When the moon dissolves into the sky
Like the shine in your dilated eye
Miles from me sobriety stands
With a hammer in his hand
And we roll down the street like a pair of coins
That fell from the place where your jeans are torn
And you smile at me with your wine-stained teeth and say
Let's take the train
To a quiet place I know where we can be alone
Where the shore meets the sea meets the sun
And although we should be tired
The day has just begun
Well the train doors close and we collapse
As my head sinks down onto your lap
And we're talking about nothing just to keep
From falling asleep
Well the ringing in my mind is amplified
From the music of the night and that stuff we tried
But retreating is the feeling
Like the tide that's no longer high
Just three stops to go
Till we're out on the road
Where the shore meets the sea meets the sun
And although we're winding down it's clear
The day is young
Well we stare at the sun and talk about
How long it will be until it burns out
When its fire retires will be
Be around to see
For all we know it could be that day
And if it is I hope its final ray
Kisses your eyelids before we are shown to the door
Lay your head down in my hands
Among the diamonds in the sand
Where the shore meets the sea meets the sun
And we drift into dream
The day carries on
