Amazon (Album Version)

M.I.A.

I was missing in action
On the side of a carton
I was taken in a Datsun
From a street in Acton

I was sipping on a Rubicon
Thinking 'bout where I come
It's all this for revolution
Cutting up the coupon
Saving for a telephone
Can I call home
Please can I go home

Painted nails, sunsets on horizons
Palm tree silhouette smells amazing
Blindfolds under home made lanterns
Somewhere in the Amazon
They're holding me ransom

Hello, this is M.I.A.
Could you please
Come get me

Smoking on a Benson
Trying to get me undone
Let me go
I don't want your attention
Under submission
Out of frustration I'll do it
I'll scream for the nation

Painted nails, sunsets on horizons
Palm tree silhouette smells amazing
Blindfolds under home made lanterns
Somewhere in the Amazon
They're holding me ransom

Hello, this is M.I.A.
Could you please
Come get me

Minutes turned to hours
And became our dates
When we shared raindrops
That turned into lakes
Bodies started merging
And the lines got gray
Now I'm looking at him thinking
Maybe he's OK

Hello, this is M.I.A.
It's OK
You forgot me
