Women Related Lyric - Cannonball By Damien Rice

Single: Cannonball
By: Damien Rice
Album: O

Still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
Still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
Still a little hard to say what's going on
Still a little bit of your ghost your witness
Still a little piece of your face I haven't kissed

You step a little closer to me Still i can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall

When you float like a cannonball

Stones taught me to fly, Love taught me to cry, So come on courage! Teach me to be shy

"Cause it's not hard to fall, and I don't wan to lose

It's not hard to grow

When you know that you just don't know....
About the left picture: Just discovered that this particular tree (quite commonly found in Singapore - I saw this next to a road near Club Street) with gangly branches cascading down from its main trunk is called the Cannonball Tree (couroupita guianensis) - couldn't someone have named such pretty flowers and the tree that bears it a lovelier name than "cannonball"!

And in case you're wondering, it's called 'cannonball' because apparently, after flowering, the fruit looks like an ugly mini-brown cannonball [unfortunately, I didn't see any on this particular tree], and too bad for you if one happens to fall on your toes whilst you're walking near it, ouch!!

Chinese Overview: 当Damien Rice的一曲You are Beautiful 成为街歌的时候,我们不妨关注一下他的其他歌曲,歌词也都很美,很对偶,左侧的植物刚好叫做 Cannonball Trees
