remember how we used to talk like swallows in an unborn child's throat when you told me the warm sea would shield me and drown my enemies in salt like a friend I met just a second ago
I know I am going to love him - how can I already know?

Please don't give me no trouble because I'm pulled back like a mouse trap pin
Seems I always come so unprepared for these challenges I have to face - now every face I pass is a fight and their eyes are jutting rock
So I need to be brave as I crawl out to sea all by myself and that's insane
But my friends will keep me afloat
Where fear try and pull me in
Mm-hm, yeah - the fear can drag you down
But your friends will help you out
Get back up on your feet my friend

Oh, how we used to daydream in the valleys where giraffe-neck trees grew
When we went to high school
Yeah, we learned a lot
How to become what we are not
And I watched this bridge here just disappear - yeah, your parents can't carry you no more
By by by, by now you will fear no one
By by by, by now your faith will be restored like a friend I met just a second ago

Like a friend I met just a second ago
Everyone is thinking too much
And we laugh at ourselves and I think I'm wrong but I never really know
