Jens Lekman - The One Dollar Thought

rate me

You wake up so early

Fresh snow on the window

Two feet meet the cold floor

To pick up the rainbow

Of yesterdays commercials and mail

A bright and colourful tail

As silent as santa

You reach out your antenna

To paint my mood

And I will work for food

But I would die

For your love

You say you'll give me

A dollar to know

What I'm thinking of

You show me your currencies

Euros and dollars

Your eyes like a baby's

Reflecting the colours of

Presidents and scientists

You say you wanna be

A one dollar bill

When you've seased to exist

And if that is the value

Of something invaluable

Then maybe I can afford

Your love

I stood on your balcony

And watched the sea

You deserve someone better

Than a bum like me

So I cracked a one dollar thought

You say "honey, that's a lot"

Well duh, it's the value

Of something invaluable

And I will never afford your love
