At the Seal Rock Hotel
me and my girl havin' a bad spell
I go to the Cliff House every night
walk to Judah street along the oceanside

and as the ocean breaks against the seal rocks
oh how my heart aches
and as the ocean breaks when I play guitar at night
god how my hands shake

at the Seal Rock Hotel swimming pool
feelin' adrift, feelin' a fool
sit around fingerfuckin' my phone
smell the sea salt, and I go off again alone
I eat my dinner at Thanh Long
garlic noodles and cashew prawns
shrimp dumplings and drunken crab
oh how I wanna make it up with you so bad

and as the ocean breaks against the seal rocks
oh how my heart aches
and as the ocean breaks I go to call you and
god how my hands shake
and god how my hands shake

oh the the loneliest sound it makes
when the wild water breaks
I wanna call you Emily
but I don't know how long it will be

at the Seal Rock Hotel lobby
met up with my photographer friend, Nyree
we headed down to the Sutro Baths
she snapped my picture and we had a few laughs

and as the ocean breaks white water
against the seal rocks my heart aches
and as the ocean breaks white water
against the seal rocks my heart aches
and as I head off one more time to bed alone I know it's time to call home
it's time to call home

oh the loneliest sound it makes
when the wild water breaks
I wanna come home, Emily
