We'll push these clocks until they break up in our hands (our hands our careful hands)
Airmail our mating rhythms all around the world (around the world around)
Sometimes we'll hear them beat out against our will
But oh, oh, oh
Even your bones are calling so

We'll flow and shift and simmer, snakes across the sand (the sea and wind and sand)
My nerves are calling your nerves holding out my hand (my hands my careful hands)
Long distance, long time coming, sail against the tide

But oh, oh, oh
Even your bones are calling so
Who am I to tear myself in half?
And oh, oh, oh
Don't you say I told you so -
Who are you to point out small print now?

Promises are made and broken
Deeds are done in place and time
Here are we all things unspoken
Filling up your eyes with mine

Promises are made and broken
Deeds are done in place and time
Here are we all things unspoken
Filling up your eyes with mine

Oh, oh, oh
Even your bones are calling so
Who am I to tear myself in half?

Dark eyes under dark hair hide darker thoughts than these (dark eyes and careful hands)
Name the names and I just can't turn away

Promises are made and broken
Deeds are done in place and time
Here are we all things unspoken
Filling up your eyes with mine

Promises are made and broken
Deeds are done in place and time
Here are we all things unspoken
Filling up your eyes with mine

Promises are made and broken
Deeds are done in place and time
Here are we all things unspoken
Filling up your eyes with mine

Promises are made and broken
Deeds are done in place and time...
