This is from the Some Girls digital EP by Alien Knife Fight.


You said you couldn't stay.
I wanted you to go away.
there's so much i want to do.
Arm's length away from me,
could you step closer please?
Let's see how well we do.
You show up unannounced,
swing in from out of town,
but I couldn't leave the room.
Now breathe as I get down,
and listen to the sound of the slow train.

In another minute I'll be in your arms.
In another minute we'll be gone.

Jupiter is shining on the hawk that flies at dawn.
He lay me dreaming on your bed.
You watched me in my sleep,
You knew that I'd go deep,
and for a moment you thought I was dead.
The science turns me on,
the motor hums along,
deciphering your wicked wink.
Leaving me little clues,
Observing as I lose my way to you.

In another minute I'll be in your arms.
In another minute we'll be gone.
