The Paper Raincoat – Safe In The Sound lyrics

Sinatra's spinning in the other room
She flips it over, hopes he'll be home soon

She's safe in the sound
Safe in the sound
She turns it up loud

The bar is closed now, his friends all said goodbye
Across the street a diner glows, he steps inside

He's safe in the sound
Safe in the sound
Tucked in the crowd

The noises fade
He climbs into an empty train
Leans against the window pane
Silent as it rolls away

Bright apartment lights breathe throughout New York tonight
Sharing all four walls, we are cradled by it all

Lonely days keep me lying here awake
I write songs just to fill up all the space...

(To be continued...)
