“Naomi”
Artist: Neutral Milk Hotel
Albums: On Avery Island (1996)


Your prettiness is seeping through
Out from the dress I took from you
So pretty
And my emptiness is swollen shut
Always a wretch I have become
So empty
And please, please don't leave me here

I'm watching Naomi, full bloom
I'm hoping she will soon
Explode into one billion tastes and tunes
One billion angels come and hold her down
They could hold her down until she cries

I'm tasting Naomi's perfume
It tastes like shit and I must say
She comes and goes most afternoons
One billion lovers wave and love her now
They could love her now and so could I

There is no Naomi in view
She walks through Cambridge stocks and strolls
And if she only really knew
One billion angels could come and save her soul
They could save her soul until she shines
Until she shines
Until she shines
Until she shines
Until she shines

So pretty
So pretty
So pretty
So pretty

Please, please don't leave me here
