or
Nine Days

Fading like a wilted flower
Even in our finest hour
All the dream you realize
Are you sleeping here with me tonight

Words are falling off the pages
Letter kept locked birds in cages
Feeling like I've lost my mind
Here forever missing you

In dreams of lavish gifts we hide
And if you'd wake up near me here you'd find

I would be the water
Of waves in oceans crashing
On the shores of your body
I am forever sinking in your sand
Don't have to look much further
Standing strong for you
I'd steal all the salt from the raging sea
To bring back love's divinity
Today

Pieces fall along the way
Scattered thoughts of yesterday
If I could find a way to put this
Back together again

A dream you keep inside your mind
And if you wake up near me you will find

I would be the water
Of waves in oceans crashing
On the shores of your body
I am forever sinking in your sand
Don't have to look much further
Standing strong for you
I'd steal all the salt from the raging sea
To bring back love's divinity
Today

Look what you've got
Look what you've got
'Cause you're not getting any younger than today

Fading like a wilted flower
This could be our finest hour
All the dreams you realize
Are sleeping here with me tonight

I would be the water
Of waves in oceans crashing
On the shores of your body
I am forever sinking in your sand
Don't have to look much further
Standing strong for you
I'd steal all the salt from the raging sea
To bring back love's divinity
Today

Look what you've got
Look what you've got, yeah
