Every Subway Car

Album: All In Good Time (2010)
  • My backpack was faded black
    But now it's all blue
    It looks whack, but it's compact
    And works like brand new

    I had found an old Greyhound
    But it wasn't my scene
    I'm underground at the turnaround
    This one is pristine

    Warehouses above
    All I'm thinking of
    You gave your heart to me
    And soon the world will see
    Our graffiti love
    Spray-paint on my glove
    They'll wonder who you are
    On every subway car

    I'm on my own I'm sliced alone
    I did it for you
    But I've outgrown
    My wings and flown
    Into something brand new

    I show restraint I'm the patron saint
    Of urban gardens in bloom
    If I don't faint
    Ingesting paint
    Breathing all of these fumes

    Warehouses above
    All I'm thinking of
    You gave your heart to me
    And soon the world will see
    Our graffiti love
    Spray-paint on my glove
    They'll wonder who you are
    On every subway car

    On every subway car you look amazing
    While streaming out of bars
    Their glasses raising
    Systemically refused
    And chemically removed

    Warehouses above
    All I'm thinking of
    You gave your heart to me
    And soon the world will see
    Our graffiti love
    Melted on my glove
    They'll wonder who you are
    On every subway car
    Our graffiti love
    On every subway car
    Our graffiti love
    On every subway car Writer/s: ED ROBERTSON, JIM CREEGGAN, KEVIN HEARN, KEVIN NEIL HEARN, TYLER STEWART
