Life is a Long Time

Your blue eyes are like the deepest and the warmest seas
As the salt elevates my body, they float my heart up past my teeth
And with the water and the Cypriot sun, would your psoriasis bleach and be gone?
Would it fix the pallor of my skin? Would my freckles all meld into one?
Your body above me, sobbing down, my cheeks wet from your tears
They extinguish each of the burning thread veins, flow down to my ears
Now they rest in two tiny reservoirs that overfed the wedded canals

You know it starts pretty rough and ends up even worse,
And what goes on in between, I try to keep it out of my thoughts

And life, life is a long time, too long to my mind, too long by far
Between my waterfalls and your landslides, there's cartography in every scar
Life, life is a long time, too long to my mind, too long by far

Because it starts pretty rough and ends up even worse,
And what goes on in between, I try to keep it out of my thoughts

Life is a Long Time by Los Campesinos! form the album Hello Sadness.

Listen to the album; I recommend it.
