Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Well this is just a simple song
To say what you've done
I told you about all those fears
And away they did run

You sure must be strong
When you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun


When I was just nine-years-old
I swear that I dreamt
Your face on a football field
And a kiss that I kept
Under my vest
Apart from everything, in the heart in my chest


I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough, complete like a stone
Could be there’s nothing else in our lives, so critical
As this little hole


My life in an upturned boat
Marooned on a cliff
You brought me a great big flood
And you gave me a lift

Girl, what a gift
You tell me with your tongue
And your breath was in my lungs
And we float up through the rift


I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
Don't go thinking you gotta be tough, complete like a stone
Could be there's nothing else in our lives, so critical
As these little holes

Well this would be a simple song
To say what you've done
I told you about all those fears
And away they did run
You sure must be strong
When you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun

Remember walking a mile to your house
A glow in the dark
I made a fumbling play for your heart
And the act struck a spark
You wore a charm on the chain that I stole
Especial for you

Love's such a delicate thing that we do
With nothing to prove
Which I never knew
