Camera Obscura — Swans lyrics

There's flowers in my house
And I bought them myself
No surprises in the record collection
You must have thought I was someone else

I'm still afraid to get lost
In a city I might explore
But I'm not afraid to have
An éloquent boy at my door

At my door
At my door
At my door

Oh you want to be a writer
Fantastic idea
You say you've never seen America
I really think you'd like it there

Maybe you should travel with me
Is this the best idea?
Because you've never seen a redwood
And you've never seen a deer

A deer
A deer

A deer
A deer
My dear

Are swans deceiving us all?
Oh I for one should know
I never felt myself so graceful
And I never swam so slow

So slow
So slow
So slow...
