The Saltwater Room Lyrics

The Saltwater Room by Owl City  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The Saltwater Room [BOY]
I opened my eyes
Last night
And saw you in the low light
Walking down by the bay
On the shore
Staring up at the stars
That aren't there anymore
I was feeling the night
Grow old
And you were looking so cold
Like an introvert
I drew my overshirt
Around my arms
And began to shiver violently before
You happened to look
And see
The tunnels all around me
Running into the dark underground
All the subaways around
Create a great sound
To my motion fatigue:
Farewell
With your ear to a seashell
You can hear the waves
In underwater caves
As if you actually were
Inside a saltwater room

*INSTRUMENTAL*

[GIRL]
Time togther
Is just never quite enough
[BOY]
When you and I are alone
I've never felt so at home
[GIRL]
What will it take
To make or break this hint of love?
[BOY]
We need time
[BOTH]
Only time
[GIRL]
When we're apart
Whatever are you thinking of?
[BOY]
If this is what I call home
Why does it feel so alone?
[GIRL]
So tell me darling
Do you wish we'd fall in love?
[BOY]
All the time
[BOTH]
All the time
[BOY]
Can you believe that the crew
Has gone
And wouldn't let me sign on?
All my islands have sunk
In the deep
So I can hardly relax
Or even over sleep
I feel as if I were home
Some nights
When we count all the ship lights
I guess I'll never know
Why sparrows love the snow
We'll turn off all of the lights
And set this ballroom aglow

[GIRL FAINTLY]
So tell me darling
Do you wish we'd fall in love?
All the time
[GIRL]
Time togther
Is just never quiet enough
[BOY]
When you and I are alone
I've never felt so at home
[GIRL]
What will it take
To make or break this hint of love?
[BOY]
We need time
[BOTH]
Only time
[GIRL]
When we're apart
Whatever are you thinking of?
[BOY]
If this is what I call home
Why does it feel so alone?
[GIRL]
So tell me darling
Do you wish we'd fall in love?
[BOY]
All the time
[BOTH]
All the time

*INSTRUMENTAL*

[GIRL]
Time together
Is just never quite enough
When we're apart
Whatever are you thinking of?
What will it take
To make or break this hint of love?
So tell me darling
Do you wish we'd fall in love?
All the time
