THE SALTWATER ROOM
I opened my eyes last night, and saw you in the low light | Walking down by the bay, on the shore, staring up at the stars that aren’t there anymore | I was feeling the night grow old, and you were looking so cold | So like an introvert, I drew my over shirt around my arms and began to shiver violently before you happened to look and see the tunnels all around me | Running into the dark underground, all the subways around create a great sound | To my motion fatigue: farewell | With your ear to a seashell, you can hear the waves in underwater caves as if you actually were inside a saltwater room | Time together isn’t ever quite enough | When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home | What will it take to make or break this hint of love? | Only time, only time | Can you believe that the crew has gone and they wouldn’t let me sign on? | All my islands have sunk in the deep and I can hardly relax or even oversleep | But I feel warm with your hand in mine, when we walk along the shoreline | I guess we’ll never know why sparrows love the snow | We’ll turn out all of the lights and set this ballroom aglow | So tell me, darling, do you wish we’d fall in love? | Yeah, all the time | All the time | Time together isn’t ever quite enough | When you and I are alone,
I’ve never felt so at home | What will it take to make or break this hint of love? | Only time, only time | When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of? | If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone? | So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love? | All the time, all the time
