lyrics

What did I do
To deserve you?
How did I land
with you on these sands?
Shall we go swim in the Indian sea?

How do I explain,
it's worse than a dream.
I find myself tied
with you by my side.
Shall we go beg on a merciless street,
And get fed more than we could ever eat.

I think I know what you are.
You're the closest I will get to a star.
I hope your mother knows,
I'd be proud if I gave birth to one of those.

Where are we now?
Don't shake your head.
This is your life
Though it feels like you're dead
when you are stood on the top of the world.

Oh to be
A swallow with thee,
Oh to be wolves
Wild and free.
Shall we dance where the sun never sets?
Who needs to know which way is west.
When I will always know which way is best.

I think I knows what you is.
You're the closest I will get to an Angel.
i hope your father knows
I'd be proud if I conceived of those.
