Sweet Avenue

Sometimes, I find songs that I want to share with everybody.  This is one of those songs. It’s hard to say why I relate to this song or why it hits me so well. The song is about being in a relationship and I am apathetically single. But I can truly put myself into the story of the song and live in it for just a little while. Give it a listen read the lyrics, I guess.

tasting you and rain I
walk down to the train
try not to look down
this day could someday be
an anniversary
everything is light and sound

facing forwards going slowly
wait for you to show me
where this train wants to go
living by the hour I
stop for every flower
everything is soft and slow

now all these tastes improve
through the view that comes with you
like they handed me my life
for the first time it felt right

thank you for making me
see there’s a life in me
it was dying to get out
holding you we make two spoons
beneath an April moon
everything is soft and sweet

this cigarette it could seduce
a nation with its smoke
crawling down my tired throat
scratches part of me that’s purring
softly stirring

I’m a captain of industry
smoking famously
feet up on the windowsill
looking at all these trees I
feel affinity with
everything so soft and still

budding at my fingertips
touching you I start to bloom
alive with trains and passing ships
soft and sweet along your lips now
I go “oh wow”

thank you for taking me
from my monastery
I was dying to get out
with tears of gratitude
I like my latitude
cross town train to you

now all these tastes improve
through the view that comes with you
like they handed me my life
for the first time it felt worth it

like I deserved it
