Discoverer

Album: Collapse Into Now (2011)
  • Hey baby!
    This is not a challenge, just means that I love you as much as I always said I did
    I was wrong
    I have been laughable, wrong
    Sand-paper, paper-mache, chalk, hung out wet.

    Oh the city! We all scan now, na, na, na, na, na, na.
    Well I didn't have to be afraid, I didn't have to be so stupid.
    I can see myself.
    I can feel

    With just the slightest bit of finesse
    I might have made a little less mess
    But it was what it was
    Lets all get on with it
    Now!

    Discoverer!
    Discoverer!
    Discoverer!
    Discoverer!
    Laughing
    Discoverer!

    From the cross Houston where I am
    I see the city rise up tall
    The opportunities
    The possibilities
    I have never felt so called

    Remember the vodka-espresso night of discovery?
    Remember that
    Laughing
    Discovery
    Oh how I look back and reflect
    How I felt it
    I was sick
    I don't have to feel so wrong
    Now I wake up dreaming saffron, turmeric and brass

    With just the slightest bit of finesse
    I might have made a little less mess
    But it was what it was
    Let's all get on with it
    Now!

    With just the slightest bit of finesse
    I might have made a little less mess
    But it was what it was
    Lets all get on with it
    Now!

    Discoverer!
    Discoverer!
    Discoverer!
    Discoverer!
    Discoverer!
