(Finn)
You weightless astronaut
You sunset diving bird
You cool wind set upon the branches of a tree
You holding my attention
You are my first impression
And I can recognise the life that I've been given
One day they will discover you
Low cloud moving cross the sky
One day they will uncover you
Young girl wash the sleep out of your eyes
Dust on my piano
Wool rest never sleeping
All your best one-liners borrowed from a film
The thing that gets to me
is how you're never free
and how the spirit yearns
Your body is a prison
One day they will discover you
Low cloud moving cross the sky
One day they will uncover you...
The thing that gets to me
is how you're never free
and how the spirit yearns
Your body is a prison
Bright as her eyes wide in the night
Why can't you see me?
Come with the wind, time to begin
There'll be no compromise
When all you want is wrapped around you
As those saints preserve us when we're dying
To pick us up from where we're lying
One day they will discover you
One day they will uncover you
Bright as her eyes wide in the night
They will discover you
They will discover you...
