Salt from sweat cuts the land from sea
It separates you and it separates me
An alarm goes off rising from my bed
I was talking to you, you were in my...

Drinking coffee from my cup
I was feeling so down now I'm looking up
Now cars will crash and babies cry
But when you look up we're seeing the same sky
We're seeing the same sky

Got on the morning train
Made my way into the crowd
And all along the way
I was reminded that it's not the same without you

This is an S.O.S.
Can you hear me?

Salt from sweat cuts the land from sea
And it brings me to you and it brings you to me
A radio plays and it's all the same
Like everyday until you...

Another song, another key
And the photograph that you took for me
And the mail came and I got a note
Saying S.O.S., that was all you wrote
That was all you wrote

Got on the morning train
Made my way into the crowd
And all along the way
I was reminded that it's not the same without you

This is an S.O.S.
Can you hear me?

    General CommentI really like this song.
    I get the impression that it is somebody looking back on a relationship that failed for whatever reason (possibly the other person's death), and the singer looking back on all the times they reached out for each other after the separation.
