lyrics

I’m here face-down in the ocean
so, thought I’d phone now just to let you know
in case I should drown in the red-light glow

an Old Sin frown, a wide net thrown
take of the flesh but leave your own
or soak in doubts and Secret Notes

so do I die slow or outlive my bones
if I sold my soul to a slogan
so when the news comes out, it’s above the fold?

and I can’t feel my toes
‘cause my feet are both freezing cold
but each night I stood firm in the frost
but I found you, didn’t I?
see, I still fear the throes
of a 40-year fight to know
if I’d been worth the work all along
but I found you, didn’t I?

we built our house where the phones wouldn’t work
with great big books full of four-letter words
and we’d read, and we’d share what we saw
and we’d miss everyone but be glad that they’re gone
and we’d check each day to compare what they’d done
and we’d keep eyes peeled, hoping one of them calls
but we build our house where the phones wouldn’t work
so we scream our fears in some vague metaphor, so… you know…

and we still sing along
everybody knows this old song
but each time, those old words leave you lost
until I find you, teary eyed.
I still keep my throne
if it looks a bit like a yoke,
at least I’m not alone anymore
‘cause I found you, didn’t I?
