​Paratrooper

This song is by Portastatic and appears on the album The Summer Of The Shark (2003).

Yours was not a faithful correspondence
Yours was not a ringing endorsement
Yours was not a roomful of my fear
Yours was not a promise of the good life to come
Yours was not an eye above the person you've become
Yours was not

And I left a hopeful pair of arms
And I left some southern eyes
And I left a mire, a mire that was mine
And I left just in time
Just in time

And here I am with no illusions of our life
And here I am with no illusions
Here I am out in the street
And here I am on your doorstep
I just dropped in
I just dropped in
I just dropped in

Like a paratrooper
Like a paratrooper
Like a paratrooper
Like a paratrooper
