lyrics

she calls me nervous
i call her blind
she calls me burnin’
angel fire, angel sigh
she calls me traveler
never lingering, nowhere to call home
she calls me turning
planet
map on my wall pinned with places left to go

and it scares me half to death
laughter on her breath
painted pink and yellow in the sunset
and it’s raining, just a little

there’s a beach in south lantau
where the waves lap soft as my hand on yours
where rabbits sleep in the moon
and i can be with you

she calls me nicknames
and it’s funny, i’ve never wanted one before
she calls me artist
but i’ll never paint a picture like the ones she describes to me,
she calls me noah
i build her boats when it’s raining, and the typhoon floods the forests,
she calls me nothing,
grey smoke and i can’t hear her over the wind and the crying and black water

and it scares me half to death
ruin on her breath
painted blue and silver in the moonlight
and it’s raining, just a little

there’s a beach in south lantau
where the waves crash hard as my lips bleeding into yours,
where rabbits sleep in the moon
and i can be with you

i remember lying
in a children’s playground
looking up at the clouds
pretending the stars are out

secrets on both of our tongues
the night is still so young
we are both so young
we were both so young

and it scares me half to death
sweetness on her breath
painted white and orange in the sunrise
and it’s raining, just a little

there’s a beach in south lantau
where the waves brush against the shore, and everyone is smiling,
where rabbits sleep in the moon
and i can be with you

there’s a beach in south lantau
where the waves lap soft as my lips into yours,
where rabbits sleep in the moon
and i’m up there with you
