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

(chrous 1)
That's sugarcane, that tasted good
That's cinnamon, that's hollywood
C'mon, c'mon, 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 sized
Like a Friday fashion show teenager
Freezing in the corner
Trying to look like you don't try

(repeat chorus 1)

No one can see you cry

That's sugarcane, that tasted good
That's freezing rain, that's what you could
C'mon, c'mon, no one can see you cry

This sugarcane
This lemonade
This hurricane, I'm not afraid
C'mon, c'mon, no one can see me cry
This lightning storm
This tidal wave
This avalanche, I'm not afraid
C'mon, c'mon, no one can see me cry

(chorus 2)
That's sugarcane, that tasted good
That's who you are, that's what you could
C'mon, c'mon, no one can see you cry

(repeat chorus 2)
