I was on the F-Train Thinkin' bout a holiday

I was on the M-1
Dreaming bout my getaway
Rest, right, reset
In-flight headset
Feeling like i'm 15
Wandering with the misfits
Then all went silent
Purples/violets
A kind of cursive quiet
One with the starry eyelids
A sweet, unsweetened
An eve — uneven
Lights trailed like incense
To the figure in the distance

——-
You are all I need
Nothing said could change a thing
Where you go — I go
Just say and I'll leave

Cuz you are all I need
——-
I met the King of Sweden
When I was walking in the headlights
Drowning in a bender
Frozen at a red light
I'm always flyin'
So I'm always cryin'
Losing my emotions
On a desert island
Looked just like heaven
Seven alligator seven
Spoke to the reverend
Still filled me with aggression
Slept dry in tents
The moon was low and incensed
Was it the sun on the horizon?
That lit the figure in the distance

——-
You are all I need

Nothing said could change a thing Where you go — I go

Just say — I'll be
Cuz you are all I need
You are all I need

So much more
Made me
So much more
