lyrics

Except, he said, I think in them
Your images aren't enough, she said
The time it takes you to feel
Loses feeling
You can't separate yourself
From your worst part
Waves are crashing
Body floating
Shipwreck the same
Lost love again
By water it's better broken
Fights better when its parts
Are losing
When losing is
And feels like field
When glitter for a while
Feels like skin
Sun adores you
Like I do

Sometimes in the rain
Your shipwreck is the same
Every night I try to save you
Every light I shine to faze you
Oh Leander She says, I'm still here
I'm still here He says

It isn't enough, she says The time it takes                                 
The time it takes you to feel it You to feel it loses feeling
Loses feeling It isn't enough, your images
You can't separate yourself
From your worst part
Oh Leander, I'm still yours
I adore you

Gee, I really love you
I really love you
Gee, I really love you
I do

By water it's better broken
Fights better when its parts
Are losing
When losing is
And feels like field
Sun adores you
Like I do

Sometimes in the rain
Your shipwreck is the same
Every night I try to save you
Every light I shine to faze you
Oh Leander, I'm still yours
Lost lover in the rain

It isn't enough, she says It isn't enough, she says
It isn't enough, he says It isn't enough, your images
I think in images
You feel separate
Oh Leander, I adore you
I adore you I adore you
I adore you I adore
I adore you
I adore you

By water it's better broken
Fights better when its parts
Are losing
When losing is
And feels like field
When glitter for a while
Feels like skin
Oh Leander
Waves are crashing
Body floating
Shipwreck the same
Lost love again

Bells will ring Waves are crashing
Sun will shine Body floating
I'll be his Shipwreck the same
And he'll be mine Lost love again
We'll love until
The end of time
