Joanna Newsom - This Side Of The Blue Lyrics

  • Svetlana sucks lemons across from me,
  • and I am progressing abominably.
  • And I do not know my own way to the sea
  • but the saltiest sea knows its own way to me.
  • The city that turns, turns protracted and slow
  • and I find myself toeing th'embarcadero
  • and I find myself knowing the things that I knew
  • which is all that you can know on this side of the blue
  • And Jaime has eyes black and shiny as boots
  • and they march at you, two-by-two (re - loo - re - loo);
  • when she looks at you, you know she's nowhere near through:
  • it's the hardest heart beating this side of the blue.
  • And the signifieds butt heads with the signifiers,
  • and we all fall down slack-jawed to marvel at words!
  • While across the sky sheet the impossible birds,
  • in a steady, illiterate movement homewards.
  • And Gabriel stands beneath forest and moon.
  • See them rattle & boo, see them shake, see them loom.
  • See him fashion a cap from a page of Camus;
  • see him navigate deftly this side of the blue.
  • And the rest of our lives will the moments accrue
  • when the shape of their goneness will flare up anew.
  • hen we do what we have to do (re - loo - re -loo),
  • which is all you can do on this side of the blue.
