There was a girl, as old as the river, but pretty and sharp like you wish you could be
Seduced each of yr boyfriends a long time before you
Somebody call an ambulance, I just murdered a party but don’t tell me that romance is dead too
Oh! It was a fragment, kinda lost sight when the tracks bent, and the crowds moved in like the sea and you were drowned to me
I think you are the pale haze of the morning
You as the spark I want, you as the glance I caught
Everyone’s a story, everybody’s late for something
And in the real world, where the power works and the witches tear up their losses over the bridge
I question your beliefs, but I'm in awe and I want in on this
Those words you’ll never surrender, can’t hide in fiction forever
I write our luck in capitals
Oh! From the shard to the shore, the city dances to death and taxes
I've done my edgework, I know yr signatures
I wish you were a stranger I could talk to, we could chalk that door, we could chant that code
Everyone’s a secret, everybody’s hiding something
Back in the real world, where the brickwork sprawls and the concrete climbs to stars you’ll never see
You ask me what I need? Well I've seen “down”, now I want “underneath”
Those words you’ll never surrender, can’t hide in fiction forever
I write our luck in capitals
And I'm still waiting
There is no hidden door at Leincester Gardens
There is no London Below
So. Those words you’ll never surrender, can’t hide in fiction forever
I write our luck in capitals
And I'm still waiting.
