The Saltwater Room - Owlcity

I opened my eyes last night , and saw you in the low light
Walking down by the bay, on the shore
staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore
I was feeling the night grow old , and you were looking so cold
Like an introvert, I drew my over shirt
Around my arms and began to shiver violently before
You happened to look and see the tunnels all around me
Running into the dark underground
All the subways around create a great sound
To my motion fatigue: farewell
With your ear to a seashell , You can hear the waves
in underwater caves , As if you actually were inside
a saltwater room

( Time together is just never quite enough) When you and I are alone,
( I’ve never felt so at home What will it take to make or break this hint of love ? )
We need time, only time
( When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of ? )
If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone ?
( So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love ? )
All the time, all the time

Can you believe that the crew has gone , and wouldn’t let me sign on?
All my islands have sunk , in the deep,
so I can hardly relax or even oversleep
I feel as if I were home , some nights
when we count all the ship lights
I guess I’ll never know
why sparrows love the snow
We’ll turn off all of the lights
and set this ballroom aglow

(So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?)

All the time, all the time
