L Train

Written By: Lauren Faggiano

Conversations over Miscommunication to void humiliation and asphyxiation but I don't know how to let you know that I need you. But if you don't know how to watch me grow, I'll find a way to let you go. And if you can't watch me take to the sky, then I'll gladly wave goodbye. Cause' I don't need no crass tomfoolery to keep me warm at night. And I don't want my ideology to keep me here with you. Check out the ride baby, see how fast she goes. When she gonna get there... nobody knows. If you like the groove baby, and you like the flow, jump aboard the L train no telling where she'll go
