all my lovers surround me
like virgins cling to day
waist deep in the water
pushing my body away
oh what makes me go
to put the past away
oh how many drops can you squeeze out to explain
what happened one day

and one of them stayed behind
and trailed me from afar
i saw her eyes lit up
like colors in the dark
but when our faces met
i was half a world away
it still shortens my breathe
as i turned to stay

when we meet another way
you wont recognize my face
when we meet one way or another
you wont you wont speak up speak up speak up
when we meet one day
you wont recognize my face
when we meet one way or another
you wont speak up speak up speak up

and one day it suits me
the next it cleans me dry
it comes on like a life time
and passes through the morning light
how beautiful it was
to be anything at all
but somehow it strikes me
the timing came a bit off, off

when we meet another day
you wont recognize my face
when we meet one way or another
you wont you wont speak up speak up speak up
when we meet one way
you wont recognize my face
when we meet one way or another
you wont you wont speak up speak up speak up
you wont speak up speak up
you wont speak up speak up
you wont speak up speak up

    all my lovers surround me
    like virgins cling to day
    waist deep in the water
    pushing my body away
    oh what makes me go
    to put the past away
    oh how many drops can you squeeze out to explain
    what happened one day

    and one of them stayed behind
    and trailed me from afar
    i saw her eyes lit up
    like colors in the dark
    but when our faces met
    i was half a world away
    it still shortens my breathe
    as i turned to stay

    when we meet another way
    you wont recognize my face
    when we meet one way or another
    you wont you wont speak up speak up speak up
    when we meet one day
    you wont recognize my face
    when we meet one way or another
    you wont speak up speak up speak up

    and one day it suits me
    the next it cleans me dry
    it comes on like a life time
    and passes through the morning light
    how beautiful it was
    to be anything at all
    but somehow it strikes me
    the timing came a bit off, off

    when we meet another day
    you wont recognize my face
    when we meet one way or another
    you wont you wont speak up speak up speak up
    when we meet one way
    you wont recognize my face
    when we meet one way or another
    you wont you wont speak up speak up speak up
    you wont speak up speak up
    you wont speak up speak up
    you wont speak up speak up
