about

I'm sure we can all relate to a subway crush. This was about a real girl, though she never went out with me. I recorded 2 versions of this song. One was the first track off the debut Francis Friday album, which you can find on francisfriday.bandcamp.com/album/the-streets-are-for-keeps. This was the more straightforward, pop version. It's a fun one.

lyrics

Subway Girl, 8:50am in the subway station
I got your name but I got no location
of my heart which was left on the platform

Subway Girl, rolling away to the 6th avenue
Mine's Union Square and if she only knew
You give me 1 and then I'll give you 2

Subway Girl, spinning electro while you're dainty steppin'
living in Williamsburg somewhere near heaven
Out of control while I'm reading the news

If I never even met you life would go on
Now riding the train seems so sad without you

Subway Girl, taking the L train to work in the morning
How can commuting seem fun when it's boring?
Riding with you is like painting a picture

Subway Girl, I met you that hot day at Coney Island
Mermaid Parade in the sea and the sand
This song is my way of sculpting for you

If I never even met you life would go on
Now riding the train seems so sad without you
