Cover of Joanna Newsom's "Peach Plum Pear"


We speak in the store, I'm a sensitive bore
You seem markedly more and I'm oozing surprise

But it's late in the day and you're well on your way
What was golden went gray and I'm suddenly shy

And the gathering floozies afford to be choosy
And all sneezing darkly in the dimming divide

And I have read the right book to interpret your look
You were knocking me down with the palm of your eye

Go na na na...

This is unlike the story, it was written to be
I was riding its back when it used to ride me

And we were galloping manic to the mouth of the source
We were swallowing panic in the face of its force

And I am blue
I am blue and unwell
Made me bolt like a horse

Go na na na...

Now it's done
Watch it go
And you've changed some
Water runs from the snow

And am I so dear?
Do I run rare?
And you've changed some

Peach, plum, pear
Peach, plum
