Marah - Soda lyrics

Soda was just about sixteen
With earthworm lips and deep pools of green
Where his eyes should have been
When he first met Hannah Chang

Down in her father's fried rice place
Just ‘round the corner where he first saw her face
Her tiny smile behind the bulletproof glass
Was framed by a strange sad happiness

From then on so many nights together
Down in the park where the tired pigeons gather
He told her of Puerto Rican sunsets
While she conjured up Chinese snow

They call me "Soda" cause when I was a baby
My mother was so young
That soda was all she gave me
It made me sickly so that's why I shake
Like I'm scared of something
But Hannah, I ain't

Chorus:

Underneath invisible stars
These dirty streets will forever be ours
Long after we leave them behind
To find what others never find

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
No one can steal the dream from us
Underneath invisible stars
These dirty streets will forever be ours

The months went by and their young hearts leaped
Right past the cruelty of the corner creeps
Straight through the forest of old hate songs
On their way to their place in the park

‘Till one October Friday night
When Hannah heard Soda out beneath the street light
Having words with the corner trash
Defending the girl that he found

She wiped her hands
Pulled her apron string
Just as the ghetto church bells began to ring
Just as the cannons of earthly hell
Awoke the shameless night

She ran outside in time to cradle his head
There in her arms his body bled
Lakes on the pavement
Rivers in the gutter
And he sighed as he died
And he told her he loved her

Chorus:

Underneath invisible stars
These dirty streets will forever be ours
Long after we leave them behind
To follow what others never find????

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
No one can steal the dream from us
Underneath invisible stars
These dirty streets will forever be ours
