"Bed Across the Sea" as written by and Jesca Hoop....
LA is hot as fuck
And Manchester is about to freeze
You’re on your way to the mail
To get a letter from me

And as of our seperation
at the Ancienne Belgique
I rock you everynight
In a bed across the sea

Words are all we have for touch
They are our fingers
And I love our words so much
Write your lips to kiss me now
And I can taste you as I read your words out loud

You rise and start your day
With toast and black tea
While I’m in the still of night and pushing back sleep
and I ride the hands of the clock
‘til they fall upon three
And drop me in our virtual garden for elevenses

Words are all we have for touch
they are our fingers and I love our words so much
and write your hands between my legs
and I can feel you as the words jump from the page

The sky is bruised
it’s a lusty dusk
with lovers rouge
wet with sap and musk
under you
under dream spell dust under you
and its true
and I know that I must
and with you
I immediately trust
And it’s so
That I fell at first blush

And it’s snowing in Australia

Just now your letter came
and the pages did say
that you’ll fly from your home to mine
on January 8th
and just now I find that I can just barely wait
and from now until that time
im counting down the days

Words are all we have for touch
they are our fingers and I love our words so much
and write yourself inside me now
and I can feel you as the words come pouring out
words are all we have for touch
they are our fingers and I love our words so much
write your dreams out line by line
and I will stitch them in this heart of mine

It’s me
I’m in Australia

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are completely wrong

    The opening lines are

    "LA is hot as fuck
    and Manchester's about to freeze
    you're on your way to the mail
    to get a letter from me
    and as of our separation at the ancient bell she ?
    curl up your every night in a bed across the sea

    words are
    all we have
    for touch
    they are our fingers
    and i love our words so much
    and write
    your lips to kiss me now
    and i can taste you as i read
    your words out loud

    you rise and start your day with toast and black tea
    while i'm in the still of night and pushing back sleep
    and i'll write the hands of the clock 'til they fall up on 3
    and drop me in your virtual garden for eleven seas

    words are
    all we have
    for touch
    they are our fingers
    and i love our words so much
    and write your
    hands between my legs
    and i can feel you as the words
    jump from the page

    the sky is bruised
    it's a lusty dusk
    of the lovers' rouge
    wet with sap and musk
    under you
    under dreams spell dusk
    and it's true
    and i know that i must
    and with you
    i immediately trust
    and it's so that i fell at first blush

    and it's snowing in australia

    just now your letter came
    and the pages did say
    that you'll fly from your home to mine
    on january 8th
    and just now i find that i can just barely wait
    and from now until that time i'm counting down the days

    words are
    all we have
    for touch
    they are our fingers
    and i love our words so much
    and write yourself inside me now
    and i can feel you as the words come pouring out

    and words are
    all we have
    for touch
    they are our fingers
    and i love our words so much
    and write your dreams out line by line
    and i will stitch them in this heart of mine

    i'm in australia"

    not sure how these are so misunderstood.

    The song seems to be about a long distant relationship.
