lucy wainwright roche – soft line lyrics

Loading...

one smile is a lot to ask
from a city known for cl-ss
and for all of the trains that p-ss
five for every hour

bad luck is a rule of thumb
lapping up against the doors of some
isn’t that where the sand comes from
that lies beside the sea

watch out or the sun will set
on the picture we tried to get
on the story of why we met
the maker or the man

so light up with a golden blaze
but it’s as empty as any maze
and they sure build ’em high these days
you wander or you climb

see none of this was mine
i knew that almost all the time
but i took a soft line
with you

a good plan can be hard to find
here you can choose from a dozen lines
but they all run on railroad time
so everyone agrees

but sometimes it’s a shorter walk
miss the station, miss the talk
and miss the opening door you locked
and look the other way

see none of this was mine
i knew that almost all the time
but i took a soft line
with you

time to stay or go
we didn’t really know
well let the record show
that i do now
