lyrics

i had a dream that a rosebush had moved to the phillipines
and left me behind
never said goodbye, but a princess came by
and looked out on the distant horizon

she told me sometimes, when the world was too bright
she wished she could sail away too
i still don't know why they went over the ocean
i could be there if i knew

they set sail for tanjay a long time ago
barely halfway in the dark undertow
they were still sinking,

i brought down one small piece of autumn to those submarine flowers
just to prove that i was sorry
and then i was out on the ocean alone
cause i had to resurface to breathe

i know at the moment you're deep in the ocean
but wait for the hope to rebound, because maybe, just
maybe one day i can plant you again
safe on solid ground

and i'll never be far away, whether we are
unravelled or unwound
that is the dream which is realer than princesses, rosebushes, tanjay
or anything we've found
