I thought they were kissing,
but they were biting
Parrots in the tropical trees
Well they don't have lips like you or I,
so what do you say we kiss?

There's parrots in the tropical trees
and the ocean, the ocean
breeze

The giraffe stretches out his long neck
to the leaves it has not reached yet
and I am no giraffe
that's why I swing in a hammock

And there's parrots in the tropical trees
and the ocean, the ocean
breeze

I was okay when I first moved away
and now I'm in too deep
I wear my pain
like a lion wears his mane
I wish you were here with me

And there's parrots in the tropical trees
and the ocean, the ocean
breeze

The waves that crash
are scary but inviting
The waves that crash
are scary but inviting
The seagulls are larger than usual

Tidal wave
What gives you the entitlement to wash me away?
That's my love in the flood
This is how long my love lives on

Tidal wave
What gives you the entitlement to wash me away?
That's my love in the flood
This is how long I can hold on

I thought they were kissing,
but they were biting
Parrots in the tropical trees

I have lost somebody
I have lost somebody too
There's always a storm ready
to wash away everything you knew
This is how long my love lives on
