Song Meaning
Verse 1
Charades pop skill
Water hyacinth
Name by a poet
Imitation of life
Verse 2
Like a koi in a frozen pond
Like a goldfish in a bowl
I don't want to hear you cry
Verse 3
That sugar cane that tasted good
That cinnamon, that's Hollywood
Come on, come on
No-one can see you try
Verse 4
You want the greatest thing
The greatest thing since bread came sliced
You've got it all
You've got it sized
Verse 5
Like a Friday fashion show
Teenager cruising in the corner
Trying to look like you don't try
Verse 6
That sugar cane that tasted good
That cinnamon, that's Hollywood
Come on, come on
No-one can see you try
Verse 7
No-one can see you cry
Verse 8
That sugar cane that tasted good
That' freezing rain, that's what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry
Verse 9
This sugar cane, this lemonade
This hurricane, I'm not afraid
Come on, come on
No-one can see me cry
Verse 10
This lightning storm, this tidal wave
This avalanche, I'm not afraid
Come on, come on
No-one can see me cry
Verse 11
That sugar cane that tasted good
That's who you are, that's what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry
Verse 12
That sugar cane that tasted good
That's who you are, that's what you could
Come on, come on
No-one can see you cry
