guess it all started in your apartment (x5)
you were in europe, she was your sublet
and i thought that she looked like an angel
i put my mouth up against her halo
after your party in front of your roommates
we walked out the doorway and got on the subway
we went two at a time through the turnstile
we went two at a time through the turnstile

and i got your postcard, it was from the pantheon
it was the first peek at greece that i'd had in weeks
and i thank you, wanna say i'm sorry that i got your sublet
and i lit her cigarette
and she smoked and i made some progress
we've all got our little secrets

angel have you ever seen the way these city slickers look
I think they look incredible (x3)
angel have you ever seen the way that coney island looks
I think it looks incredible

    General Commentlove the halo line. also the line "she smoked and i made some progress" line is great because it shows that the affair wasnt a spontaneous, accidental thing.

    General CommentI like the repetition of "we went two at a time through the turnstile". To me, this implies that they went "two at a time" both times during their subway ride (entrance and exit).

    I don't really get this though:

    "after your party in front of your roommates
    we walked out the doorway and got on the subway"

    So Narrator + Sublet attend a (goodbye) party at Girlfriend's house and then Sublet went home with Narrator to his house? Does this make sense? Girlfriend is not in Europe yet, but already Sublet goes home with Narrator? If this was Girlfriend's last night before leaving for Europe, I would think that she and Narrator would probably spend the night together, even if their relationship is not that great....
