So the wind that blows across your roomCarried cheap perfume onto your dresserIt rained for jewelry and for credit cardsTwo tickets to a film I don't rememberOne day you'll kiss your rabbit's nose, pick up the phoneTo find I've been turned overAnd you'll grab that piece of goldOnly to find that the smell has taken overNow all the things you had, they aren't the same...As what you hold
I'm standing in a room,It's filled with older folks pleading "baby listen"And I scream as loud as anyone,But when asked to make a point I tend to whisperNow highways turn to tidal wavesThey're asking me to export all of your insecuritiesBut that wind that blows across your roomIts gonna set the sails, and send me back to you
Sometimes, when sailors are sailingThey think twice, about where they're anchoringAnd I think, I could make better use of my time on landIll drink lessCause lord knows I could use a warm kissInstead of a cold goodbyeI'm writing the folks back home to tell them"Hey I'm doing alright"
It's a shame what your father did to your brother's headHe smashed it with a telephoneAnd your mother got scared and locked the doorYou were only four, but lord you remember itSo now you're scared of loveI'm here to tell you loves not some blood on the receiverLove is speaking in codeIt's an inside jokeLove is coming home
Sometimes, when sailors are sailingThey think twice, about where they're anchoringAnd I think, I could make better use of my time on landill drink lesscause lord knows I could use a warm kissinstead of a cold goodbyeI'm writing the folks back home to tell them"hey I'm doing alright"
