The Motion of the Earth

from by Jeff Zentner

lyrics

sometimes i stay awake
after you’ve gone to sleep

lying in the dark
i listen to you breathe

the rise of your chest
and i lie there and think

about the motion of the earth
as it circles round the sun

the rolling of the tides
as they break upon the shores

there are just two things
that could take me from your side

the motion of the earth
the rolling of the tides

we have so little time
we have so little time
we have so little time

we can still defeat
the motion of the earth

we can still defeat
the rolling of the tides

come with me outside
it snows just twice a year

it whispers as it falls
watch the running deer

they run before the snow
their fauns at their side
