First Train Home
Imogen Heap Lyrics


(I've got to get on it)
(I've got to get on it)
(I've got to get on it)

Bodies disengaged our mouths are fleshing over.
Is this an echo game irises retreating
To ovals of white.
The urge to feel your face
And blood rushing to paint my hand print
A Frisbee one by one
Your vinyl on laminate
Desperate for some kind of contact.

First train home I've got to get on it
First train home I've got to get on it
First train home I've got to get on it
To Catch to catch to catch catch catch.
First train home I've got to get on it
First train home I've got to get on it
First train home I've got to get on it
First Train home

Temporal dead zone where clocks are barely breathing
Yet no one cares to notice for all the yelling
All night clamor to hold it together.
I want to play don't wait forms in the hideaway
I want to get on with getting on with things
I want to run in fields paint the kitchen
And love someone
And I can't do any of that here can I?

First train home I've got to get on it
First train home I've got to get on it
First train home I've got to get on it
First Train home

So what? You've had one too many.
So what? I'm not that much fun to be with
So what? You've got a silly hat on
So what? I didn't want to come here anyway.

What matters to you doesn't matter matter to me.
What matters to me doesn't matter matter to you.
What matters to you doesn't matter matter to them.
What matters to them it doesn't change anything.

Got to get on it first train home
Got to get on it first train home

First train home I've got to get on it
(I've got to get on it)
To catch to catch to catch-catch catch.
(First train home)
First train home I've got to get on it
First train home.
(First train home)

To go to go to go
Get get get get
Out out out out
Now now now now

I just love how she wrote this song based on a boring ass party she went to and wanting to be anywhere else but there. That is such a huge mood

jxjuk

And yet I already read it as an unexpected and complicated breakup (personally).

Epasu Xelar

LMAO that is amazing

uthornss

the beauty of imogen heap is that she is the kind of artist who would rather have 1,000 fans that really understand her than 10,000,000 that just like the beat...she constructs her music, she's a mad scientist mixing technology and lyrics to make masterpieces that remain, unfortunately, unappreciated by the massess....and she doesn't seem to mind at all.

El Australiano

She clearly favors quality over quantity. She could have easily 'sold out' and gone for the big numbers but instead chose to stay true to her craft and focus on a smaller fan base.

Ben White

You can never truly "understand" a song. It is what you make of it. That is a part of the beauty of music. And it's especially true of Immie's songs, because her songs' lyrics are all very nonspecific.

My last channel Got deleted

Every couple years I remember how good this song is and I’ll listen to it at least 20 times before I forget it for a bit but know I’ll be back eventually

William Benjamin

The vocal melodies in this are heart-achingly beautiful, so distinct to her, so unique. I’m constantly staggered by her musical genius; this is art at its best.

Ruth Gayduoi

Imogen Heap is a musical genius

Connie Mason

I am either getting old and out of touch, or the shit they play on the radio now-a-days is truly shit. THIS is music. I adore Imogen Heap; she is beautiful, and has an amazing voice.
