Lyrics

You wrap 'round my life like the CSX railway line
Rings 'round this water-bound town
Bringing tinsels and pretzels and bottles of wine to the inland empire

But the gift of the 3AM horn
Is the glimpse of your sweet sleeping face in the morn
And I'll be your antenna, and you'll be my queen 
And I'll buy the mansion, sight unseen

The lights on the harbor at night are a treat for the eye
Each way you look a surprise
Take the boat-taxi back to the Baltimore side
Holding hands on the ride
 
But the smell of molasses and gas
Recedes with each tavern and pub that we pass

And I'll be your antennae, and you'll be my queen
And I'll climb the mountain, sight unseen

Then onto the brick boulevard where we find ourselves laughing
Toujours the boat-taxi
And in a while if you bring me a child I will love her
And keep her close at heart

I keep my eyes on the news and the views of the world
She is a rather-not girl
Wild Ontario summers they're short but they're sharp
Crisp as a funny girl's harp
Far away from the choking petroleum haze
Of my American days
But I'd forsake the lake for the town
Just to follow the rails all the way on back down

Just to be your antenna, and you'll be my queen
And I'll buy the mansion, sight unseen

I will be your antenna, and you'll be my queen
And I'll love you, forever

Love ~ deeper than water
Love is the song I sing, I'm sending along
Love ~ stronger than oxygen
Keep your antennas tuned, into my song
'Cause it's love I'm sending, all the day long
