You and me
With our long hair on the gold wall
After midnight we could feel it all
I'd go anywhere you want to

You should see
There's a place I want to take you
When the train comes I will hold you
(When the train comes I will hold you) 'Cause you blow my mind

On the bridge
Levitating 'cause we want to
When the unknown will surround you
(When the unknown will surround you)
There is no right time
There is no right time

The branches of the trees
They will hang lower now
You will grow too quick
Then you will get over it

The branches of the trees
They will hang lower now

There's a place I want to take you
When the unknown will surround you

There's a place I want to take you (were you high)
When they knocked on the door looking for you
When the unknown will surround you
Take my hand as our bodies lift up slowly

There's a place I want to take you (were you high)
When they knocked on the door looking for you
When the unknown will surround you
Take my hand as our bodies lift up slowly

There's a place I want to take you

    General CommentTwo 19 year old girls walk by the railroad tracks late at night in Endicott City.

    They sit on the city bridge where the tracks corss the road into town, with their feet hanging out, their backs to the tracks.

    One takes a picture of their legs with bare feet hanging over the road. They tweet the picture out. "Levitating." they write.

    The train arrives in the distance. It's a slow moving freight, carrying coal. The Conductor sees the girls as he passes. But then something goes wrong. The big train hits a patch of bad rail. There's a loud sound. The coal cars start to tip. It's just at the wrong place. The girls are directly hit and crushed by the coal and cars.

    This is their story, as told by Beach House.

    During the last three minutes of the song, the droning synths which have been there all along, become louder and louder until they overwhelm... the vocals go into reverb and become more and more distant...

    And in the last minute the choral synths have finally taken over as the rhythm becomes fainter and fainter...

    It is a musical metaphor for their death, the unknown surrounding them.

    There is no right time to die.
