lyrics

My heart is a ship in a bottle
I come to life when you pull the string
and my soul is a kite on the breezes
I fly to earth at the twitch of the thread

Maybe I can't help but think of you
maybe you've been caught in my mind
maybe to you my thoughts have fastened
like a ram caught in thorns by the horns, caught in thorns by the horns

if you were to ask me
I would answer you- honestly
but I cannot promise
that I would speak at all

But if you wait long enough
I will walk home

you might laugh to consider me
writing out my heart in clear ink
but invisible ink will appear
in the presence of heat, in the presence of heat, that is you

if you were to ask me
I would answer you- honestly
but I cannot promise
that I would speak at all

But if you wait long enough
I will walk home
