Words| To the girl in the music video

I hope you’re selfish with your charm
I pray we never lose this
In four minutes, you changed my dreams
A different kind of wanting
For the girl in the music video

I know this screen stays between us
I know the moment is fleeting
I know the song is misleading
But I’ll play your solo on repeat
But I’ll live life four minute beats

To the girl in the music video
I can’t say all the things I need
Four minutes won’t be enough to plant a seed
Couldn’t you stay?
Couldn’t you find a way?

I’d rather not go
Out of this there’s no way to live
Away from my painted dream
Away from these counted scenes
I’ll stay

Does a nose piercing have a name?
I never thought them attractive
But it’s you … you
It’s you
The girl in the music video

I watched you run
I watched you move your arms
I watched you
I saw myself in the reflection in your eyes
It’s all truth

To the girl in the music video
Heaven is too much fun
I’d never lie to you
Misdeeds, never to be found
Directors beam, faces proud

Action
How many times did you rehearse that bit?
How many different moves each time I repeat?
The song plays on
A fragmented cycle races on

O what I’d do for a whiff of you
Scents borrowed from a memory
Smoke, shallow pain and cold thoughts
Winter, vodka and cloves
A fading ambience

Warmth
I travel monitoring the absence of heat
I march on in search of you
Never rising, never leaving you
Girl in the music video
