Sorry that we took so long
You probably thought we forgot your song
It makes us smile just so you know
To see your eyes at our shows

I wrote this song while I was drunk
I hope you don't mind that it was wine
But you called me and said you didn't want your friends to know
But what if you had to go?
What about then?
What about then Mildred?
Excuse me I mean music
What about then?

Sweet chariot of fire
Gon' swing us all the way
Sing us a song today, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)

Or maybe I'm in your car just driving away
And everything's okay

Float around where there's no need to walk
And there's nothing but thoughts and feeling no talk
Where there's golden bees and silver birds
And dreams are like shootin' come true and heard
And every moment feels like a spin Mildred
I mean, a spin music
So what about then?

Sweet chariot of fire
Gon' swing us all the way
Sing us a song today, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)

Or maybe I'm in your car just driving away
And everything's okay

Where every star flickers bright as sister
Just for the whisper commands your love
The bright sun in the sky all the flowers harmonize
And that's where your starry eyes will stand above

(Mildred, Mildred) Naw, fuck I mean Mildred
(Mildred, Mildred) How the fuck you gonna tell me it's Mildred
(Mildred, Mildred)(I'm sorry) not music (music)
Fuck it

Sweet chariot of fire
Gon' swing us all the way
Sing us a song today, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)
Away-ay, away-ay (zoom)

Or maybe I'm in your car just driving away
And everything's okay

I Love You
You mean the world to me

Just a minute ago
Just a minute ago
Just a minute ago
I said some things I know that I can't change that (sorry)
But when I just screamed
That didn't mean for us to break
Break our pact

I'm searching for my way back
But I'm looking through a peephole
I'm trying to find my way back
I wanna be the hero

I'm here, you're there
I'm here, you're there
I'm here, you're there
Between us there's air, but no one is breathing (fudge them)
How can this be?
It's your face I see
This is so crazy
We're in the same room

(I'm searching for my way back girl) I'm searching for my way back
(I'm searching for my way back girl)
(I'm searching for my way back girl) But I'm looking through a peephole
(I'm searching for my way back girl)
(I'm searching for my way back girl)I'm trying to find my way back
(I'm searching for my way back girl)
(I'm searching for my way back girl) I wanna be the hero
(I'm searching for my way back girl)

I love you, forever

Hey, I don't care what it takes but I know we got to get there
(Got to get there)
We got to get there
(Got to get there)
I can see it now, you and me
I know nothing'll change if the both of us just sat here
(If we just sat here)
If we just sat here
(If we just sat here)
Come on join me girl, can't you see?

(Hey)
I'm searching for my way back (I'm lost! Where am I?)
But I'm looking thru a peephole (I just wanna go home)
I'm trying to find my way back (I'm out here by myself)
I wanna be the hero (I'm lost in space)

I'm searching for my way back (no rocky road start)
But I'm looking through a peephole (I just wanna see you)
I'm trying to find my way back (hey, no rocky road start)
I wanna be the hero (I just wanna lead you)

I'm searching for my way back
(I love you babe, love you babe, love you babe)

    General CommentThis song is about a fan named Mildred. She was diagnosed with cancer, and Pharrell wrote the song for her as a tribute. He promised her he wouldn't say her name but slips between calling her "Mildred" and "Music". Since they wrote the song, her cancer has been in remission.
