song by Eleanor Friedberger
All Known Things lyrics

Sun can set and scatter
For an hour on the horizon
The clouds can all collide a scoop
Right before my eyes
And the sweetest bird on Earth can sing
The best round of all time can ring
Your beauty stands along
Amongst all known things, all known things
Your beauty stands along
Amongst all known things, all known things

I'm at the exhibition, in the womb of the museum
I pay for admition, no kissing in the mausoleum
Even if you have a twin, I wouldn't notice her or him
Your beauty stands along
Amongst all known things, all known things
Your beauty stands along
Amongst all known things, all known things

Walk along the ruins, and watch the haze dissolve the skyline
At the hotel we saw in spring, abandoned now to decay
As your beauty stands along
Amongst all known things

Million suns in distant space,
Will shine a little brighter
Throw a shadow on your face
And blind me with the light.
Words are still discovering
Will give us better suns to sing
Your beauty stands along
Amongst all known things, all known things
Your beauty stands along
Amongst all known things, all known things
