lyrics

Namaste?
Where’s the hole where you threw my heart away?
How evolved of you to smile and say,
"namaste."

Give me all the dreamcatchers and crystals in the world
covered in candle wax in the glow of rainbow light bulbs.
Give me all the starling feather earrings ever worn,
and burn it all. When did your headband become a blindfold?

You hated the wind.
I used to hold my coat out like wings and tell you to get in.
I remember your eyes were so green,
then for awhile they were yellow, and then they were red, finally.

Namaste?
I wanted so bad to see you, but why today?
Why would you shake my hand and file me away?
What’s it solve for you to smile and say,
"namaste"?

Give me all the dreamcatchers and crystals in the world
covered in candle wax in the glow of rainbow light bulbs.
Give me all the starling feather earrings ever worn,
and burn it all. When did your headband become a blindfold?

Was it all just a dream,
some kind of commercial trying to sell you what you don’t need?

Namaste?
Where’s the hole where you threw my heart away?
How evolved of you to smile and say,
"namaste."
