about

Turtles represent caring for someone who has no capacity to care back. Dependency plays a major part in this song - your lover becomes famous, changes her name, yet calls you to steady herself. Inevitability is also at play - there’s nothing you can say to change her, you’ll keep feeding the turtles, and you will have to meet again someday. Structurally, this song is inspired by Roy Orbison’s “In Dreams”, where each element occurs only once.

lyrics

There’s no need to be nervous,
I’m feeding all your turtles.
You called me up last night again
asking if my bed was made

God I heard your name changed
It’s how I know you’re famous.
And I don’t believe in you but I do believe in destiny.
I went to see a teller and she said it’s not about me.

Wish there’s something I could say
Wish there’s something I could say
WIsh there’s something I could say to you
that you’d let come through

But I never wanna see you again
No I never wanna see you again
No I never wanna see you again
I know that I will see you again

There’s no need to be nervous,
I’m feeding all your turtles.
