Julia Holter - Lucette Stranded on the Island

[Verse 1]
I call my name
Aloud
Looking for what I remember
My name I know
I love going to the movies

[Verse 2]
I turn and see my childhood home
On this new beach
Where strange birds fly
These birds swoop right over
Looking out for me

[Pre-Chorus]
“Who is she?”
“Where does she come from?”
The building disappears

[Chorus]
“Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?”
“Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?”
“Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?”
[Verse 3]
The sun comes up
Slower than I remember
A man I know
He lights his cigarette with nothing
Not a smile or memory
His shadow still wet as my gash against the rock
Sharp and high on the Balearic promontory

[Pre-Chorus]
I see his ship go
What stings me?
These birds can't stop the waves

[Chorus]
“Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?”
“Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?”

[Bridge]
The birds can sing a song
He covered me in cactus
The birds can sing a song
I don't remember much but
The birds can sing a song
Good riddance he is gone
The birds can sing a song
He put me ashore
The birds can sing a song
At 4 am
The birds can sing a song
The man is gone
The birds can sing a song
The man is gone
The birds can sing a song
Good riddance he is gone
The birds can sing a song
His billhook caught their eyes
The birds can sing a song
Blood is on his billhook
The birds can sing a song
His billhook caught my neck
The birds can sing a song
How unnaturally I gaze
The birds can sing a song
How unnaturally I gaze
The birds can sing a song
I don't remember much but
The birds can sing a song
He turned me around
The birds can sing a song
My mouth quivered
The birds can sing a song
Perpetually alarmed
The birds can sing a song
I gaze at nothing
The birds can sing a song
I gaze at nothing
The birds can sing a song
My emerald is gone
The birds can sing a song
He lifts my hand
The birds can sing a song
He lifts my hand
The birds can sing a song
I hear him
The birds can sing a song
I hear him
[Outro]
I don't remember much but
“Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?”
