lyrics

when you chase for novelty
prep a page for tragedy
lens flare of a city night
freight train coming on your right
at speed with her on your arm
she blooms under all your charms
as you glide try not to think
of the ice underneath your feet

salt of tears
painted dawn
bitter tea
you’ll carry on
take a run
get some sleep
she's the memory you keep

to a song you seemed to know
love rose like a sourdough
a loom was soon entwined
she’d call late and you didn’t mind
the days got short and cold
twilight by the time you're home
her note flapping on your door
your love has flown its course

salt of tears
painted dawn
bitter tea
you’ll carry on
take a run
get some sleep
she's the memory you keep

at lakeside under a roiling sky
your bodies blurring in the night
you'll love her until the day you die

far away the crying's done
pale shore under whitewash sun
dip your toes in the cloudy bay
too cold to swim today
phone streaked with salt and sand
her name that you tap to send
not sure you can take what's next
as you wait for her to text
