Dear Jean

Album: Not Waving, But Drowning (2019)
  • I think we got sixteen before, easily

    Dear Jean
    Oh, I hope this doesn't come as a surprise, ha
    Oh, but I've fallen for a woman from the skies
    Oh, and she be truer than the lies
    Truer than the prize
    And you can see it when you look into her eyes
    Deep blue like the flicker of the flame 'fore it dies
    But this ain't dying, it's rising

    Oh, like the big round orange on horizon
    Oh, I know it means I'm not about as much
    Oh, but listen, I ain't moving out as such
    Just moving half my clothes, maybe louder stuff
    Out the south, out the house, never out of touch
    Trust, I don't think I said it loud enough
    I'm out the south, out the house, never out of touch

    Trust, out of sight never out of mind
    Oh, out the light, never out of line
    Trust, another night running out of time
    Let it shine like we're living in a pantomime
    She's not behind me or behind you
    But beside we and beside two
    But behind these little lines true
    That I scribble in a book, think she idolizes you

    So one night I'll be saying, "I do"
    To a girl that can read my mind, too
    With little Ryan sat in a white suit
    With my own baby Jean sat to his right too
    I had a dream and it came true
    Oh, and I can only blame you
    Shit, I can only blame you
    Oh, I guess you came through Writer/s: Benjamin Coyle-Larner, Jordan Rakei
