the sea in between lyrics – we were evergreen

the road is leading out to sea,
to the place where i saw,
saw you diving into green
and through the darkened glow,
through the darkened glow…

and i am covered up in holes
that feast on my soul
and everything before,
can you remember it all,
can you remember it all?

so i’ll wait for you to come flying
and i’ll wait for that explosion in the sky

and i’ll watch the pieces of you burning like stars
and i will shout so they will know who you are

the golden sparks on the horizon
i thought that i saw
something float over the ocean
and heading out to you,
heading out to you…

this spout of water’s gone dry
and what is evil, what is good?
i like it best when you lie,
i think that i should,
i think that i should…

so i’ll wait for you to come flying
and i’ll wait for that explosion in the sky

and i’ll watch the pieces of you burning like stars
and i will shout so they will know who you are

these years have gone in a daze,
i try to seize them like a dream
but i can figure out your face
for the sea in between,
the sea in between…

it’s so dark i can’t see your face smiling back at me,
in the eyes of the sea that’s been eating at my memory

so i’ll wait for you to come flying
and i’ll wait for that explosion in the sky

i’ll watch the pieces of you burning like flames,
and i will shout so no one forgets your name.

it’s a long way home,
it’s a long way home.

la-la, la-la, la-la la la-la.

it’s so dark, i can’t see your face smiling back at me
in the eyes of the sea that’s been eating at my memory

it’s old after all, the stories that you told
but we know it’s okay, just carry on that way.

but we know it’s okay,
i just hope you’ll get this message someday
