Clouds across your sleeping face

Where do we go when we escape

Well there are lots of things that no one knows



And all I said was “damn this is frightening”

And all I did was think about everything



Weeds grow around your clock face

They hold your hands like distant friends

And in the depths of caverns turn the cogs of the Earth



(Chorus)



Behind these eyes is a field in an open sky

Where your mother lies with your father inside her arms

You are the air in the words in between her hair

At the same time you’re the sunset that leaves the night



(Backing vocals) Give up your quiet crusades

Let sleepy hearts find you




Clouds across your sleeping face

They watch the Earth settle on your skin

And from the sprouts of fingertips the world starts again



And all it reads is here lies the dust and sand

And all I did was sleep with clouds in my head

We’re all in this tonight
