Purple and Yellow

lyrics

I’ll tell of a boy who carries an arrow
he flies around with little wings
he thinks of himself as some kind of sparrow
stalking victims just like me

a god of the slaves, a god of the pharos
he brought them both down to their knees
his aim is quick, his focus is narrow
yeah this morning he shot me in the spleen

well, hello!
I am lost in this world where things glow
with the touch of you love and I’m not letting go
I’m in love and I’m not letting go

I'll tell of a girl who’s purple and yellow
she lurks beneath the morning wind
she dances around she plays on a cello!
yeah she twirls her bow between her strings

well, hello!
I am lost in this world where things glow
with the touch of you love and I’m not letting go
I’m in love and I’m not letting go

inside of this box I carry my heart
I give it to you so you’ll break it apart
to pluck out its feathers, rub on a fish
to glue back together however you wish
when I get it back I know it’ll be
the best iteration of me

I’ll wrestle a bear, I’ll shovel some snow
I’ll save all the whales and I’ll learn how to sow
‘cause I know this world is waiting to see
the best iteration of me

I’m in love and I’m not letting go
I found love and I’m not letting go
