Carved from the jaw of a whale
Cold white warm violin in your arms
Hang notes in my hard linen sails
Push me back through the eye of a needle

Here's to the girl with the flowers at her neck
One for the girl with the red dress and wide eyes

Bring me a gun in the night
Place it gently at my waiting temple
Click for the deafening light
Push me back through the eye of a needle

Here's to the girl with the flowers in her hair
Here's to the girl with the incremental eyes
One for the girl with the cold and the kleenex

Back from the water's edge

Sit in our perfect blue space
Deep down under the water beneath us
Everything fades to your face
Fish swarm by in the beautiful silent

Here's to the girl with the flowers on her lips
Here's to the girl with the devil in her hips
One for the girl with the blue coat and suede shoes

Carved from the jaw of a whale
Back from the water's edge
