lyrics

I sung all those years to the wrong pairs of ears,
the ones that will listen, but they won't ever hear.
And the girl that I love, she told me to run,
run from every fading failure and every setting sun.

So I made a fool of myself all the time,
thinking I could change the coastline with these little lines.
Catching fish after fish from a lake sealed with ice,
Digging ditch after ditch for a third place prize.

The gravity you feel when your earth's set in stone
is nothing compared to being truly alone
In the darkest of corners, in the darkest of rooms,
in some pocket in some crater on the dark side of moons.

So I made a fool of myself all the time,
thinking I could change the coastline with these little lines.
Catching fish after fish from a lake sealed with ice,
Digging ditch after ditch for a third place prize.
Flipping switch after switch for miswired lights,
All my love for you.

Sun showers in December, and squalls through the mist,
The braying of the hounds, and the salt, and the silt.
Let's put our lives on hold, for just one minute.
For all that I lack, ten times you emit.
