lyrics

Cantaloupe

on the first day he fed you a star
a glowing mirror inside of a spoon
a tiny sun dancing like a raw egg
reflections of you soft and blue girl

we're pulsing blue blue to orange
dripping fire music down yr back
floating up thru yr skin
white gardenias in yr eyes

on the second day we drew streaks
of lightning on yr tele
fingers drip dipped in paint
of cantaloupe and licorice

we're pulsing blue blue to orange
dripping fire music down yr back
floating up thru yr skin
white gardenias in yr eyes

on the third day you came back
silver lace around yr neck
ankles wrists and around yr hips
reflections of you soft and blue girl

we're pulsing blue blue to orange
dripping fire music down yr back
we're floating up out of yr skin
white gardenias in yr eyes

--Thurston Moore, London
