Paris Train

(Beth Orton / Ted Barnes)

Lyrics

Now your sitting on a Paris train
Laughing at your own jokes again
Sun splits the trees
Into beautiful broken light
Never cry more tears
Than you could hold in your hands
When all the world's airbrushed
 It's a sacred bond of trust

Sometimes sometimes
I see right through the scenery
The first place that's on my mind
The last place I find each time
Sometimes
I swim beyond the scenery
The last place that's on my mind
The first place I find each time

Now I'm sitting on a Paris train
 Molten ash falls like rain
Fire burns the trees
 It's a beautiful fatality
Love the way you stand your ground
Sea moves as mercury
To break its perfect skin
To dare to dive within

Sometimes sometimes
I see much more than is good for me
The first thing that's on my mind
The last place I'd look each time
Sometimes
I slip inside the imagery
And the last thing that's on my mind's
The first thing I'll do each time
Each time each time

Stars racing to burn out
Just stars racing to burn out
A storm waiting to break
Like trees standing black against the sky
This was inevitable
This was inevitable

Sometimes sometimes
We can see beyond our history
The last place you hope to find
The one that's been there all the time
Sometimes
We can swim beyond the scenery
And the first place that's on your mind
The first place you'd find each time
Each time each time each time each time

Stars Racing to burn out
A Storm Waiting to break
This was inevitable
Inevitable
