lyrics

Last night, in that hospital room
You took a sigh and locked eyes with the nurse across your bed
She said you're in luck my dear boy,
one more day and you'd be far away from us all

And take all the time,
you need to calm your mind
And I do know,
that the sirens will call but not show
When you're looking at the shore

Your parents took us to the coffee machine
We sat down in that bleak old dining room
The sliding doors, they opened up and they closed
You appeared and controlled your every move

And take all the time,
you need to calm your mind
And I do know,
that the sirens will call but not show,
when you're looking at the shore

Your face full of hurt and disdain
You threw a rock it made waves till the end of the stream
We slept all day slowly drifting away
In the car with your feet, curled up, next to mine
