dandelion lyrics – kelis

saw her on a friday outside someones dance saloon
she was crying over someone that she felt love much too soon
i said: “hey girl don’t you cry tonight, let me take you out on this town”
she looked at me and smiled as one last tear splashed of the ground
with half a wink she asked me “what are you some kind of creep?”
i told her “no i guess i just feel your vibe is kinda deep”
the moon hung over soho and i counted 16 stars
i pointed at the brightest one and said “now that one’s ours”

she’s a dandelion up on her hill, above the sea
she’s not exactly everythin i thought that she might be
she’s a dandelion, she looks like everythin i need
i thought she was a flower but i found out she’s a weed
and i hold on hold on hold on, hold on hold on hold on

i just might be poison but he took me to his roof top
he said “are you affraid of hights?” i said “no i am not”
he said “hey girl don’t you lie to me, tell me everythin you feel”
we danced around in circles, he said “i think we felt somethin real”

she’s a dandelion up on her cliff, above the sea
she’s not exactly everythin i thought that she might be
she’s a dandelion, she looks like everythin i need
i thought she was a flower but i found out she’s a weed
and i hold on hold on hold on, and i hold on hold on hold on

down in union square i saw her walking all alone
i walked a little slower just so i remain unknown
she met someone on 17 think she knew him all to well
my little piece of heaven has a secret she won’t tell
without the smile she took his hand and then they walked away
i realised i wouldn’t see my girl after today
i fell in love with a dandelion and she’s all i ever had
at first she looked so sweet but in the end she tastes so bad

she’s a dandelion up on her cliff, above the sea
she’s not exactly everythin i thought that she might be
she’s a dandelion, she looks like everythin i need
i thought she was a flower but i found out she’s a weed
and i hold on hold on hold on, and i hold on hold on hold on
and i tell myself hold on hold on hold on, and hold on hold on hold on

she’s a dandelion up on her cliff, above the sea
she’s not exactly everythin i thought that she might be
she’s a dandelion, she looks like everythin i need
i thought she was a flower but i found out she’s a weed
