lyrics

"At home, looking out the window,
I saw your shadow growing bored.
I wrote you a song yesterday,
but indecision twisted the right chords.

They tell me I'm bad at writing love songs.
I fly too close to the sun,
but lucky for me and lucky for you
this song just isn't one.

Here I am.
Here I am.
Here I am with empty hands.
The world is an ocean that's drifting ashore.
The world is an ocean and I am nothing more.

There's an old man asleep in my head.
He reads to me and tells me his tales
and though he's forgotten and feels sometimes alone
he raises a thought and sets his sails.

We leave for an undiscovered ocean
and dock on an island in the bay.
At peace in the trees, alone with our thoughts,
I would die to live another day.

Here I am.
Here I am.
Here I am with empty hands.
The world is an ocean that's drifting ashore.
The world is an ocean and I am nothing more.
