birds can sing a song
"It's 4 am"
The birds can sing a song
"The man is gone"
The birds can sing a song
"The man is gone"
The birds can sing a song
"Good riddance, he is gone"
"His billhook caught their eyes"
"Blood is on his billhook"
"His billhook caught my neck"
"How unnaturally I gaze"
"How unnaturally I gaze"
"I gaze at nothing"
"I gaze at nothing"
"My emerald is gone"
"He lifts my hand"
"He lifts my hand"
"I hear him"
"I hear him"

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
I don't know much but

"Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?"
