Taxi Cab

  • Unsentimental, traveling around
    Sure of myself, sure of it now
    But you were standing there so close to me
    Like the future was supposed to be
    In the aisles of the grocery
    And the blocks uptown
    I remember, remember it well
    But if I'd forgotten, could you tell?
    In the shadow of your first attack
    I was questioning and looking back
    You said, "Baby, we don't speak of that"
    Like a real aristocrat

    Compound to compound, lazy and safe
    Wanted to leave it, wanted to wait
    When the taxi door was open wide
    I pretended I was horrified
    By the uniform and gloves outside
    Of the courtyard gate
    You're not a victim, but neither am I
    Nostalgic for garbage, desperate for time
    I could blame it on your mother's hair
    Or the colors that your father wears
    But I know that I was never fair
    You were always fine

    Unsentimental, traveling around
    Sure of myself, sure of it now
    You were standing there so close to me
    Like the future was supposed to be
    In the aisles of the grocery
    And the blocks uptown
    I remember, remember it well
    And if I'd forgotten, could you tell?
    In the shadow of your first attack
    I was questioning and looking back
    You were standing on another track
    Like a real aristocrat Writer/s: Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij
