Where is the one
Who will mourn me when I'm gone
Who will pour water on my bed of dirt
Who will breathe fire on my neck at night
I heard someone say
There's a chance that I will meet her
I could be perse-
phone and she demeter
To pull me from the underground that I call home
Her name is no one...
She blinds me with her eyes 'cause she's
The one, the one
She lives somewhere not here...
My lovers are as smooth
As a politician's tongue
The more I look for goodness
The more that I find none
I heard someone say,
That she's honest and good...
Her name is no one no one no one...
I measure out my days
With sips of a Corona
I'm pretty sure she drives
An old fucked up Corolla
To pull me from the underground
That I call home
I've a funny feeling
There's no chance that I will meet her
so I'll measure out my nights
To my metronome's meter
This song is from the album Roses are Red, Violets are Blue.
Using 'persephone and demeter' as a rock song lyric is unforgivable; somehow, the band forgave Nico. Brandon's slinky bossa nova and Wendy's Casiotone vibe sound save this one... this tune appears in Ep20 of RvB. That's right, Blue Command digs us!
Nico Audy-Rowland: Danelectro baritone guitar, Vocals
