Black Screen

Album: American Dream (2017)
  • You couldn't make our wedding day
    Too sick to travel
    You fell between a friend
    And a father

    I owe you dinner, man
    I owe you something
    You talk to me
    Like I was inside
    We were just waking up
    For a moment

    I meant to get to you
    On the turning
    Things sneak up on me
    Like a landslide comes

    Been saving e-mail trails
    Kept together
    I read them back sometimes
    To remember
    The time I wrote to you
    From the island
    Your quick replies
    Made me high
    Where have you been?
    In the room
    So I stopped turning up
    My hands kept pushing down
    In my pockets
    I'm bad with people things
    But I should have tried more

    Been watching images
    From the station
    Earth one from satellites
    All streaming
    Feels slow at seventeen thousand miles an hour
    You could be anywhere
    On the black screen
    On the black screen
    On the black screen
    On the black screen
    On the black screen

    You could be anywhere
    On the black screen Writer/s: James Murphy, Al Doyle
