Emmy The Great – Phoenixes lyrics
[Verse 1]
The phoenixes headed west
Cross country nebraska, nevada
The phoenix has to leave its nest but

Change is good for some
It is not good for others

[Verse 2]
First there were five, then there four
Leaf, he changed his colours, that's for sure
River was your favourite
His eyes were aqua
He's in our history now
Like Cleopatra
And you...

[Pre-Chorus]
My screen grab beauty queen
Typing something out in green

[Chorus]
Like we were seventeen...

[Verse 3]
When we first met we read bliss
Soon we were too old for this
We though that weight loss was survival
We thought that vogue was french for bible
Up on the wall
We put them all
Leaf, he changed his colours, that's for sure
River was your favourite
His eyes were aqua
He's in our history now
Like Cleopatra
And you...

[Pre-Chorus]
My screen grab beauty queen
Typing something on the screen

[Chorus]
Like we were seventeen...
River, rain, summer, leaf and liberty...

[Pre-Chorus]
And you
My screen grab beauty queen
Are you working out your next life dream?

[Chorus]
Like we were seventeen...
