« Back to Lyrics

Singing your praises
I’m running out of faces
I was laughing not frowning
I was waving not drowning

Did you ever have your heart in a string
Did you ever really wonder at anything
Come and feel the rain wash the sea
Take a boat to the ocean please
Swim beneath it

Enormous feelings
They gather up the evenings
When we should’ve been dancing
While the city’s romancing

Did you ever feel the violence in love
Did you eve guard a bruise like a gift
Come and feel the rain wash the sea
Take a boat to the ocean please
Swim beneath it
Swim beneath it
Swim beneath it

I’m singing your praises
I’m running out of faces
In spirals like a dropped thing
We’re maritime waltzing
The maritime waltzing
