From Eden Lyrics

Babe
There's something tragic about you
Something so magic about you
Don't you agree?

Babe
There's something lonesome about you
Something so wholesome about you
Get closer to me

No tired sighs, no rolling eyes, no irony
No 'who cares', no vacant stares, no time for me

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door Babe, there's something wretched about this
Something so precious about this
Oh what a sin

To the strand a picnic plan for you and me
A rope in hand for your other man to hang from a tree

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Honey, you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on its sword
Innocence died screaming, honey, ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to hide outside your door

Thoughts & Meanings

This song is about a man who identities as the devil who is not worthy of an innocent good woman. Despite this he still wants to be close to her even though he can never get close to her. He understands that his feelings are not rational but he is addicted to her and can't resist her just like eve couldn't resist the forbidden fruit. It sounds like a tale of forbidden love ❤

A love song written from the point of view of the Devil as he professes his obsessive love for with a woman (Eve?) he knows is too good for him. He finds her innocence and simplicity enchanting, maybe because he sees something in her that he lost long ago when he fell from grace.

"and that's when you know you've found someone special, when you can just sit there and enjoy the silence with" -Pulp Fiction.
