Grown Ocean

Album: Helplessness Blues (2011)
  • In that dream I'm as old as the mountains
    Still is starlight reflected in fountains
    Children grown on the edge of the ocean
    Kept like jewelry kept with devotion

    In that dream moving slow through the morning

    You would come to me then without answers
    Lick my wounds and remove my demands for now
    Eucalyptus and orange trees are blooming
    In that dream there's no darkness alluded

    In that dream moving slow through the morning time

    In that dream I could hardly contain it
    All my life I will wait to attain it
    There, there, there

    I know someday the smoke will all burn off
    All these voices I'll someday have turned off
    I will see you someday when I've woken
    I'll be so happy just to have spoken
    I'll have so much to tell you about it

    In that dream I could hardly contain it
    All my life I will wait to attain it
    There, there, there

    Wide-eyed walker, don't betray me
    I will wake one day, don't delay me
    Wide-eyed leaver, always going Writer/s: Robin Noel Pecknold
