Imitation Of Life - Lyrics by Rem


Lyrics
Charades, pop skill

Water hyacinth, named by a poet

Imitation of life.

Like a koi in a frozen pond.

Like a goldfish in a bowl.
I don't want to hear you cry.


Thats sugarcane that tasted good.

Thats cinnamon, thats Hollywood.
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you try.


You want the greatest thing

The greatest thing since bread came sliced.

You've got it all, you've got it sized.

Like a Friday fashion show teenager

Freezing in the corner

Trying to look like you don't try.


Thats sugarcane that tasted good.

Thats cinnamon, thats Hollywood.
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you try.


No one can see you cry.


That sugar cane that tasted good.

That freezing rain, that's what you could.
C'mon, c'mon on no one can see you cry.


This sugarcane

This lemonade

This hurricane, I'm not afraid.
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you cry.


This lightning storm

This tidal wave

This avalanche, I'm not afraid.
C'mon, c'mon no one can see me cry.


That sugar cane that tasted good.

That's who you are, that's what you could.
C'mon, c'mon on no one can see you cry.


That sugar cane that tasted good.

That's who you are, that's what you could.
C'mon, c'mon on no one can see you cry.
