lyrics

Has the grass grown back yet
from the fire we didn't light?
Cradle days arose from the rent we never paid

Did you catch that sunset?
The last parade before the night
Elephants painting over plans we never made

Where did you appear from?
The middle of a vast expanse
An apparition that sank right next to the shore

Danny walked on the water, turned the handle to a door that opened
(Wide up) to the sky
Sunlight stolen by the lilies, underneath the bellies and the bile,
oh why?

Can I see right through you,
or is there glass still in the way
Of spray-paint faces growling at the moose licking your limbs?

Have we grown up too soon?
Apparently a trifle late
A whipper-snap could never teach me how to swim.

Danny walked on the water, turned the handle to a door that opened
(Wide up) to the sky
Sunlight stolen by the lilies, underneath the bellies and the bile,
oh why?

Lovely evening it was, when we were the four of us
Speaking words we'd only admit in a song

What is it you've become?
Sometimes a subject of romance
Everything you had, lost to the banks
In parting ways you've gained much more

The walls may soon be falling
Leaving no life to insulate
From danceless floorboards may spring up a brighter face

Danny walked on the water, turned the handle to a door that opened
(Wide up) to the sky
Sunlight stolen by the lilies, underneath the bellies and the bile,
oh why?

(Then I walked, cuz you walked) Then we walked on the water
Turned the light on in our eyes that opened
(Wide up) to the sky
Morning broken by the silence
Underneath the bellies and the bile, oh why?
