Yo La Tengo

That indie hit
We loved the Spring
We met, and split,
And everything

Careered in two,
Doubling the pain
We singly knew,
On a tunnel-bound train

Comes thin and sappy
From someone's phone
(Dance tune to the happy),
Whose tinny ringtone

Stirs ghostly feet,
As the seconds slow,
And strangers repeat
Hello? and Hello?
