Living with Lemon Boy

Living with Lemon Boy Lyrics from Lemon Boy by Cavetown

"There once was a bittersweet man,

"There once was a bittersweet man, And they called him Lemon Boy."

"There once was a bittersweet man, And they called him Lemon Boy." He showed up one day

"There once was a bittersweet man, And they called him Lemon Boy." He showed up one day A year or two ago.

"There once was a bittersweet man, And they called him Lemon Boy." He showed up one day A year or two ago. I don't recall exactly,

"There once was a bittersweet man, And they called him Lemon Boy." He showed up one day A year or two ago. I don't recall exactly, My, how the days blur together.

"There once was a bittersweet man, And they called him Lemon Boy." He showed up one day A year or two ago. I don't recall exactly, My, how the days blur together. But he came to me

"There once was a bittersweet man, And they called him Lemon Boy." He showed up one day A year or two ago. I don't recall exactly, My, how the days blur together. But he came to me Saying, "Have you noticed you're hurting?"

"There once was a bittersweet man, And they called him Lemon Boy." He showed up one day A year or two ago. I don't recall exactly, My, how the days blur together. But he came to me Saying, "Have you noticed you're hurting?" And he never went away.

"Lemon Boy and I started to get along together."

"Lemon Boy and I started to get along together." Whispers when I least expected them

"Lemon Boy and I started to get along together." Whispers when I least expected them Catching me off-balance.

"Lemon Boy and I started to get along together." Whispers when I least expected them Catching me off-balance. Telling me, "Have you noticed how they look at you?

"Lemon Boy and I started to get along together." Whispers when I least expected them Catching me off-balance. Telling me, "Have you noticed how they look at you? Have you noticed your body is all wrong?

"Lemon Boy and I started to get along together." Whispers when I least expected them Catching me off-balance. Telling me, "Have you noticed how they look at you? Have you noticed your body is all wrong? Have you noticed everything's all wrong?"

"Lemon Boy and I started to get along together." Whispers when I least expected them Catching me off-balance. Telling me, "Have you noticed how they look at you? Have you noticed your body is all wrong? Have you noticed everything's all wrong?" And he never went away.

"I helped him plant his seeds

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather."

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather." Before long, every day was a storm

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather." Before long, every day was a storm I was drowning in a body that didn't belong to me

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather." Before long, every day was a storm I was drowning in a body that didn't belong to me And friends who didn't seem to care

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather." Before long, every day was a storm I was drowning in a body that didn't belong to me And friends who didn't seem to care And people who deserved so much more than I could give them.

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather." And all the while, I could hear Lemon Boy

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather." And all the while, I could hear Lemon Boy Whispering in my ear, "Have you noticed they wouldn't care if you were gone?"

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather." And all the while, I could hear Lemon Boy Whispering in my ear, "Have you noticed they wouldn't care if you were gone?" And I believed him

"I helped him plant his seeds And we'd mow the lawn in bad weather." And all the while, I could hear Lemon Boy Whispering in my ear, "Have you noticed they wouldn't care if you were gone?" And I believed him And he never went away.

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him."

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." I was almost gone.

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." I was almost gone. Someone saved me

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." I was almost gone. Someone saved me And I owe her everything.

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." I was almost gone. Someone saved me And I owe her everything. For the first time in months

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." I was almost gone. Someone saved me And I owe her everything. For the first time in months I could hear a voice that wasn't Lemon Boy.

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." And she said, "Have you noticed I'd miss you?

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." And she said, "Have you noticed I'd miss you? Have you noticed I care about you?

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." And she said, "Have you noticed I'd miss you? Have you noticed I care about you? Have you noticed I don't know what I'd do without you?"

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." And she said, "Have you noticed I'd miss you? Have you noticed I care about you? Have you noticed I don't know what I'd do without you?" And I could see Lemon Boy for the weed he was

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." And she said, "Have you noticed I'd miss you? Have you noticed I care about you? Have you noticed I don't know what I'd do without you?" And I could see Lemon Boy for the weed he was And I wanted him out of my garden -

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." And she said, "Have you noticed I'd miss you? Have you noticed I care about you? Have you noticed I don't know what I'd do without you?" And I could see Lemon Boy for the weed he was And I wanted him out of my garden - I wanted him gone!

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." But I didn't know what I'd do without him

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." But I didn't know what I'd do without him Or even how I'd make him leave

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." But I didn't know what I'd do without him Or even how I'd make him leave So he never went away.

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." Lemon Boy lives on in my head

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." Lemon Boy lives on in my head Quieter now.

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." Lemon Boy lives on in my head Quieter now. And we are each other

"It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him." Lemon Boy lives on in my head Quieter now. And we are each other And we're okay.

"So I found myself a citrus friend."

"So I found myself a citrus friend." And he never went away.
