Are you adrift?
Are you hands at ten and two?
Are you the spinning wheel as it starts to reel?

Or the tall ship on a summer lawn?
The tiller yaws the ripple moving blade to blade
Makes a figure eight

Only, only time, only time will tell
If you're the sea itself
Or an echoing shell

Do you ever live?
Do you ever live?
Do you ever live?

Are you someone else?
Are you someone else or is someone else you?
Oh what can you do

If you're the only passenger?
You've come from where you're coming to
But there may be an unraveling seam

Wake up low-angle sun
Ivy runners have begun to climb the starboard walls
And they start to call

Do you ever live?
Do you ever live?
Do you ever live?

Only, only love, only love will show us where we have to go
Set off into the vale
Make your way into the trail of intersecting shoots
One of which is you

Do you ever live?
Do you ever live?
Do you ever live?
Do you ever live?
Do you ever live?
