Favourite Food - Tokyo Police Club

With a heart-attack on your plane
You were looking back on your days
How you spent them all in a blur
When they asked if you were for sure

Let the sugar melt down your throat
Cos you know it's sweet getting old
With a lollipop and a rose
Let the hospital be your home

Cos your knees are scratched and your eyes are black
Put a plaster there and I'll sign your cast

In the liner notes at the end
Some familiar names in tiny print
On the cover page of the year
Grainy photographs, greasy hair

But it's noon o'clock and you're still asleep
And your coffee's cold, your coffee's icy

Cos your knees are scratched and your eyes are black
Put a plaster there and I'll sign your cast

Classic Hollywood as a kid
With the volume up all the way
Now you do the same and you're right
Things are better in black and white

But there's another girl in another day
And your favorite food still tastes the same

Cos your knees are scratched and your eyes are black
Put a plaster there and I'll sign your cast
We're the best and the brightest, turn the television on
Have your seatbelts strapped and your helmets on
