lyrics

She met me out at quiz night
We talked of here and home
Her chocolate truffle eyes could do me harm

She spoke to me in Hebrew
I thought of her in rhymes
And when we left we parted at the door
But oh I wanted more

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
Memories flash by me now that she's my ticket home

She's stuck again on milkshakes
And those classic cruising cars
Her hair turns with her skirt when she floats by

I'm a tragic minimalist
Doesn't get me very far
I bake for her tartes aux poires Bourdaloue
Dans sa rue

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
Her laughter rips the map out of my hands when she blows by

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
I'll taste those dusty roads again 'cause
She's my ticket home

Hold on seasons dropping in so fast
I dreamed a house of perfect viewing glass

Now I call her from the west coast
Say the winters here are mild
But they don't have those windy city charms

She's a drifter with her theories
Her philosophies run wild
Now who could tame an ocean from its side
I think I'll take a dive

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
Her laughter rips the map out of my hands when she blows by

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
I'll taste those dusty roads again 'cause
She's my ticket home

I'll sing my style of song again 'cause
She's my ticket home

Jesse Rivest Wellington, New Zealand

I was raised to move and shift - damn the availability of fast airplanes! But I'd have escaped via water ship, anyway. And it probably still would have sounded like this.
