lyrics

ORDINARY THINGS

Talking you are with me
Talking ordinary things
are lifted up when I'm with you
days and nights through my mind
seems like every word I find
is picking me up when I'm with you

An old bedroom painted blue
two framed photos on a wire
rain that splashes on a stone
half window, half a view,
your half answer when I call
as near to heaven as I've known

This is the hour we're watching
another minute passing
A string of evenings every window is open wide.
Just like an ocean across my back
Just like an ocean down my neck
how would I spend my time with anybody else?

A stranger's dress orange-checked,
a purple shine in a pigeon's neck
a green-skinned lemon in a tree
a rattling train on its rails
tobacco underneath your nails
an afternoon watching the sea.

This is the hour we're watching
another minute passing
A string of mornings every front door is open wide.
Just like an ocean across my back
Just like an ocean down my neck
how would I spend my time with anybody else?
