I see you as a kid on sandy streets
Where your heart like a mountain grew
With the snows of your youth burning under your eyes
And the light of your love still new
Did you make all the boys cry deep and long?
Did you tremble with ecstasy?
You were tested and tried like a witless bride
Long before you would ever meet me, sweet girl
Long before you would ever meet me

I see you in a house by the copper sea
Holding fast to the life that you choose
With your bloodlines etched like a drawing in the sand
Spreading out from beneath your shoes
And your bed is made, and your kitchen is clean
And your spirit sits comfortably
And you never even think of what it might be like
On this bright foreign stage with me, sweet girl
On this bright foreign stage with me

I left your room and I walked the streets
Met a drunk whose eyes were blue
I fell into sleep and dreamed you didn’t love me
When I woke up, it was still true
But I would wait on you on your sandy streets
I would wait on you by the sea
Though I may be a fool to wait on you
When you don’t feel a thing for me, sweet girl
When you don’t feel a thing for me
Oh, you don’t feel a thing for me, sweet girl
No, not anything for me
