Oh, January, keep a secret for me
Only Poseidon knows what I've seen
If you ask me, she was never there
Beata, how is it?
I carry you everywhere
Everywhere

Heavy hands, she moved
Slowly, steadily
Pale legs straddling the sea
Aboard a floating savior
What does language mean?

It was a proper Polish welcome
A proper Polish welcome

A shift of the table, a slip of the tongue
Silence and then a muffled, "Oh my God"
I was the first to laugh, she followed suit
Rocking and holy, we came two by two
We came two by two

Heavy hands, she moved
Slowly, steadily
Pale legs straddling the sea
Aboard a floating savior
What does country mean?

It was a proper Polish welcome
A proper Polish welcome

I wish I was the sea
I wish I was the sea
She was straddling the sea
I wish I was the sea

Heavy hands, she moved
Slowly, steadily
Pale legs straddling the sea
Aboard a floating savior
What does language mean?

It was a proper Polish welcome
A proper Polish welcome

    General CommentI have 2 possible theories on this one. One is it's about her birth mother who was perhaps polish? Another one is it's about a polish chick she had a one night stand with. Either one works. maybe it's about both.

    General CommentI read that she said to one source it was a sort of retelling of noah's ark, but to another source she said it was about falling in love at first sight with someone you know you're never going to see again. Which both are a lot more complex than how I interpreted it- I thought it was about her going down on a girl
