The Saltwater Room
oleh: Owl City



I opened my eyes last night and saw you in the low lightWalking down by the bay, on the shore, staring up at the planes that arent there anymoreI was feeling the night grow old and you were looking so coldLike an introvert, I drew my over shirtAround my arms and began to shiver violently beforeYou happened to look and see the tunnels all around meRunning into the dark undergroundAll the subways around create a great soundTo my motion fatigue: farewellWith your ear to a seashellYou can hear the waves in underwater cavesAs if you actually were inside a saltwater room
Time together is just never quite enoughWhen you and I are alone, Ive never felt so at homeWhat will it take to make or break this hint of love?We need time, only timeWhen were apart whatever are you thinking of?If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?So tell me darling, do you wish wed fall in love?All the time, all the time
Can you believe that the crew has gone and wouldnt let me sign on?All my islands have sunk in the deep, so I can hardly relax or even oversleepI feel as if I were home some nights when we count all the ship lightsI guess Ill never know why sparrows love the snowWell turn off all of the lights and set this ballroom aglow
