lyrics

come find me
in the sun pool, silhouette of a boy
wash our bodies in the silver light
i'll sing sad songs, you'll tread swirling waves
you know
how to float, i dont, i'll sink like a stone
shifting patterns in saltwater
silhouette of a boy, it was only ever you.

it was sunset in wisconsin, and sunrise in north dakota
i will trace your footsteps backwards, find some pine trees, then some winter
and i hope the east might bring you, something wild or quiet adventure
and in the pink and purple morning you'll catch some thought that keeps forever

thoughts turn to springtime
and the shifting of light
silhouette of a boy
sunbeams pouring through lace curtains
morning sun adorns grass crowns of dew drop stars
it's gentle
like the blossoming pastels and petals we tread
secret patterns, quiet rapture
silhouette of a boy, it was only ever you.

orange glow against black water, feel these city winds cut through me
and this beach is dark and empty, and my feet are soaked and freezing
oh the infinite potential of each moment to completely
shift the course of all your current thought
or change your life entirely

so you built that wooden house,
painted it blue, filled it with laughter
and with maps, stained glass and shifting light
your endless dance with colour
but if true love's on the open road and if
strength's too hard to capture
you won't stop, you won'r find quiet
until you're finally back together

in the distance drums and thunder, stormclouds dance on the horizon
leaves twist patterns in november air
and freight trains low will rattle by
the windows shake, the walls will sway and
your knees will your fault and buckle
but there's a path that you must follow
there is a path that you must follow.
