Sun Kil Moon – Ocean Breathes Salty lyrics

Your body may be gone, I'm going to carry you in
In my head, in my heart, in my soul
And maybe we'll get lucky and we'll both live again
Well, I don't know, I don't know, I don't think so

Well, that is that and this is this
You tell me what you want and I'll tell you what you get
You get away from me
Collected my belongings and I left the jail

Well, thanks for the time, I had to think a spell
I had to think a while
And the ocean breathes salty, wont you carry it in?
In you head, in your mouth, in your soul

And maybe we'll get lucky and we'll both grow old
Well, I don't know, I don't know, I hope so
Well, that is that and this is this
You tell me what you saw and I'll tell you what you missed

When the ocean left the sky
You missed when Time and Life shook hands and said goodbye
When the earth folded on itself
And said, "Good luck, I hope heaven and hell are really there"
I wouldn't hold my breath

You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?

And the ocean breathes salty, wont you carry it in?
In your head, in your mouth, in your soul
And the more we move ahead the more we're stuck in rewind
Well, I don't mind, I don't mind, how could I mind?

Well, that is that and this is this
You tell me what you want and I'll tell you what you get
You get away from me, well, that is that and this is this
You tell me what you saw and I'll tell you what you missed

When the ocean met the sky
You missed when Time and Life shook hands and said goodbye
When the earth folded in itself
And said, "Good luck, I hope heaven and hell are really there"
I wouldn't hold my breath

You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
