lyrics

We took the side road to the sea
You didn’t speak and hardly breathed
While I listened to the sounds of the road you made patterns in the steam
We lit a fire by a fisherman’s boat
And sat down to watch the sea
I still hoped for a change in the weather but you wanted just to leave
Well, that’s you and me.

Stay for tea tonight,
We won’t be back here again some other time.
And you can say just what you like
And then we’ll float away upon the tide
Why don’t we stay at home tonight
And then we won’t be alone this final time
After all we’re not machines eating coals and breathing steam

Stopped at a café, read a dirty magazine,
These things once learned will soon enough become routine
We couldn’t fade away into the sand and salty sea
Lost little robots from the city
Well that’s you and me

But stay for me tonight,
We won’t be back here again some other time.
And you can say just what you like
And then we’ll float away upon the tide
Why don’t we stay at home tonight
And then we won’t be alone this final time
After all we’re not machines eating coals and breathing steam
