Annie Van Doran - The Amelia Song lyrics

amelia planted flowers

pants grew brown now fifty hours

nothing's bloomed she's hating seeds

chasing after tumbleweeds

seventeen had lost its meaning

eyes grew wide but truth's receding

watering your last resort

solace in a metaphor

whatcha gonna do when the sun goes down?

you'll never grown up if it never goes down

where ya gonna be with a smile on your face?

if you take it slow you can win the race

amelia found her truth

in green boxes, twenty new

turning to dust one by one

another ready, just begun

backs and heels are all she sees

turned the saying into feet

perverse jokes and references

nothing's better left unsaid

morning dawns extended nights

careful now, obstructed sights

fifty more will blow right through

brown of brown never looked so blue
