Song Meaning
Verse 1
Charades, pop skill
Water hyacinth, named by a poet
Imitation of life.
Like a koi in a frozen pond.
Like a goldfish in a bowl.
I don't want to hear you cry.
Verse 2
That's sugarcane that tasted good.
That's cinnamon, that's Hollywood.
See'mon, see'mon no one can see you try.
Verse 3
You want the greatest thing
The greatest thing since bread came sliced.
You've got it all, you've got it sized.
Like a Friday fashion show teenager
Freezing in the corner
Trying to look like you don't try.
Verse 4
That's sugarcane that tasted good.
That's cinnamon, that's Hollywood.
See'mon, see'mon no one can see you try.
Verse 5
No one can see you cry.
That sugar cane that tasted good.
That freezing rain, that's what you could.
See'mon, see'mon on no one can see you cry.
Verse 6
This sugarcane
This lemonade
This hurricane, I'm not afraid.
See'mon, see'mon no one can see you cry.
Verse 7
This lightning storm
This tidal wave
This avalanche, I'm not afraid.
See'mon, see'mon no one can see me cry.
Verse 8
That sugar cane that tasted good.
That's who you are, that's what you could.
See'mon, see'mon on no one can see you cry.
Verse 9
That sugar cane that tasted good.
That's who you are, that's what you could.
See'mon, see'mon on no one can see you cry.
