Subway

This is a great recent video of Peter performing the song. This is from London, England, on August 5, 2010. Credit to 2XTANZ for the upload.

It’s like there’s a straight way you know, you know
I’ve told you before it’s as thin as ice
As thin as the razor snow
Don’t freeze in the snow
Don’t bake in the heat
I’ll be your breath
There’s a place where we can meet
There’s a place where we can meet
There’s a place where we can meet

Don’t sleep in the subway
Don’t sleep in the pouring rain
Don’t sleep in the subway
Don’t sleep in the pouring rain

Be my voice in my midnight meditation
When I wake, be my heart’s floatation
Come and fill, come and fill from the overflow
Come and play, come and play me like a bird

Don’t sleep in the subway
I’m, I’m needing you well – I
I feel you, you’re closing down, yeah
Get close, talk right through me
Get close, keep tight with me
If you fall now it could be forever
I’m telling you the line is thin now
I’ve told you before this hate is a sin
Empty out for the overflow
Let love begin

Let love (don’t sleep in the subway)
(Don’t sleep in the pouring rain) let love
(Don’t sleep in the subway)
(Don’t sleep in the pouring rain)
Begin

There’s a place where we can meet
There’s a place where we can meet
There’s a place where we can meet
There’s a place where we can meet
