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 stars, that aren't there anymore
I was feeling the night grow old
And you were looking so cold
So like an introvert
I drew my over shirt
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 isn't 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?
Only time, only time

Can you believe that the crew has gone
And wouldn't let me sign on?
All my islands have sunk
In the deep,
And I can hardly relax or even oversleep
But I feel more with your hand
In mine
When we walk on the shore line
I guess we'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?
(Yeah all the time) all the time
Time together isn't 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?
Only 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 isn't 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,
All the time
