Aaron Thompson – Houses In Water lyrics

You're back again
Where were you
In the summer?

I landed there
In Sausalito
Hoping to find you
But all I found there
Were houses in the water.

Oh President,
I want to believe you
So choose your words carefully.
The people have a face
Now it's you who must wear it
But it's heavy as a stone
Wouldn't you agree?

I'm a poor poet
Down on my knees.

Oh emptiness,
You come and you go
You show up at midnight
And you take off your clothes

But you were too proud
And your lips were too sure
Now you're a stranger
Knocking at my door

Like a widow after God's war.
