lyrics

I belong to the world
But only on very high days
Else let me run to your arms
Before it swallows me away

There is a hollow in me
That gets big for things like the sea
And it comes up to my eyes
Because it longs to be seen

But my eyes just make you smile
Yeah, you only see what you like
And I guess you only like
Things that make you smile

So let it swell in me
It’s a nice kind of pain
It stretches out into the sea
And it lengthens my days

I long to live high
And I’ve longed it for a while
Up above the sea
And this empty weight in me

But it never comes
And it’s me that keeps it back
But I would not long for the sea
If it was something I could have

So let it swell in me
It’s a nice kind of pain
It stretches out into the sea
And it lengthens my days

And I do not think in the world
There is anything at all
Could take away this mood
That holds me down so low

But it gives me something to do
Whilst the day passes on
Yes I long for it to leave
And I’ve always liked to long

So let it swell in me
It’s a nice kind of pain
It stretches out into the sea
And it lengthens my days

Oh let it swell in me
It’s a nice kind of pain
It stretches out into the sea
And it lengthens my days
