Rain

from Magnet School by BOY FRIENDS

lyrics

i’m a schoolkid singing stock phrases in giggles
and i feel safe and warm and wet like summer rain
am i blessed by a life lived above ground?
as dewy streetlamps breathe the air into my city

listening to the rain, know what i noticed?
the sound against the street’s from higher than the sky
and makes the ground look wet and unfriendly
even when it’s dry

i’m a loser cause i wanna laugh
you’re a failure cause you wanna run
we’re both failures forever
collecting freckles from the morning sun

the street sign’s fallen now and reaching heavenward
from the sidewalk bouncing like a magnet
do you know where you are?
this lamp is old and cycling hard

i picture teardrops crawling cross a frame of frosty glass
step into that puddle watch it lift my face up
a different kind of surface tension
up in the sky
