City Plant life Liedtext

I saw a ghost on the stairs

And sheets on the tables and chairs

The silverware swam

With the sharks in the sink

Even so, I don’t know what to think

I’ve been longing for

Daisies to push through the floor

And I wish plant life

Would grow all around me

So I won’t feel dead anymore

So I won’t feel dead anymore

I saw a bear in the den

Readin‘ my textbooks again

Bats float like traffic

As they pour from the attic

Heaven knows I could really use a friend

(Chorus)

I’d rather waltz

Than just walk through the forest

The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time

Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus

If I were to pluck on your heartstrings

Would you strum on mine?

I’ve been longing for

(I’ve been longing for)

Daisies to push through the floor

(I never really felt like this before)

And I wish plant life

Would grow all around me

So I won’t feel dead anymore

So I won’t feel dead anymore

Your spirit is sweet

So pull off your sheet

And give me a ghost of a smile

Show me your teeth

Cuz you’re a teddy beneath

So just grin and bear it awhile

Just grin and bear it awhile

(Chorus)

(I thought that was all about lovin‘ and all)

(New leaf turns over, I’m willing to fall)

Tonight I’m bustin‘ out

Of this old haunted house

Cuz I’m sick of waiting for

All those spider webs to grow all around me

Cuz I don’t feel dead anymore

And I’m not afraid anymore

(Chorus)

If I were to pluck on your heartstrings

Would you strum on mine?
