Time, and the distance between your heart and mine
Is weighing on my mind
Like your head on the pillow where you lie

And your eyes
All soft-focussed, moonlit and heavy-lidded
Lips all sticky bittersweet like everything a man like me has ever been forbidden

Bring on hell and high-water
Pay no heed to the angels weeping up above
Your body is a sea of love
Your body is a sea of love

Yeah, well I feel like I’m Jonah stuck inside a whale
I’ve been sailing ‘round the world but I still ain’t seen nothing
Meanwhile there’s blind men and ragamuffins running ‘round outside telling tales

You gave me your love, but I didn’t promise anything
You took my heart and now it’s bound up like a ball of string, and I’m wondering if I should be rattling my tin
This is starting to seem for all the world just like a three-ring circus to me

Well you set my soul on fire
And leave me like a wounded dove
But your heart is like a sea of love
Your heart is like a sea of love

In the cold light of day you say you think you passion’s played out
I know that you’re afraid, yeah there’ll be hell to pay
But right now I ain’t of a mind to give this up and let it fade

You’re just like Joan of Arc, your deception is immaculate
You blame it on your sacred heart but you can’t deny the fact that you meant everything you said to me
When you were lying next to me

And every time you set me free love
All you wanted was to see love
Now you know just what my heart meant
When I said there’s no such thing as accidents
