Where were you when I woke up? I was under water
Your room is dark and windowless, and always getting hotter
I look about, confirm my doubts, oh you are nowhere near me
How my heart dies with your goodbyes, and yet you keep it beating

So were you there, my only one?
Is that why I can still breathe?
No black of your hair, no blue of your eyes,
Yet you’re everywhere inside of me

But I can’t feel your skin in this ocean I’m in
What an anchor your absence has become
It has come to be your completion to me
And this half of me left just comes undone

Somewhere between all the miles and the sea,
Your voice whispers soft in my ear
I don’t understand and I reach for your hand,
Hear you say my love I’m still right here, right here.

Along through the blue, I see only you,
Though the sea creatures scare you so much
How safe you will be when you’re wrapped up with me,
How long have I ached for your touch

Regenerative are my bones and my skin,
My nerves are dismayed by intrusion
Yet if you are gone for short or for long
It all dies with no sought restitution

I am your belonging, it’s obvious and in plain view
Like your white collar bones and your beauty,
Everything that I am is for you

So look for me when you awake,
Cross the miles and the sky and the sea,
And when my eyes open, you will be there,
You’re everywhere and everything to me.
