Landlady Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Roam, the phone is where I live 'til I get home
And when the doorbell rings you tell me that I have a key
I ask you, how you know it's me
Verse 2
The road, no road without a turn and if there was
The road would be too long
What keeps us standing in this view
Is the view that we can be brand new
Verse 3
The landlady takes me up in the air
I go, I go where I would not dare
The landlady shows me the stars up there
I'm weightless, weightless when she is there
And I'll never know, never know what starving poets meant
'Cause when I was broke, it was you that always paid the rent
Verse 4
Space, her place is where I found my parking space
And when I'm losing ground, you know she gives it back to me
She whispers "don't do, just be"
Verse 5
The landlady takes me up in the air
I go, I go where I would not dare
The landlady shows me the stars up there
I'm weightless, weightless when she is there
And I'll never know, never know what starving poets meant
'Cause when I was broke, it was you that always paid the rent
Verse 6
Every wave that broke me
Every song that wrote me
Every dawn that woke me
Was to get me home to you, see
Verse 7
Every soul that left me
Every heart that kept me
The strangers that protected me
To bring me back to you
Verse 8
Every magic potion
Every false emotion
How unswerving our devotion
To the lies we know are almost true
Verse 9
Every sweet confusion
Every grand illusion
I will win and call it losing
If the prize is not for you
