lyrics

The Oxford comma had fallen out of style
By the first time we kissed
Above the dance
We put it back
We put it back

I left you two encrypted notes
You left my picture
Unattended for a year
And then you gave it back
You gave it back

And I saw my eyes reflected in yours
Both in that night
And all the nights to follow
Lying on the floor

Tonight I’ll dress all kissed by fire
And we’ll make lemon drinks with clouds of ice
They’ll all look twice
At me in gray
And you in black

We’ll change the way the story ends
Beside the elevator’s lights
We’ll kiss the canon
And then put it back
We’ll put it back

And I’ll see my eyes reflected in yours
Both in that night
And all the nights to follow
Lying on the floor

And my liquid u is your favourite thing
As you approach me with fervour and savour
The sand that we kick in the face of fate
As hand in hand we endeavour and ever

I promised you we’d sail a boat
You say our ship will come in
By next year
We shouldn’t fear
The words we’re writing down

You hold the rope, I’ll hold the wall
You frame the shots, I’ll write the rhymes
We’ll fill the gallery
Then send them back
Send them all back

And I’ll see my eyes reflected in yours
Both in that night
And all the nights to follow
Lying on the floor
