lyrics

Month to month, lease on memories
Live along, along the sea
We were reaching for the silhouettes
Only you could be my aquarelle

But if I was a country man
And if I was a country man
I’ll live a long and happy life
I’ll live a long and happy life

Said what I mean but never to you
I’m a mystic machine, I will never need proof
My mind is read with the reds but I still feel the blues
And if you’re going nowhere, I hope I come too
Little tests like the rain have colored me lots
You can peer through my skull and paint Basquiat
I’ve got fields of paint, I like Rothko too, I like Rothko too

But even if it’s only art
We’ll take heart
I’ll live a long and happy life
I’ll live a long and happy life

Elise, you’re on, you wouldn’t have of me
Myopia, but you can’t see
So I’m reaching with some empty hands
My fields are all I have of this

But if I was a country man
And if I was a country man
I’ll live a long and happy life
I’ll live a long and happy life

In front of the sink, vitriol in the room
You will never know me but you watch what I do
Seems that if I cross, I’m a stranger to you
You are two floors down from a new living room
We were just little dreams, microcosms to stop
You had more things to say but I guess you forgot
I’m a mystic machine, I will never need proof
I’ve got fields of paint, I like Rothko too, I like Rothko too

But even if it’s only art
We'll take heart
I’ll live a long and happy life
I’ll live a long and happy life
