Seabear – Seashell lyrics

You're humming softly to yourself
You watch the words change for someone else
From an echo in a seashell
A drunken thought or a long farewell

And tonight I'll dive into your eyes
Will we feel like this for the rest of our lives?
Just a bird, tied to a stone
Do I really want this stone to be thrown?

Under the sea, black and deep
Everything I give is everything that I keep
So shake the leaves off this tree

And in the dark and blue light
I watched the bottle sail into the night
Carried you home, shaking like a leaf
You couldn't swim even though you lived by the sea

A flock of owls know your name
Will you promise me to stay the same?

Buried my hands in your cold sand
I looked up and saw the sun light up again
Night after night, follow you home
Night after night, I saw your footsteps in the snow

(Under the sea, black and deep) (5X)

Under the sea, black and deep

Everything I give is everything that I keep (12X)
