lyrics

Telepath the truth to me while we sleep
A lie can last forever but the truth will not keep
Am I one of those girls that you never could know?
Substitute love for a warm afterglow.

Cause I have brought you the deepest truths that I knew how to
and you shot me down with a look and a frown till
all my thunder fell to the ground.

Telepath the truth to me while we sleep
A lie can last forever but the truth will not keep
Am I one of those girls that you never could know?
Substitute love for a warm afterglow.

Cause I have loved you an awful lot, considering the things that you do and
I am an apple bearing tree
but I often get the feeling you'll make lumber out of me.

Telepath the truth to me while we sleep

And I'll wake up feeling light in my step
I'll run off to sea, and I'll learn to forget. I'd
rather have wet feet than have wet eyes and
I'll stick New Years Resolutions
between my thighs

Oh the sea. Oh the sea
calls to me and
I always come.
