show me how you do that trick
the one that makes me scream, she said
the one that makes me laugh, she said
and threw her arms around my neck
show me how you do it
and i promise you
that i’ll run away with you
i’ll run away with you

spinning on that dizzy edge
i kissed her face and kissed her head
and dreamed of all the different ways
i had to make her glow
why are you so far away? she said
why won’t you ever know
that i’m in love with you
that i’m in love with you

soft and only
lost and lonely
strange as angles
dancing in the deepest oceans
twisting in the water
you’re just like a dream

daylight licked me into shape
i must have been asleep for days
and moving lips to breathe her name
i opened up my eyes
and found myself alone alone
alone above a raging sea
that stole the only girl i loved
and drowned her deep inside of me
