Lyrics
I was sitting on a futon couch
In a far off town where the desert meets the sea
You were only wrapped in a towel when you walked out the spare room of my friend’s house
Oh I feel I’ve met you before
Something inside me is trying to remember a story
Oh I think I’ve loved you, I’ve loved you before
Something is tugging my sleeve like a secret whispered from the future

Maybe this is us now
Maybe this is us

Hey hey, what do ya say?
Wanna make history start today?
Hey boy what do you say we jump from here?
Hey what are ya thinking?
Leaning against the kitchen sink
'Cause I see everything now
Sitting on this futon couch
Sitting on this futon couch

You were never gonna leave that town
Where your friends always dropped by unannounced for tea
Oh and where the pain of the world was swallowed when the sunset wiped you clean
Oh I knew I’d heard it before
Nothing is changing till everything changes at once
Oh I knew I felt it right down to my core
Something was writing itself on the walls of our future hearts

Hey hey, what do ya say?
Wanna make history start today?
Hey boy what do you say we jump from here?
Hey, know what, I think you'll be
Kissing me against the kitchen sink
'Cause I see everything now
Sitting on this futon couch
Sitting on this futon couch

'Cause I see water spilling over land
I see a frosted window and the prints of a small hand
I see the lights out, fingers intertwined
I see a cup thrown in silence and the breaking of the night
I see me walking towards you to the sound of Colin Hay
I see the earth split down the centre of our pain
But I see it’s worth it
'Cause I see it all now

Sitting on this futon couch
(Hey, hey, what do ya say?)
(Wanna make history start today?)
Sitting on this futon couch
(Hey, boy, what do ya say we jump?)
Sitting on this futon couch
(Hey, hey, what do ya say?)
(Wanna make history start today?)
Sitting on this futon couch
(Hey, boy, what do ya say we jump?)
I'm on the edge
(Hey, know what I think?)
(You'll be kissing me against the kitchen sink)
Sitting on the edge now ('cause I see everything now)
