lyrics

The Air

Stop prattling at me, you beautiful fool
Can’t you follow the rules?
I told you to go away
Okay, you can stay on my little boat
Your skin has a glow
Your lips are perfectly glazed

Standing on the deck I check your face, half hidden by your hair
Every time I do I’m just amazed you’re still there
I’d have thought by now you’d drop your gaze from my crazy stare

Let’s loosen the ropes and get underway
If you’re gonna stay
We may as well get going soon
Hold onto yourself ‘cause here come the waves
There’s nothing to save us
And you seem intent on your own ruin

Let’s sail into the morning’s golden room, the light’s like glue
Everything we had and everything we thought we knew
Everything is whirlpooling away, I guess we’re free

Standing on the deck I check your face, half hidden by your hair
Every time I do I’m just amazed you’re still there
Standing in the breeze we feel the rain falling through the air
