the water lyrics – feist

the telegraph cables hum
and few can decipher who the message is from
and it deliver it quietly
cause some don’t get much company

the harbour becomes the sea
and lighting the house keeps it collision free
understand the lay of the land
and don’t let it hurt you
or it will be the first to

the water, the water
didn’t realize
it’s dangerous size
the mountain, the mountain
came to recognize
it’s a steep and rocky sides
more than realized

pale as a pile of bones
you hope for your babies
and this is how they grow
wind-battered, knocked over
the teeth by the shoulder
watching the grey sky
that’s acting like a good guy

the water, the water
came to realize
it’s a dangerous size
the mountain the mountain
came to recognize
it’s steep and rocky sides
came to recognize
it’s steep and rocky sides
more than realized
