BRIGHT EYES


Train Under Water Lyrics

You were born inside of a raindrop
And I watched you falling to your death
And the sun, well she could not save you
She'd fallen down too, now the streets are wet
Body of water, toxic and timeless
Atlantic ocean, New York skyline
I always get lost, when I leave the village
So I couldn? t come meet you in Brooklyn last night
But I sing glory from my lowest
And I will say peace to the people I meet
While the world waits for an explosion
That instant of light that wipes the slate clean
So don? t be fooled
no don't get lied to
Love was always cruel
And don? t act strange, don? t be a stranger
It happened to me now it? s happening to you
But if you take that train underwater,
then we could talk it through

Well if I could tame all of my desires
Wait out the weather, it howls in my brain
Because it seems that it? s always changing
The wind's indecision, the sorrowful rain
Yeah, I was a postcard, I was a record
I was a camera until I went blind
And now I am riding all over this island
Looking for something to open my eyes
But I still sing glory from a high rise
And I will say thanks if you? re pouring my drinks
While the world waits for an explosion
That moment in time when we'll be set free

So don? t stay mad, just let some time pass
And in the morning you? ll wake feeling new
And if I don? t come back
I mean, if I get sidetracked
It? s only cause I wanted to
I'm keeping up with the moon on an all night avenue

(got that, make me cry)
