are you from sweden? i would really like to know i didn’t think you would be but i had to think of something to throw myself together won’t you tell me about your life what you think and what you got going i’m not asking you to be my... what do you do with your time here–have you ever seen the sands? won’t you go with me down there though i don’t know why you would trust me all of the moonlight is worthy of a glimpse here in the night i don’t know what i’m getting into but i think i’m gonna stay here
camber runs for miles and we fall to the sands warm me up burn me up because i’m cold and unsettled pray tell the masses would nary think of doing what i’m gonna do but i don’t know better there you go we’re obvious and yet for tearing up the place well the fences were further proof of that there we are girl just cold enough to railroad straight through my dense so turn it up brighter in your stiff english morning and on the elevation the apparent way out was plotted wrong so the walk was long but we’re surely better for it and all the minutes that we spent were straight up and entirement tells me that maybe we’ll meet again there we are girl
The Trains 02:14
and when the warmest bulb arrived i stood impatient on the coldest platform to head out across the every mile that i never calculated hence the ever-changing route and late-rate tracks to put me in position so out of position and it looks like i’ve missed out but i’m staying in just be home girl when i call you
Five Minutes 05:01
can we meet up later? i’m gonna sleep for a few hours
everywhere we step around in this town it’s all too sweet to see your face and in the light i’ll share my space with rested wings and sharpened pace here in the afternoon windows where sweaters seam the needle flows across the lips the sound i know the touch i don’t but here we go hours and hours underneath the sheets with things i’d never think to speak and if you think my timing’s off it’s not as bad as my locale and really don’t you think we are just young enough to feel it out well here i am to take my swings so men stand it up c’mon men stand it up now
and it’s off with the radio i won’t take back the night but i hope i’ll see your face again we had trouble with the keys but we’ll say that we are yes we are just so excite so excited for us to have wasted any time we’re far too set right now you tell me that perhaps we should have but i don’t no i don’t share the shoulders of a man who shows and shoulders should’ves we had trouble with the locks but we’ll blame just the beach or the trains and we’re fixed up tight in it we were just up along the lines but i’m glad i met you there and all the locks are read
