swans lyrics – camera obscura


there’s flowers in my house
and i bought them myself
no surprises in the record collection
you must have thought i was someone else

i’m still afraid to get lost
in a city i might explore
but i’m not afraid to have
an eloquent boy at my door

at my door
at my door
at my door

oh you want to be a writer
fantastic idea
you say you’ve never seen america
i really think you’ll like it there

maybe you should travel with me
is this the best idea
because you’ve never seen a redwood
and you’ve never touched a deer

a deer
a deer

a deer
a deer
my dear

are swans deceiving us all?
oh i for one should know
i never felt myself so graceful
and i never swam so slow

so slow
so slow
so slow…
