Track Name: I Was A Motorcycle
I was a motorcycle
Rolling around the town
In love with everyone
And letting everyone who loved me down

I was a television
Not listening
My eyes were closed
My face was just a flickering screen

But the shadows in between
My smile and my teeth
Dissolve and shatter
In the light that shines from underneath

Your skin just like water
Under the skimming stones
Of these tired fingertips
Across your body lightly thrown

When your eyes invite me home
And you kiss me I will go
With you
To the light
