Train Under Water Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 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 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, so 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 that howls in my brain
Because it seems that it's always changing
The winds indecision, the sorrowful rain

Yeah, 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

Well 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 are set free

So don't stay mad, just let some time pass
And in the morning you awake 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

[Incomprehensible]
Make me cry
[Incomprehensible]
