Far along the platform,
move steps to safety cones,
pantegana playground down on the tracks.
Always feel followed by bastard butterfly,
scattered in the sky, lonely and hallow.
Take me home.
Roll me in the grass.
Make it look playful.
Travel in a whisper.
Caught myself thinking.
Caught myself the evil eye.
It's on me all the time.
Take her home.
Roll her in the glass.
Make it look playful.
Travel in whispers.
On the bench, kissing.
Boy you don't know what you're missing.
