We cruise high in the summer sky

I believe everything you say 'cause you're
Not frightened the way I've been so
So I follow you just in case you lose your way
So glad you let me stay around

The chain link fence you climbed to make
Forbidden lakes our own, yours and mine
And with ease of the sea gulls, we cut the engines
And we cruise high in the summer sky, baby

Now, I could speak to everything

But there's no room for my voice when sweet feedback
Is jumpin' through the hoop of your earring
There goes the phone and then you're off again
On what the caller brings you

So, I went and trashed myself at the bar
Confused for nothin', thinkin' you'd be there
I'm so embarrassed 'cause it's you who comes to
Take care of me, shamblin' home again with you to lead

And it's not the way I wanna go
And I'm mad at you and I'm mad at me
Talkin' endlessly, not a kind word to say

Till your amber beads of wisdom come
And I want to write 'em down
Just the way you said it, oh no

So I could keep it always, always

I can't forget the smell of summer trees at midnight
Bendin' backwards to please the wind
You touch the tattoo of the sun on a warm belly
That once carried a baby for a while

Then let that crackled leather jacket 'round you fold
Red face saints monogrammed in gold and in this
Beauty, I would not go any further 'cause I suddenly
Remembered, we can't live this way forever

Idle daylight, oh, I've never caught you in a lie
Not until now, I feel somehow
I felt the passin' of these days goin' by

What will you do when the feeling that you have is through?
I need to know 'cause I'll never stop hangin' on to you
And it's times like this that I dread when there's everything to say
And nothing left to be said, to be said and it makes me sad
