cosmic american lyrics – anais mitchell

i’m a live wire
i’m a short-wave radio
do you copy
i’m a flash of light
from the radar tower to the runway
if i leave you
gonna do it semi automatically
do you blame me

and you are so far
out there in the static
hey baby, am i coming through?
i’m up above the building
i can see forever
out the window of a hotel room
spent a long night
with a stranger i give my body to
still i miss you

still i never knew a love so tender
we’re out behind your astro-van
and you got me up against the fender
you are the cosmic american

i’m a live wire
i’m a short-wave radio
do you copy
i’m a flash of light
from the radar tower to the runway
if i love you
i’m gonna do it semi automatically
do you blame me
do you blame me
do you blame me
