There is a radiance, usually afforded to a source of light,
Vomiting gradients,
Beaming all around you as you walk tonight,
Tell me Iris-
What if the sight of you could take my eyes?

Princess Impermanent,
Princess Always Looking for the Next Result.
And when they serve you it,
Don't you always wish that you had something else?
So indeterminate,
So unobtainable, it must be hell-
That you should burn for it, and not exactly know its face,
But it's something like a feeling.

And oh,
When you're hoping to know
What you wanted to know,
But oh,
But it comes and it goes,
But it comes and it goes,
I'll help you find the word for it

And Iris-
Cancel all the things you had to do.
If you're an island,
I will find some meaning in the waves for you.
Until the light coming out of the coves,
Coming out of the coves,
It falls like life,
Filling into the deep blue,
Don't you know that I see you, now,
Like for the first time without eyelids?

And oh,
When you're hoping to know
What you wanted to know,
And oh
But it sticks in the throat,
But it sticks in the throat,
I'll help you find a word for it,
I'll give you something to believe in,
Cause there has to be a word for this,
Or it would only be a feeing.
