Neko Case Lyrics
8. City Swan
Baby, come out I'll meet you in the street At the place by the old fire station We'll get something to eat, Like we talked about. Baby, come down It's been a while now I've got so many things I could tell you, If my stubborn mouth doesn't let me down. And I can't look at you straight-on You're made from something different than I know I try to slip the marching clock But centipedes invade my thoughts Without free will I heel and I go I step onto that metal plate, Where it meets the dazzling sound of trains, And I beg those trains to run. Cause I can't look at you straight-on You're made from something different than I know My eyes are on the sidewalk, It's gum holding your feet I swear under my breath Because I'm starving in your gravity You're made from something different than I know You linger just a little long, I see your gun is drawn with the safety on You can walk me back to my hotel Like it was home. And I smell those fools you made cordwood of In petty dreams that leave me sleeping here, in your arms. City swans, Our crook'd necks long City swans And I can't look at you straight-on You're made from something different than I know And it breaks my heart just like the day, That I looked down and I realized I'd been sailing so long I'd become the shore City swans, Our crook'd necks long City swans
