LyricsEdit

(We'll just try that again.)
The sun was coming up, and our friend was sound asleep
But we saw through the window that the water ran so deep
That you couldn't make out the ocean floor
Then I saw you in the light
I couldn't take it any more

Give me your hand
Give me everything you've got
And the light from window will fall on us burning hot 
Just like a torch

The air was humid; I will not forget
When we stepped outside, I hear your footsteps
Now in my mind, it's a soft sound
Almost imperceptible against the giving ground

Let me kiss your eyelids with my lips
Let me feel the heat coming off your fingertips
Just like a torch
