alt-J - Pusher

[Verse 1]
If you're willing to wait for the love of your life
Please wait by the line
And you know dispersive prisms rainbow
But my native optimism isn't broken by the light
The idea of life without company fell suddenly
It crashed through the ceiling on me and pinned me to the pine
And layer upon layer of hope and doubt
Will crush bones to oil in time

[Chorus 1]
Are you a pusher or are you a puller?
I pull the weight towards me
And I lack the zest of a lemon, looking forward
Unless I have a woman pushing me

[Verse 2]
A canopy of red-billed quelea
Passed over the blue
A five-hour flock, not one dives down
To tell you the truth
As night falls, a quelea crawls
And whispers on his last wings
"So abundant are we, left alone, I shall be
But a waited phone never rings"
