  • In the orchard we see you once again
    Listening only with the sunlight in your arms
    It's a change to see you in my world again
    Only visiting but happy anyway

    It's a joy
    To see you waiting there
    Lit up, left glowing in the air

    It's a joy
    To know you're waiting there
    Writing letters, left burning in the air

    In the picture we see you once again
    Still leaning with the sunlight on your arms
    Then the life sent itself into the air
    Until someone came upon the frozen stare

    It's a joy
    To see you waiting there
    Lit up, left glowing in the air

    It's a joy
    To know you're waiting there
    Writing letters, left burning in the air

    Bringing all wonders to light
    Bringing all wonders to light

    Like an ocean
    Life that overcomes
    Like an ocean
    Likely follows right behind
    The only one

    On a lonely ship, we are
    Waking like an ocean which is sighing oh
    Even when I told you were wrong
    Turns out you were right all along

    Hold me open when I am with you
    Hold me open when I am with you
    You know it's gone
    You see me run
    As if to hide

    There on a lonely ship, filled full
    Of an ocean which is burning oh

    Melt together when I am with you
    Held together when I am with you
    We had it there
    We had it there
    I could have sworn

    Turns out you were right all along Writer/s: FARIS ADAM BADWAN, JOSEPH PATRICK SPURGEON, JOSHUA MARK HAYWARD, RHYS TIMOTHY WEBB, TOM FURSE COWAN
