Jamie Lawson He’s Reading Helena

He’s reading Helena just as his plane takes off

She’s falling asleep through the same film she slept through before

I put my headphones on, listening to someone new

He’s reading Helena, I’m stuck on you

With one hand, he turns the pages, the other always in her hands

And he doesn’t ever let go, not even through the turbulent skies

I find your Beatles playlist, listening to Love Me Do

He’s still reading Helena, I’m still stuck on you

Everyone is dying to find

Someway just to make it through

Someone’s always crucified

For doing what it is they do

He’s reading Helena, over the landing call

She takes her hand out of his, cleans his glasses, then puts them back on

I’ve turned to Dylan, who’s singing how he’s tangled up in blue

Then she takes a book from her bag and she’s reading Helena too

They’re reading Helena, I’m stuck on you

They’re reading Helena, I’m stuck on you
