Superchunk – Watery Hands lyrics

When you leave this coast
Take me with you
Cause I can't live without TOAST
She's too much like you
She's building piramids in waterskis
But we both know that I've got bad knees
Some tricks I won't do
So I'm swimming back to you

Soaking wet
The fully intercoastal but I still can't forget
Your farewell toast to OUR TIME (we really need a light in this part)

On the beach if I at least
You droped that girl
You droped me
Now my flag flies blue
So I'm swimming back to you

You're made of water
I'm made of sand
Don't grit your teeth
Just let me kiss your
Watery hands

Stop washing me away
