​My Body

This song is by A Love Like Pi and appears on the album The Atlas And The Oyster (2009).

I can barely wait to see your face
Crack its weary mouth
And let the words float into space
I have learned the Mississippi's pain
Every path I take ends up the same

My body isn't quite a symphony
But if you would put your ears close to me
You'd find that in this dark room at night, oh
But in this dark room
Oh, my eyelashes are cymbal crashes

I can barely wait to leave this room
My nervous heart plays pits ocado
Parts inside the tomb
And every empty note will seem to sling
Itself against the walls and make them sing

Oh, do, do, do, do, do, do
Try to catch the truth and broken cells
Oh, do, do, do, do, do, do
Try to catch the truth and you will fail

My body isn't quite a symphony
But if you would put your ears close to me
You'd find that in this dark room at night, oh
Well, in this dark room
Oh, my eyelashes are cymbal crashes

My body isn't quite a symphony
But if you would put your ears close to me
You'd find that in this dark room at night, oh
Well in this dark room
Oh, my eyelashes are cymbal crashes

You can't hear me now
You can't hear me now
You can't hear me now

Do, do, do, do, do, do
You can't hear me now
Do, do, do, do, do, do
You can't hear me now

Do, do, do, do, do, do
(My body isn't quite)
You can't hear me now
Do, do, do, do, do, do
(But if you would put your ears)
You can't hear me now

Do, do, do, do, do, do
(You'd find in this dark room at night)
(Well, in this dark room
Oh, my eyelashes)
You can't hear me now

Do, do, do, do, do, do
(Are cymbal crashes)
You can't hear me now
