"47" as written by Jeremy Enigk, William Goldsmith, Dan Hoerner and Nate Mendal....
Swallow whole
Lose myself in you
Take a chance
Take a chance with me

Poured out in wine
Chance to run away
Take a breath
Take a breath
Same sign

Hair of gold swims through
Caught in my mind
Painted picture prize
Jewels on a crown
Poisened wine
I fall to the floor
Caught a glimpse of truth

Swallow whole
Lose myself in you
Take a breath
Take a breath
Same sign

Hair of gold swims through
Caught in my mind
Painted picture prize
Jewels on a crown
Poisened wine
I fall to the floor
Caught a glimpse of truth

Hair of gold
Hair of gold

    General CommentThe imagery in this song is beautiful.
    And I would guess you're right about thinking that she's too good for him, because every description is glorified to make her seem like... royalty.
