Candles, Birds, Water

Hey hey, don't you come around here, no
Hey hey, don't you come around here, no
 
You call out in bliss
 
Three lovers
walked around the poolside
blowing out candles
that erupt, from the bottom

of the water
the blue water


And there were birds
of many colors
Mating birds, orange birds in pairs
I chased one away
Smacked the other in the face, and said
don't come back, you only get hurt
You only get hurt


Lover, where are you now
Eating pretzels and cake
You're shouting at birds
that call you names
You're throwing rocks at mountains
Lover, destroyer
 
Love, it has no boundaries
I see it come and it go as it pleases
Love, it has no boundaries
I see it come and it go as it pleases
See it come and it go as we need it
 
Push me down
Dig me underneath
Submerge me, try to blow me out
I'm a candle, and I burn under water
and the lovers, they try to blow me out


I've only got my dreams
I've only got my voice
I've only got my beating lungs
I only got my bones, my bones

to have fun
 
 Where are you now
Eating pretzels and cake
You're shouting at birds
that call you names
You're throwing rocks at mountains
 Lover, destroyer


 
Love, it has no boundaries
I see it come and it go as it pleases
Love, it has no boundaries
I see it come and it go as it pleases
See it come and it go as we need it
 
  Don't come around 'cause I'll hurt you
Don't come around 'cause I'll hurt you
