    Lyrics

    Charades, pop skill
    Water hyacinth
    Named by a poet
    Imitation of life

    Like a koi in a frozen pond
    Like a goldfish in a bowl
    I don't want to hear you cry

    That sugarcane that tasted good
    That's cinnamon, that's Hollywood
    Come on, come on
    No one can see you try

    You want the greatest thing
    The greatest thing since bread came sliced
    You've got it all
    You've got it sussed

    Like a Friday fashion show
    Teenager freezing in the corner
    Trying to look like you don't try

    That sugarcane that tasted good
    That's cinnamon, that's Hollywood
    Come on, come on
    No one can see you try

    No one can see you cry

    That's sugarcane that tasted good
    That's freezing rain, that's what you could
    Come on, come on
    No one can see you cry

    This sugarcane, this lemonade
    This hurricane, I'm not afraid
    Come on, come on
    No one can see me cry

    This lightning storm, this tidal wave
    This avalanche, I'm not afraid
    Come on, come on
    No one can see me cry

    That sugarcane that tasted good
    That's who you are, that's what you could
    Come on, come on
    No one can see you cry

    That sugar cane that tasted good
    That's who you are, that's what you could
    Come on, come on
    No one can see you cry
