Questions ebb and flow
But love is not the goal
It’s loneliness we seek
To distance in our sleep
No sense that we should start
But oceans never part
We’re lost inside the waves
That break inside the heart
It’s true I have no plan
But what love can withstand
The unforgiving blade
Of every promise made

Does there have to be a reason
No love falls out of season
Here’s where I should falter
But I need to have the answer
It’s too late to retrieve
The words that I let leave
In the letter to your lips
Through my fingertips
And so for just one day
The soul is not contained
The heart unravelling
The world is wide again

So the ebb and flow
The lonely undertow
Two seconds of the heart
Illuminate the dark
Tracing every line
With your eyes on mine
It's easy to forget
Nothing happened yet
Now you open up
You offer me your cup
The taste is lingering
The taste is lingering
Days and days roll by
The night left high and dry
I watch it all unfold
Because you're not here to hold
