Apollothustra - The Bridge Is Not A Street Lyrics


Apollothustra – The Bridge Is Not A Street Lyrics

No, I ain’t cryin’:
can’t you see how the rain is pourin’?
I don’t need your umbrella;
don’t make a fool out of me.

Last November, she ran away.
She ran away from me and now I cannot suffer the day.

All along the avenue, I strung the pearls dropped in her trail.
But how were they together?
I’m on display in the places we would go:
a thief where once a lover.
And on the avenue, acid rain and shipwrecked smiles:
the ocean’s beast of burden.
In a suit of virtues, tailor made and custom drawn;
unraveled as you walked away.

No, I ain’t cryin’.
Even though we’re keepin’ dry
out of the rain; so my face is wet?
I just feel it that way.

Peregrine Falcon, I have become your prey!
But as I run from you, won’t you follow me?

The bridge is not a street: it’s this camel that I ride
to take me from the avenue
into the desert. I lay against a humpback whale
who tells me how he’s heard the news.
Am I defeated? I felt the rain in my dreams:
the whale is trying to swallow me.
Am I a pharaoh who has summoned his own tomb?
Or an offering to Salome?

No, I ain’t cryin’:
can’t you see how the rain is pourin’?
I can’t believe all the things we said
for it to end this way.
