  • A cloud hangs over
    This city by the sea
    I watch the ships pass and wonder if she might be
    Out there and sober, as a well for loneliness
    Please do persist girl, it's time we met and made a mess

    I picture your face in the back of my eyes
    A fire in the attic, a proof of the prize
    Anna Molly, Anna Molly, Anna Molly
    Doo, doo, doo, doo, do

    A cloud hangs over
    And mutes my happiness
    A thousand ships couldn't sail me back from distress
    Wish you were here
    I'm a wounded satellite
    I need you now, put me back together, make me right

    I picture your face in the back of my eyes
    A fire in the attic, a proof of the prize
    Anna Molly, Anna Molly, Anna Molly
    I'll call out your name
    Up into the air
    Not one of the others could ever compare
    Anna Molly, Anna Molly

    Wait, there is a light
    There is a fire, illuminated attic
    Fate or something better, I could care less
    Just stay with me a while
    Wait, there is a light, there is a fire de-fragmenting the attic
    Fate or something better, I could care less
    Just stay with me a while

    I picture your face in the back of my eyes
    A fire in the attic, a proof of the prize
    Anna Molly, Anna Molly, Anna Molly
    I'll call out your name Up into the air
    Not one of the others Could ever compare
    Anna Molly, Anna Molly
    Anna Molly (wait, there is a light, there is a fire de-fragmenting the attic)
    Anna Molly (fate or something better, I could care less, just stay with me a while)

    Doo, doo, doo, doo, do, do Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER KILMORE, KENNEY BENJAMIN, MICHAEL EINZIGER, BRANDON BOYD, JOSE PASILLAS
