lyrics

Under the lamp in the balmy night,
I held on I felt it,
Words I heard let me feel the light,
A night so young and new.
Stones and sand under my feet,
They were hot like summers ago,
We knew we could not see.

Hear the sea from your bed,
A life I knew so well,
Words like waves washing through my head,
You seem so close somehow.
Fetch her from her little room,
The heart of the house,
She's in looking out,
Knowing winter comes too soon,
We're out in the sun.

Beauty and chaos came past by chance,
A lift in my life,
I was lost in his arms while others dance,
We were sat on a wall by a sky of blue.
Stones and sand under my feet,
They were hot like summers ago,
We knew we could not see.

Hear the sea from your bed,
A life I knew so well,
Words like waves washing through my head,
You seem so close somehow.
Fetch her from her little room,
The heart of the house,
She's in looking out,
Knowing winter comes too soon,
We're out in the sun.

Stones and sand under my feet,
They were hot like summers ago,
We knew we could not see.
But still we went blind, bold, strong and kind
Still we went blind, bold, strong and kind
Still we went blind, bold, strong and kind
Still we went blind, bold, strong and kind.
