I caught all the parachutes
as they fell back down from home
then, we painted in the sky
with a candle here from Rome

I put sulfur in my love for you
you put fire in my eyes
you live inside the residue,
a trick of fading light

I don't need your cigarettes
I only need your fire
And you'd fine me in a factory war
if assembly lines would hire

But you know I don't remember
the scarlet or the scare
And you know I don't remember
a woman in Time Square

You took me on a freight train ride,
white cities that you chase
I have been your alibi
You could be my early grave

Pouring from the Saltless Sea,
the headdress that you wore
billowing in charcoal tea,
the credits and the score

Please don't introduce me
as the plane to end our wars
Please don't introduce me,
American, anymore
Please don't make me answer
how I feel upon your door
how I'm like the ocean
how I'm endless on your shore
