A coastal road at night
Leading to a Spanish Shipwreck
A constellation of lights
A flood of something so right
So right
Like stepping into a dream
And is this place here when we leave?
This once was an island
This once was an island
A pipeline under the ocean
A painted angel’s kisses
The wind outside the window
A desert under darkness
Like stepping into a dream
And is this place here when we leave?
This once was an island
This once was an island
The Snowflakes,1908
The team looks to the camera
The whistle of a train
Like a warm embrace
Shields her, makes her feel safe.
Like stepping into a dream
And is this place here when we leave?
This once was an island
This once was an island
