I need you like morning
Like dimes in my pocket
I'll take you with you sunrise
I'll take you any old time
I need you like evening
Like the bill I owed last week
Like the sound of the city
Like sleep
Like time

There's no use for me now
I've figured it out
I'm a sailor ashore with no boat to sail out
Onto the world to see all the pearls and planets and things
The ocean doesn't sing without you
But oh how it does how it does

With you the edge of a mountain
That free falling feelin'
That hurt with the healin'
The way my name sounds coming from
Your lips is the best thing
I ever been called
I'm quietly enthralled
The way you move me, it's paralyzing

There's no use for me now
I've figured it out
I'm a sailor ashore with no boat to sail out
Onto the world to see all the pearls and planets and things
What does anything mean without you?
But oh what it does what it does

And then somebody knows
Somebody holds
Somebody wraps me up and folds me out
You draw out of me things
Out from the deep that I've never seen
Not sure of anything other then the way
You break me
Build me
Pour me out and fill me up
No other one I love

'Cause without you
without you
I'm sliding out of tune
There's too much space in every room
Without you no reason to dine when it's just plastic wine
Without you nothing to tell the time
Words hardly have use
But oh how they do
How they do

There's no use for me now
I've figured it out
I'm a sailor ashore with no boat to sail out
Onto the world to see all the pearls and planets and things
What does anything mean without you?
But oh what it does
What it does
With you
