lyrics

FLOATING

To the bodega for coffee and bread
Just up the street I happened to meet
A lord of creation come down from the sky
And as she passed she smiled and said hi

Floating, o floating
I swear I'm not high
Floating, o floating
Like the sea meets the sky

Come on now darling don't just stand by
You know there’s trouble when I call at half past nine
Sea birds will wheel above us, whales will sing below
Floating like for always, like always unknown

Floating, o floating
I swear I'm not high
Floating, o floating
Like the sea meets the sky

Come on now darling, don't just stand by
Whales sing below us, above the sea birds cry
Beyond our symbols, our ancestors bones
Beyond our science, their horizon goes unknown

Floating, o floating
Sea meets sky, sea meets sky
Come on, come on darling
All newborn and blind
