Four Seasons Train

The sound of flowers blooming on the hills belongs to spring
On the next train carriage, summer makes a friendly cameo
The scenery from the train window changes faster than you do
Like a rapid melody played on black and white keys
 
I follow the sweet traces of your perfume
Seeking clues to prove that you are still in bloom
The train chugs on, through weeping autumn leaves
The closer I get to you, the more it looks like winter
 
Toot-toot, the train whistle meets a mysterious mist
I lose the way just as I'm ready to face you
You pout and look a little confused
You say you'd forgotten the warmth of my body
 
Your eyes have the solitary airs of a cat
I don't care if it's dangerous to get close
I'll remember how fast you spun around
And shook me off with cat-like footsteps
 
Unfriendly faces as soon as the door is kicked open
Every face tense with the threat of fists
Every hero wants to put on a show for you
You stand on your tip-toes and leave a kiss on my nose
 
I follow the sweet traces of your perfume
Seeking clues to prove that you are still in bloom
The train chugs on, through weeping autumn leaves
The closer I get to you, the more it looks like winter
 
Toot-toot, the train whistle meets a mysterious mist
I lose the way just as I'm ready to face you
You pout and look a little confused
You say you'd forgotten the warmth of my body
 
Your eyes have the solitary airs of a cat
I don't care if it's dangerous to get close
I'll remember how fast you spun around
And shook me off with cat-like footsteps
 
Thanks!
