lyrics

Storms came when you were made beneath the flickering light. All my words went back to waves as my body sailed the night. The rain it pounded on the pane the wind it shook the floor. All my thoughts returned to water as you waited at my door.

Become a body, oh become a soul. Rest your weary head upon my shoulder. Into the night we dive beyond this shore. I give my hand to you to hold once more.

I know you’ve been here with me maybe once or twice before. It seems I’m seeing clearly as I open up the door. The storm is gone and all that’s left are rivers in the streets. I go downstairs to see the wreckage and feel you at my feet.

Become a body, oh become a soul. Rest your weary head upon my shoulder. Into the night we dive beyond this shore. I give my hand to you to hold once more.

There are times I do not see all that’s you and all that is me. In suspended time I become the sea and I feel the pulsing around me.

The water went back to the sea the sun came out to shine. All of this felt like a dream on a night too full of wine. But there were still reminders of what happened in the night. Shattered panes and fallen street lamps were left from a reuniting.

Become a body, oh become a soul. Rest your weary head upon my shoulder. Into the night we dive beyond this shore. I give my hand to you to hold once more.
