in water
lyrics

I think of you in water

And coming out of water

Hair slicked black

Wet, I gasp

I think of you in wartime

And coming out of war

Your hands in knots

Red and can't grasp

The well is deep

Let's bathe in it

The well is deep

It'll hold us up

I think of you in wonder

And when the wonders explode

Stripped of mystery

What are we without eyeliner

And silvered endings of hope?

The well is deep

Let's bathe in it

The well is deep

It'll hold us up

Let's swim in the water
