Better Than Ezra – Under You lyrics

Along the edges, colors blur at seem familiar.
While you read your magazine,
I was counting all the markers.

And california seemed to draw you like a siren
From a postcard, or a letter, in a frame of film melting.

But under you, I hear your breath move in, out slowly.
Under you, let go completely feeling you take over me.

A hollywood flat where we'd laugh about our fortunes
Well we held jobs in this bar down at 3rd and san vicente.
And ramen noodles at 4: 30 in the morning,
When we barely could survive, I was never more alive.

Under you, I feel your blood flowing out slowly.
Under you, let go completely feeling you take over me

You moved in slow degrees
A sudden memory
You're a leonard cohen song

But every now and then I'd swear I see you standing on a sidewalk, in a
Restaurant, from a taxi cab passing.

Under you I feel you moving in/out slowly
Under you let go completely feeling you take over me.

Take over me

So long, alison foley
So long, bye-bye
