Leif Vollebekk - When the Subway Comes Above the Ground Lyrics

  • In T.O. I was laughing
  • At my friend who sold his soul
  • I guess it wouldn’t've been so funny had I not sold mine for less
  • Orange smokestacks in the sunset casting shadows until our faces drowned
  • It’s better to have left and laughed than never to have left at all
  • I found myself on a subway coming above the ground
  • I used to tango
  • But that, that was then
  • I danced too close to the band that’s how I got this ringing in my ears
  • And sometimes I just can’t sleep from the sound
  • I can’t hear it during the day, It’s just at night or when things get quiet
  • Like when the subway comes above the ground
  • In Tennessee, I went looking
  • For someone to throw me against the wall
  • I wanted to be inspired until disheartened, spend the money I’d hard-earned
  • Oh, just to see his name with flashing yellow lights bulbs all around
  • But he left us in the Mississippi
  • He wasn’t even thirty-one
  • If only he’d come up like a subway from the ground
  • In springtime, I was standing
  • With a brown dog by my side
  • I was sweating I was staring at Mayan ruins
  • Then I was next to you on that bus going straight out of town
  • From Memphis and Nashville to New York City
  • Your jaw was wide and pretty
  • And you turned to me and said, “Am I in ruins like the outskirts of the city where all the subways come above ground?”
  • And I said no
  • In Iceland, it was festival season
  • And I went knocking at your door
  • You opened up and there you were
  • With the hale of the porchlight you were crowned
  • We stayed up all night
  • Phrases fading like countryside in the rearview mirror
  • I was hoping that one day you’d be next to me or at least somewhere near
  • When the subway comes above the ground
