chinaberry tree lyrics – mew

in parallel sea what would i be?
my first love said to me:
“tears out for the world to see”
i would not be
i did not see the chinaberry tree
tears out, it would feel so
heavenly, heavenly, heavenly
hard now to picture a me
without a you

don’t interfere
part of her back was frozen
for the remainder of the war
don’t be concerned
but i never learned how not to be
as my first love said to me:
“i don’t care, i’m not there”
so that i could not sleep
my whole being was falling apart
so that i soon cried out:
“dear friends, hold me!”
