I ought to leave
Enough hot water
For your morning bath
That I'd not thought I

Hate to hear you talk that way
But I can't bring myself to say I'm sorry
The past is always
Knocking incessant
Trying to break through
Into the present
We have to work to keep it out
And I won't be the first to shout
It's over
I used to want to plant bombs
The last night of the proms
But, now you'll find me with the baby in the bathroom
With that big shell listening for the sound of the sea

I steal a kiss from you
In the supermarket
I walk you down the aisle
You fill my basket
And through it all
The stick I take
Is worth it with the love we make

I used to want to plant bombs
At the last night of the proms
But now you'll find me with the baby in the bathroom
With that big shell listening for the sound of the sea
The baby and me

I stayed in bed
Alone uncertain
Then I met you
You drew the curtains
The sun came up
The trees began to sing
And light shone in on everything
I love you
The sun cam up
The trees began to sing
And Light shone in on everything
I love you
