lyrics

Warm Lightning


I buttoned my shirt
She laid on her side
I leaned down to kiss her
She put her hand over her eyes
And my aeroplane
Was outside the window
I said maybe I should stay
She said maybe you should go
So I took a drive
Through the lateness that night
By the houses and phantoms
In that quieter light

60 some years
Can go by in a minute
But I love a world
That has you in it
And it’s a warm lightning
So let me be clear
Wherever you are
I want to be near
Warm lightning

I love the mornings
When you’re up before me
I can still smell your perfume
And the fall in the trees
And the traffic is thinning
And so is my hair
The sweet note that you left me
On the floor by the stairs
Said isn’t amazing,
Can you believe our luck?
We’ve seen some hard things
But we’re still in love

600 years
Can go by in a minute
But I love a world
That has you in it
Yeah it’s a warm lightning
So let me be clear
Wherever you are
I want to be near
Yeah it’s a warm lightning
So let me be clear
Wherever you go
I want to be near
Warm lightning
