Schwa Lyrics

Lady Vanilla

Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
You came into the room and sat down in a chair. 
Some magic shone about you and there was stardust in the air. 
The sun came in the window just to shine upon your table; 
I felt a sudden need to cry, but found I was not able. 

So I enter your dominion with a weak a tender eye 
and all too soon I'm drifting with your aura floating by. 
And then I am a planet, or a dust mote with a friend 
and I'm looking in your eyes so deep, they never seem to end. 

I can hang my head down with the saddest willow, 
I can taste the wind that makes the boat's sail billow, 
I can lay my head down on a soft, white pillow, 
but I can't have a taste of Lady Vanilla. 

You silently respond to me as I go swimming by 
and I keep seeing circles, no matter what I try. 
Vanilla's made of magic; my dreams with it are laced, 
but it's dark as thick molasses and it's bitter to the taste. 
Then suddenly you leave the room and I'm spinning in your wake 
and I can't swim and I can't drown in your vanilla lake. 
Come back and make the sun shine in, come back and make me smile, 
if not for one forever, for just a million whiles.
