lyrics

Had the gold rings on my fingers
Had the bells on, the swing, the flow
All my cells on
I was another world waving

Hello to you, every blue moon
Every red moon like a drive-in sign
Hello to you
I was another world waving
hello but, oh

You're cold as a bone
No stereo on
Canary I wonder why you
Say you do when you don't
It makes me blue
I didn't know you were so yellow
I didn't know about you

But I'm not mad at you, baby
It isn't your fault where the ripples fade
It isn't my fault
You are another world burning
pretty but, oh

You said we were friends but it wasn't to be
I was breaking my heartbeat for free
Couldn't wake up again with my head on your knee
So now I'm up in my own tree
Now I'm up in my tree

Up here in the thin air
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
The branches bend

You are another world, baby
I'm gonna miss you but oh,
You're cold as a bone
No stereo on
Canary I wonder I do
But the branches are bending
The branches are bending

You're cold as a bone
No stereo on
Canary I wonder why you
Say you do when you don't
It makes me blue
I didn't know you were so yellow
Now I know about you
