Lyrics


Sunburn

So there we were, back home from somewhere inside my head
Oh, bravely I fought off the monsters beneath her bed
Pillars of postwar books supported by frame of mind
While she memorized the pages that I tried to not hide behind
She took my hand in hers and whispered her love for me
The lantern died that night but we didn’t need to see
Implying that she’s the bee’s knees and I am the cat’s meow
It’s funny how she recalls what I can’t remember now

But when her smile came back and I didn’t feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we’d live and we’d learn
Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn
I got a sunburn

So there we were out there, unaware of where we’d been
We kicked off our flipflops and swung from the rooftops again
It’s awkward but I’ll confess she’s all I can think about
And it’s funny how I recall what she can’t remember now

But when her smile came back and I didn’t feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we’d live and we’d learn
Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn

Oh, afterglow, look out below
We left a trail of dust behind
As we parted ways, she held my gaze
And left an imprint on my mind
I tried not to cry as we said goodbye
And hung the clouds above my town
But I shed a tear when she disappeared
Cause now I’m a stranger on the ground

When her smile came back and I didn’t feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack
We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we’d live and we’d learn
But she got a tan, and I got a sunburn
She got a tan, and I got a sunburn
Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn

Vanilla Twilight

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere
‘Cause I’ll doze off safe and soundly
But I’ll miss your arms around me
I’d send a postcard to you dear
‘Cause I wish you were here

I’ll watch the night turn light blue
But it’s not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly
The silence isn’t so bad
Till I look at my hands and feel sad
‘Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I’ll find repose in new ways
Though I haven’t slept in two days
‘Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone

But drenched in vanilla twilight
I’ll sit on the front porch all night
Waist-deep in thought because when I think of you
I don’t feel so alone

I don’t feel so alone
I don’t feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I’ll think of you tonight
I’ll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I’ll taste the sky and feel alive again
And I’ll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won’t forget you
Oh, if my voice could reach back through the past
I’d whisper in your ear,
Oh darling I wish you were here

Air Traffic

The bird is here and we are off
To wherever those wings take us
The atmosphere is crawling with airlines
That wind through the clouds and look down on the crowds

Relax your back and let the noise
Sing you to sleep in my arms
If you awake before we arrive
I will carry you down and I won’t make a sound

The scent is strong as we move on
And breathe in the pristine crime scene
The false veneer is old like a substitute
Volunteer from, oh, some other year

I’m just a shell as far as I can tell
So I’ll paint my eyes a light green
The silver beams are twirling and swirling
Throughout your dreams like air traffic streams

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 planes
That aren’t there anymore
I was feeling the night
Grow old
And you were looking so cold
Like an introvert
I drew my overshirt
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
Is just never 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?
We need 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
Can you believe that the crew
Has gone
And wouldn’t let me sign on?
All my islands have sunk
In the deep
So I can hardly relax
Or even over sleep
I feel as if I were home
Some nights
When we count all the ship lights
I guess I’ll never know
Why sparrows love the snow
We’ll turn off all of the lights
And set this ballroom aglow

So tell me darling
Do you wish we’d fall in love?
All the time
Time together
Is just never quiet 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?
We need 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

Time together
Is just never quite enough
When we’re apart
Whatever are you thinking of?
What will it take
To make or break this hint of love?
So tell me darling
Do you wish we’d fall in love?
All the time
