lyrics

Station Girl

He loved his Burlington girl
Strawberry blond she smoked on the rail

In bed she was the dark of the sea
And when she laughed it was dogs running free

He stayed, the heavens above unmoved
She left, her world always turned so blue

From a window I saw what he did get through
And after all that I know I want a station girl too

In a ribbon of smoke
Over gravel and oil
He walked on the rail with me.
We gathered the air, the air we released
So briefly held on these haunting streets

These moths inside my house too long
So frail in my hand tonight gave me this song
