lyrics

Golden maroon stains on my hand
Pulp in my teeth and on my chin
Strips of the peel sweeten the air
Through the trees the sun is playing in your hair

You lay your head down upon my chest
And hum a tune underneath your breath
Though I never heard that song,
I did my best to sing along

I put your picture on a postcard
and I sent it to myself
That ink stamp was a gambling man
with an obvious tell
I know I'm going somewhere I don't want to go alone
So let's take the long way home

Daylight fades like the flame of a match
Under the moon, we make each other laugh
With your body held so close to mine
I can feel your heartbeat keeping time

I sit behind you on the piano bench
And we move as the tune intends
And I whisper in your ear
And all the world disappears

I put your picture on a postcard
and I sent it to myself
That ink stamp was a gambling man
with an obvious tell
I know I'm going somewhere I don't want to go alone
So let's take the long way home

Sing to me, sing
That one where everything begins
We'll strip off all our radio wire
And we'll sing moonlight hymns
