Lyrics/Notes

These are the vignettes
These are the spaces
These are the moons
Of our creation

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sun gets in your blood

To be a spaceship
And make that turn
To the only home
For which we yearn

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sun gets in your blood

You lick the salt back
And taste the sound
Breathe the air
Until you drown

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sun gets in your blood

A tiny earthquake
That cracks the drive
Through which a flower
Will some day rise

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sun gets in your blood
When the sand in the hourglass has turned to mud
Then people everywhere will seek out all your love

There’s no depression
But symptoms rise
A Sunday drifter
With asphalt eyes

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sun gets in your blood

Glued to wheels
And how they turn
Worn to fossils
With fuel to burn

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sand in the hourglass has turn to mud
Then people everywhere will seek out all your love

Clouds make windows
That frame the sky
Brushed with paint
And hung to dry

When the sun gets in your blood

The price is set
And the market holds
No masterpiece
Unless it’s sold

When the sun gets in your blood

Wide the redwing
And stub the toe
To find the gravel
We used to know

When the sun gets in your blood

Long to winward
On feather luck
I love you bird
Come and pick me up

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sun gets in your blood

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sand and the hourglass turn to mud
Then people everywhere will seek out all your love

When the sun gets in your blood
When the sand and the hourglass turn to mud
Then people everywhere will seek out all your love
People everywhere will seek out all your love
