Terminal 4 05:49
I assign meaning to railway stations, street signs and park benches Landmarks of my triumphs, traumas, heartbreaks and adventures Cities feel like chapters from my autobiography Brought to life in a movie screening only I can see London Heathrow arrivals, you were waiting at Terminal 4 That's when I first knew you did not love me anymore Every time I pass through there I can see us standing there In amongst all the smiling faces, our ghosts still hang in the air Certain locations, precise coordinates transport me Like combinations of words and melody they bring back history Now I’m five and I’ve got nothing but time Now I’m old and I want to go home I never felt so excited as Christmas 1993 We waited so impatiently, just my big brother and me Standing outside the house we lived in, strangers live there now As though we never existed, but we’ll be always there somehow Certain locations, precise coordinates transport me Like combinations of words and melody they bring back history Now I’m five and I’ve got nothing but time Now I’m old and I want to go home I just want to go home

I have a mandolin I play it all night long It makes me want to kill myself I also have a dobro Made in some mountain range Sounds like a mountain range in love But when I turn up the tone On my electric guitar I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me I went out to the forest and caught A hundred thousand fireflies As they ricochet round the room They remind me of your starry eyes Someone else's might not have made me so sad But this is the worst night I ever had I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me Always was You won't be happy with me But give me one more chance You won't be happy anyway Why do we still live here In this repulsive town? All our friends are in New York Why do we keep shrieking When we mean soft things? We should be whispering all the time
