I have a heart that's torn between two oceans
Please don't confuse me with the sea
In the flicker of an eyelash and a nap
I'm off to Germany

The folds of the time that we never spend
Wrap around me like an illness
And now I have a contentment in me
A small death likened to stillness

And I am alive
And this is not contrived
It's just how I feel about you
And you and you...

A calm and fickle breeze blows through
Sand rolling between the toes of strangers
The laughter and the tearing eyes
Aware but uncaring of the dangers

Words thrown out and cast back slow
Testing the bridges and waters clear
Faces lovely, too fleeting to hold
See them truly, void of fear

And I am alive
And this is not contrived
It's just how I feel about you
And you and you...

The heart collides in small bursts of sparks
And holds true sometimes to false
But you're nothing if you don't feel this
You'd barely have a pulse

And so I continue on my merry way,
A gypsy twisting with imaginary lovers
Together with so many in the tides of day
Alone beneath the covers

But I am alive
And this is not contrived
It is just how I am feeling about you
And you and you and you

It is just how I feel about you
And you and you and you

And you
