Lyrics:

I will follow you for miles
steady hot along this trail
but I've had a look and I don't think this will sail
see them holes where wood should be
we are no match for the sea

taking golf balls to the windows
breaking glass until it's dust
and I've had a blast, but I don't think this is love
see them holes where trust should be
it was fun but glass is weak

keep it still, no don't you move
until they tell you what to do
it's not hard to play the game
and act like you know all their names

I could run for centuries
and still be places I won't go
read all of you books and things
still don't know what I don't know

I was blinded by the feeling
only you would come to know
do yourself a favor and please just let this go
see these holes where eyes should be
almost paradoxically
now there's things I'll never see

keep it still, no don't you move
until they tell you what to do
it's not hard to play the game
and act like you know why you came

I could run for centuries
and still be places I won't go
read all of you books and things
still don't know what I don't know

I will find you in the winter
sitting lonely in the sun
babe, I've got good news, oh you won't guess what I've done
see this hole where a heart should be
it was an easy surgery

now I don't bother with love
take my hand, let's have some fun
