The winters mar the Earth It's floor was frozen glass You slip into my arms And you quickly correct yourself Your freezing speech bubbles Seem to hold your words aloft I want the smoky clouds of laughter To swim about me forever more
[Chorus] I will race you to the waterside And from the edge of Ireland shout out loud So they could hear it in America It's all for you
The shells crack under our shoes Like punctuation points The planets bend between us A hundred million suns and stars The sea filled in this silence Before you sank those words And now even in the darkness I can see how happy you are
It's all for you [Repeat: x5]

Country star Slim Whitman's version of the 1920s song "Rose Marie" spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams’ "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" spent 16 weeks at the top.
