Reach for the moonlight and wipe the sleep from my eyes
Oh dear, face this fear
Taking it easy is always better in practice
Relax into it

It’s only midnight it’s only just the waves

How will there always be this echoing void which
Burns at the touch
Not so alone in our loneliness but confined
That comfort escapes us

It’s only midnight it’s only just waves

It’s just the waves, it’s just the waves
I know that you can’t be with me I know that you can’t stay
And ohhh
