Lyrics

Tasting you and rain, I walk down to the train
Trying not to look down
This day could someday be an anniversary
Everything is light and sound

Facing forwards, going slowly, wait for you to show me
Where this train wants to go
Living by the hour, I stop for every flower
Everything is soft and slow

Now all these tastes improve
Through the view that comes with you
Like they handed me my life
For the first time it felt right

Thank you for making me see there's a life in me
It was dying to get out
Holding you, we make two spoons beneath an April moon
Everything is soft and sweet

This cigarette, it could seduce a nation with its smoke
Crawling down by tired throat
Scratches part of me that's purring
Softly stirring

I'm a captain of industry, smoking famously
Feet up on the windowsill
Looking at all these trees, I feel affinity
With everything so soft and still

Budding at my fingertips, touching you I start to bloom
Alive with the trains and passing ships
Soft and sweet along your lips now
I go "Oh, wow"

Thank you for taking me from my monastery
I was dying to get out
With tears of gratitude, I lock my latitude
Cross town train to you

Now all these tastes improve
Through the view that comes with you
Like they handed me my life
For the first time it felt worth it, like I deserved it
