Lyrics

i’ll be your wave carrying you to shore
and if your ribs are peaking through your fur
i’ll feed you some more
i rode out the city without you in my arms
under the moon glow I was a windblown cast-down carved out watermelon
without you in my arms
without you in my arms

and I’ve seen some great things
but I don’t wanna see anything if I can’t see you
kicked open in a coconut
could have shared it with anyone
but I wanted to share it with you

i’ll be your strings
if you pluck them, i’ll sing for you
and if your hands are feeling tender
i’ll take them in my own and make them better
i rose out of the water
i can hold my breath for only so long
i push past the breeze from the palm trees
i’m coming towards you
i’ve got to have you in my arms
i’m gonna have you in my arms

and I’ve seen some great things
but I don’t wanna see anything if I can’t see you
kicked open in a coconut
could have shared it with anyone
but I wanted to share it with you

you send me over in tender torture
and when it’s over it’s tender torture
