Lemon
See through in the sunlight 
She wore lemon 
But never in the daylight 
She's gonna make you cry
She's gonna make you whisper and moan
And when you're dry
She draws her water from the stone 

And I feel
Like I'm slowly, slowly, slowly slipping under 
And I feel
Like I'm holding onto nothing 

She wore lemon 
To color in the cold grey night 
She had heaven 
And she held on so tight 

A man makes a picture 
A moving picture
 Through the light projected
He can see himself up close 
A man captures color
A man likes to stare 
He turns his money into light to look for her

And I feel
Like I'm drifting, drifting, drifting from the shore 
And I feel
Like I'm swimming out to her

 Midnight is where the day begins  Midnight is where the day begins  Midnight is where the day begins 

 Lemon 
See through in the sunlight 

A man builds a city
With banks and cathedrals 
A man melts the sand so he can
See the world outside
A man makes a car
(She's your destination)
And builds roads to run them on
A man dreams of leaving 
But he always stays behind 

And these are the days
When our work has come asunder 
And these are the days
When we look for something other

 Midnight is where the day begins  Midnight is where the day begins  Midnight is where the day begins  Midnight is where the day begins  Midnight is where the day begins 

 Midnight is where the day begins  Midnight is where the day begins  Midnight is where the day begins 

A man makes a picture 
A moving picture
 Through the light projected
He can see himself up close 
A man captures color
(She's your destination)
A man likes to stare 
There's no sleeping there
He turns his money into light to look for her (she's imagination)

 Lemon 
She is the dreamer 
She's imagination  Through the light projected
He can see himself up close
