When the birds are sleeping
That's when the trees sing
You left your winter clothes
And your teeth marks in my skin

So shake the leaves off the trees
Watch them float down the stream
Your son, your daughter
Swimming in the water

I miss you
Even when you're around
A black cloud
Sending lightning to the ground

Darling, please show your teeth
Just one more dance to help me sleep
All good, cold water eyes
Fill the past with friendly nights

Human skin can be hard to live in
You'll feel better in the morning
Swim, wash your hands in the lake
Swim, you got a heart in the way

Trails lost in the snow
Make way for winter's eerie glow
And that black rock in your bedroom
I hope you'll climb it soon

In your boat tied to a tree
I hope you'll find the sea

Throw me a dream please
It's been a dreamless sleep
For such a long time
Such a long time

Sing myself awake
Watch the branches break
No one could
Ever take your place

Swim, wash your face in the lake
Sing, you've got a diamond under your skin
