A cloud hangs over,
This city by the sea,
I watch the ships pass and wonder if she might be, (might be)
Out there and sober as well from loneliness,
Please do persist girl it's time we met and made a mess

I picture your face in the back of my eyes,
A fire in the attic, a proof of the prize,
Anna-molly, anna-molly, anna-molly

A cloud hangs over,
And mutes my happiness,
A thousand ships couldn't sail me back from distress,
Wish you were here,
I'm a wounded satellite,
I need you now put me back together make me right

I picture your face in the back of my eyes,
A fire in the attic, proof of the prize,
Anna molly, anna molly, anna molly,
I'm calling your name,
Up into the air,
Not one of the others could ever compare,
Anna-molly, anna-molly,

Wait there is a light,
There is a fire illuminated attic,
Fate or something better I couldn't care less,
Just stay with me a while,
Wait there is a light, there is a fire,
Defragmenting the attic,
Fate or something better I could care less,
Just stay with me a while

I picture your face in the back of my eyes,
A fire in the attic a proof of the prize,
Anna molly, anna molly, anna molly,
I'm Calling your name,
Up into the air,
Not one of the others could ever compare,
Anna molly, anna molly,

Wait there is a light there is a fire
Defragmenting the attic,
Fate or something better I could care less,
Just stay with me a while

    I think the "attic" is his brain/mind, and anna-molly is a girl he desires. Maybe not even a real girl, but an idea of a girl he wants and can see and wants to meet.
