I wait til I’m alone
And I’m slow to go back in
But you can’t run off to Spain
If you don’t know how to swim
My saddle’s full of salt
And though my chest will rise and fall
I had another swig
But I couldn’t drink it all
Going into the sun
I‘ll lower my head into the shade
The trees have been exposed
Since the dunes have blown away
We’ll ride out to that oak
And then we’ll shelter on the sound
Until the water drags us out
And well, that’s sooner than later
Ghost is full of splinters
Feel it leak into the tent
A thousand raining days
And the ground is gonna thin
Tie it all up with boasts
And then we’ll rub so it won’t scar
Oh, your eyes are so plain
It’s so hard to explain, girl!
Kneel into the water
If you think you’re gonna fall
Babe the coast is gonna bleed
And here we’re three feet from the shore
The gulf is boiling over
And them gusts is growing wild
This is just how we’re gonna be found
And, well…
That’s sooner than later
Sooner than later
