lyrics

the contours of the departure lounge
brag themselves in crap corduroy colours
and wish upon us anonymity
this is no place to mark the remaining moments

you fidget in the jacket you quickly bought
when the rain turned cold and we didn't know one another
standing next to one another under the market stall tarp
as the gutters swell

here we are at the airport
with just a couple of names and numbers
our lives laid out like the cargo bays before us
so we kiss
hungry and we're done
and the pain is instant and numb

how could we
you and me
and the logic of the universe
and texting, it's uncertain, but I can the hear the catch in your breath
and i can feel the unpracticed tension in your hands and in your face
and I know it's love
in one of its character actors

his wings his wings his wings
folded and unfolded and beat the air out of me

here we are at the airport
with just a couple of names and numbers
our lives laid out like the cargo bays before us
so we kiss
hungry and we're done
and the pain is instant and numb
