lyrics

RADIO

soon you will get off the train
walk five blocks to me in the rain
the radiator squeaks its piece of mind
everybody's got an opinion around here

here I sit with my greatest fear
waiting for the snow to reappear
darling you know the right words
you always say them
so I'll chop the onions
while Miles Davis is playin
on the radio

the streets are crumbling and dirty
everybody's in such a big hurry
but there's a robin staring quizzically
wondering why we can't see that

we don't have sit with our greatest fear
waiting for the snow to reappear
darling you know the right words
you always say them
but I'm singing songs
nothing like they are playing
on the radio

together we could tackle the odds
throw that status quo away
the future is broad
the greatest type of beauty
comes with effort over time
ain't no better reason for being alive

I don't want to sit with my greatest fear
waiting for the snow to reappear
darling this country's so pretty
won't you come with me?
we could go dancing in other cities
who needs the radio?
