Underneath the stars that night, we found the place
We took of all our clothes and ran naked into the sea
The phosphorescence danced with us
The water washed us clean
So I hold on, to all these scenes, close

Cold and bathed in light, everything fell into place
And together we got lost, lost in something bigger than us
So I hold on, to all these scenes, close

To my heart inside that’s pumping blood
Through my veins and through my lungs
That breathe the air and spit it out
Past my teeth and out my mouth
Into these moments, full of life
Which radiate become the light
That illuminates when we die

Memories are all we need
As we fall into our final sleep
