You're an empty promise
You're an easy chair
You're the gods forces
Struck down somewhere

You're a secret noticed
You're a mystery sky
You're a wish floated
Up to the night

Medellia of my eyes
You're the emptiness of I
You're the reason that I write
And if you say you will
I would love you still

And if I could
I'd throw away this world
I'd dress you all in pearls
I'd give you what you wanted

You're all I notice
In a crowded room
Your vacant notice
unmoved, revealed

Medellia of my eyes
You're the emptiness of I
You're the reason that I drive
And if you say you will
I would love you still

And if I just could
Be anything for you
Just anyone at all
Anything that mattered, washed out

You're the silly reasons
In a goldfish laugh
You're the ageless seasons
At rest, at last

    General CommentSang this whole song in a drunken depression to my best friend after a breakup - he used to call me Medellia, when he loved me.

    General CommentExcellent song. I read that it was written as a companion piece to Porcelina of the Vast Oceans (hence the title similarity) but didn't make the album cut, even though Billy Corgan said it "turned out much more beautiful than I ever dreamed possible."

    General CommentI think that once again Billy is personifying a concept. Such a beautiful song.

    General CommentSo...I've been searching forever for the meaning of the word "medellia" and haven't been able to find anything. I never thought of it as being a girl's name, as it seems some have, so I was always curious. Anyway, I found a similar word that Billy may have adapted "medellia" from. "Medulla" means "the inner core of certain organs or structures". I thought that maybe the inner core is the subject of the song, and the organ is his heart. Just throwing it out there.
