Train Under Water - Bright Eyes

You were born inside of a raindrop
And I watched you falling to your death
And the sun, she could not save you
She?d fallen down to, 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 save peace to the people I meet
While the world waits for an explosion
An instant outline
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

Well if you take that train under water then we could talk it through

If I could attain
All of my desires
Wait out the weather that howls in my brain
Because it?s ease
That it?s always changing
The winds in decision
The sorrowful rain

I was a postcard
I was a record
I was a camera
Until I went blind

And now I?m 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 pour in my drinks
While the world waits for an explosion
And only in time will we be set free

So don?t stay mad
Just let some time pass
And in the morning you?ll wait to feel

And if I don?t come back
I mean if I get side tracked
It?s only because I wanted to

I?m keeping up with the moon on an all night avenue
