lyrics

SO CLOSE IT GLOWS

You will take me
Out to sea
But will you follow me to the Yukon
When we are old men?

You surprised me
No easy feat
Taking me out to sea
Past the golden gate
Holding hands to balance
There were islands
And sea lions
And whales who tried land
And went back to water

I won't forget
The best date ever
I'll come back for seconds

I can hear a dull roar
My ear to the ground
A hum coming
A train

I can't tell you
I can tell the future
And in it
There is a place we go
That is so close it glows

How did you know?
