lyrics

Simple as syrup
Simple as syrup
Crystallizing and breaking
to pieces in my hands
Add a little heat and see what happens
if you add a little heat to the sweet, it will crystallize
and break apart in my hands

Take a number and jot it down
jot it out
you’re gonna find out
I’m a little bit more than a smile
Didn’t you hear, I thought that you heard,
there ain’t nobody still calls me Johanna
I left Johanna back in Cincinnati
with a worn out copy of “Blonde on Blonde”

Take me back to California where the girls are pretty and the boys are pretty
And the sun is pretty, but you don’t need a soul, so I fit in
And get me back to New York city where the streets are pretty cause the streets are gritty
And the sun in the sky sets the buildings on fire and I can’t win.
But I’ve always got hope once I get to the Coasts
cause I can always jump into the ocean
and go down …

I don’t know how to do this any other way
So you got the number. You had your luck, you called it up
Well now you’re fucked, cause it’ll break apart in my hands

Take me back to California where the girls are pretty and the boys are pretty
And the sun is pretty, but you don’t need a soul so I fit in
And get me back to New York city where the streets are pretty cause the streets are shitty
And the sun in the sky sets the buildings on fire and I can’t win.
But I always got hope once I get to the Coasts
I always got hope once I get to the coasts
yeah I always got hope once I get to the coasts
Cause I can drown.
Oh I always got hope once I get to the Coasts,
cause I can always jump into the ocean
and go down …
Simple as… the simplest. The simplest.
