"Paris Train" as written by Ted Barnes and Beth Orton....
Now your sitting on a Paris train laughing at your own jokes again
Sun splits the trees into beautiful broken light
Never cry more tears than you could hold in your hands
When all the world´s airbrushed it´s a sacred bond of trust
Sometimes, sometimes I see right through the scenery
The first place that´s on my mind the last place I find each time
Sometimes, I swim beyond the scenery
The last place that´s on my mind
The first place I find each time

Now I´m sitting on a Paris train molten ash falls like rain
Fire burns the trees it´s a beautiful fatality
Love the way you stand your ground sea moves as mercury
To break its perfect skin to dare to dive within

Sometimes, sometimes I see much more than is good for me
The first thing that´s on my mind the last place I´d look each
Sometimes, I slip inside the imagery and
The last thing that´s on my mind´s
The first thing I´ll do each time

Stars racing to burn out
Just stars racing to burn out
A storm waiting to break
Like trees standing black against the sky
This was inevitable, inevitable
Sometimes, sometimes we can see beyond our history
The last place you hope to find the one that´s been there all
the time
Sometimes, sometimes we can swim beyond the scenery
And the first place that´s on your mind
The first place you´d find each time

    General CommentWell destiny was calling me on this song because of its lyrics. My instincts were telling me to turn the radio on at home on this certain station and this song popped up. So the lyrics have a lot of meaning.
    Perhaps the girl is sad and finds a way out through the beauty of nature. Like when your trapped in a negative thought or trapped in your head for that matter you just want to go somewhere or do something but sometimes you can't. So like maybe she's switching her train of thought to beautiful imagery and then asks herself why she can't think of that in the first place, so she won't end up sad. So she tells herself next time she will think of it first and from there on in the song she starts getting deeper into the beauty of existance.
