Look at me I'm smooth like a shell
Put your head down
You can hear the ocean
Hold my body feel it roll
So much inside and it's all been broken
You know it's just one step out it could all be over
You know this could rip us out at the seams
I'm falling, it's all in your hands
Don't let it wash away

I'm aching, don't take it all away
Breaking the shell again
Look at me I'm out on the edge
Put your hand here
See I'm bleeding
I can't get it, get the light out
I can't seem to tear out the feeling
You know it's just one step out it could all be over
You know this could rip us out at the seams

I'm falling, it's all in your hands
Don't let it wash away
I'm aching, don't take it all away
Breaking the shell again
I am a box, I am a fish, I am a trail, I keep you warm
And I remember stripping down to meet the water
Wading out to where the sky turns under
My insides smooth like a shell
Like a shell

You know this could rip us out at the seams
I'm falling; it's all in your hands
Don't let it wash away
I'm aching; don't take it all away
Breaking the shell again
I'm falling; it's all in your hands
Don't let it wash away
I'm aching; don't take it all away
Breaking the shell again
Look at me I'm smooth like a shell
Put your head in
Hear the ocean, roll
