M.I.A. Lyrics


I was missing in action
On the side of a carton
I was taken in a Datsun
From a street in Acton

I was sipping on a Rubicon
Thinking 'bout where I come
It's all this for revolution
Cutting up the coupon
Saving for a telephone
Can I call home
Please can I go home

Painted nails, sunsets on horizons
Palm tree silhouette smells amazing
Blindfolds under home made lanterns
Somewhere in the Amazon
They're holding me ransom

Hello, this is M.I.A.
Could you please
Come get me

Smoking on a Benson
Trying to get me undone
Let me go
I don't want your attention
Under submission
Out of frustration I'll do it
I'll scream for the nation

Painted nails, sunsets on horizons
Palm tree silhouette smells amazing
Blindfolds under home made lanterns
Somewhere in the Amazon
They're holding me ransom

Hello, this is M.I.A.
Could you please
Come get me

Minutes turned to hours
And became our dates
When we shared raindrops
That turned into lakes
Bodies started merging
And the lines got gray
Now I'm looking at him thinking
Maybe he's OK

Hello, this is M.I.A.
It's OK
You forgot me

I was missin' in action
On the side of a carton
I was taken in a Datsun
From a street in Acton [x2]

I was sipping on a Rubicon
Thinking 'bout where I come
Its all this for revolution
Cuttin' up the coupon
Saving for a telephone
Can I call home
Please Can I go Home [x2]

Painted nails, sunsets on horizons
Palm trees silhouette smells amazing
Blindfolds under home made lanterns
Somewhere in the Amazon
They're holding me Ransom [x2]

Hello This is M.I.A.
Could you please Come get me [x4]

Smoking on a Benson
Tryin' to get me undone
Let Me Go
I don't want your attention
Under Submission
Out of frustration I'll do it
I'll scream for the nation [x2]

Painted nails, sunsets on horizons
Palm trees silhouette smells amazing
Blindfolds under home made lanterns
Somewhere in the Amazon
They're holding me Ransom [x2]

Hello This is M.I.A.
Could you please Come get me [x4]

Minutes turned to hours
And Became our dates
When We Shared raindrops
That turned into Lakes
Bodies started Merging
And the lines got grey
Now I'm looking at him thinking
Maybe He's okay [x2]

Hello This is M.I.A
It's okay You forgot me [x8]

This song is about a kidnapped girl with stockholm syndrome.

@miamatangi I feel like where ever we live we get Stockholm and munchausen at the same time,

rikinhouston

True. It's really fucking great, though, and a great example.

Eric Systrom

She's probably the most important person making music today since n.w.a. or public enemy. What is said isn't palatable for the masses but needs to be said and it's undeniably great interesting construct of time changes that grab the pop ear. It sounds pretty but it ain't a pretty story. I bet she was asked to write a sexy love song and this is what was handed to em and they missed the point entirely. Good for her. Better for us.

Nine Roots

Lol this is about a kidnapping yes , but did you get the message?

Sohan Desai

@bill lennix It is. Sounds like that the kidnapped girl gets the Stockholm syndrome and sympathizes with the person who kidnapped her. At the end, she switches the lyric to
"Hello, It's MIA, It's okay that you forgot me."

bill lennix

i think so but doubt it, what is it?

chris ducrest

Exouce Ngadi
