lyrics

MY FICTIONAL FRIEND FROM NORWAY

you grew up in a world that was
filled with trees
n cemeteries
n friends were few and far between
n far between
but the girls were very pretty in a brand
in a brand new way
n a spark was lit that never went
would never ever go away
n yr mom was something
n so was yr dad

saturday nights wr weird when the drinking got bad
n you got sad
but now yr over all that
more r less yd say
n yr life is grand
n ya look like a elf today
in a story i read on a subway train
yr my fictional friend from norway
a beautiful boy laughing in the rain
yeah

well ya paint like a child
n ya think like a grown up, yeah
n ya feel like a woman
n yr smile breaks thru Everything
like a cyclone like a bell
n ya ask the hard questions
n yr always horny, yeah
n ya miss Everybody
n yr true t the ones
the ones ya love
the ones ya love

n the kids in the summer camp
say that they like you they like you, they do
ya got hair like gold
n yr eyebrows in a knot
in a vacant lot
throwin’ rocks at a secret spot
ya got a song in yr head
a painted bird in yr bed
a forest of roses
n moss all over yr arms
like i said
ya live forever in my head
(n in my heart
n in my heart)

emerald eyes
n pearl white skin
in a homeless hat
that ya fit right in
where are you now
hey what should i do
is there a trick or a clue
i am so lucky to invent
you

first i saw yr hair n then i saw yr ala-bastard skin
yr eyes locked me onto your soul like a angel
living in sin
let the right one in
i can carry you around in my coat like a kitten
all worked up
askin’ more than i can ever give out
r simply give up
like a little red truck

you like t sleep but ya work real hard
n yr honest like a con man
like a dog
n ya never say goodbye w a tear in yr eye
but ya feel me don’t ya boy
like a tin can noisy on the sidewalk kickin’ the dust up
like the truth
n ya sing it like a song in a treehouse
hammered w yr best friend
naked
on the roof
on the roof

emerald eyes
n pearl white skin
in a homeless hat
that ya fit right in
