Oh the graffiti on the train Oh the graffiti on the train oh no Roll in to her life Oh the graffiti on the train oh
Stepped outside he left his lover sleeping Rain falls he's drowning in his secret Wet streets are quiet as a church hall Last house where children kick the football
Cross roads his heart is beating faster Getting close to asking her the question "Marry me" he wants to paint the words on The night train he's hiding with his spray cans And that is going to ride When the paint is done and dried oh come on
Oh the graffiti on the train Oh the graffiti on the train Oh the graffiti on the train Oh she'll never be the same oh no Roll in to her life Oh the graffiti on the train oh
Day breaks as lovely as she wakes up Sips her cup and dusts her face in make up Black phone she hears the people whisper Someone died themselves train has slipped up
Train comes the coach she's always used to The doors read a "Marry me I love you" Heart stops ecstatic and suspicious She makes the call but he don't pick the phone up The train sped down the line It was last train he would ride oh no
Oh graffiti on the train Oh graffiti on the train Oh graffiti on the train Oh she will never be the same Oh god rolling back into her life Oh graffiti on the train oh

Tc from SaDiscovered this song and album, around May 2013 at a time my marriage fell thru. Sounded like a reflection of my life. Meaning: I had been painting that train since i met her. But by the time she saw the graffiti in the way that made sense to her, I was dead. Slight twist of the lyrics coz in the story it is the guy who is busy planning to do it. while the mirror is, similarly, a distraction from what matters, by the time she leaves it to see the said graffiti it had better b a piece of art, or the make up. That's music.
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
