She made herself out of the blue,
Something she never used to do
She found herself involved with a crack in the wall of her bedroom

When her pocketwatch stopped she thought she'd turn the hands backwards
Visualize the speed of a light
and slip back into a vacuum

She lives alone on a private archipelago
With a palm tree and a seashell
Plays in the waves all day; she's scared of dying,
And she wants to keep it that way

She puts a boat out on the sea
With a little note for me
It says why the girls are so hungry

She says I am everything
She says that I am everything
She says that I am everything and she's nothing
She's nothing
She is nothing

Oh, oh, oh, please come home she says
I wanna be with you
Oh, oh I dont want to be alone
I said I want to be with you now
I, I am everything, you are nothing
I, I am everything, you are nothing

Oh baby, please come home, I don't want to be alone
I want to be with you now
I am everything, you are nothing.. nothing.
