Neutral Milk Hotel - Naomi

Your prettiness is seeping through
Out from the dress I took from you, so pretty
And my emptiness is swollen shut always
Always a wretch I have become
And please please don't leave me
So empty
I'm hoping she will soon explode
I'm watching Naomi, full bloom

Into one billion tastes and tunes
They hold her down until she shines
One billion angels come and hold her down

It tastes like shit and I must say
I'm tasting Naomi's perfume
She comes and goes most afternoons
One billion lovers wave and love her now
They could love her now and so could I
There is no Naomi in view

She walks through Cambridge stocks and strolls
They could save her soul until she shines
And if she only really knew
One billion angels could come and save her soul
So pretty

And please, please don't leave me here

Jeff Mangum wrote this song about Naomi Yang from the band Galaxie 500, who later wrote that she had discovered the song when someone from Neutral Milk Hotel handed her the LP and told her that the song is about her.
