The Whole World Tucked Away

from by Low Island

lyrics

We climb in our shells
And wander the beach
It’s ok, it’s ok to feel lonely
And get swallowed up, and steal away
And tell no one, no not a soul where we lie
Unseen, unknown
You know who I am but don’t know me at all
You can’t think, feel touch
You’re all I need but don’t give me enough
On the phone, at night
Sometimes you laugh
And sometimes you cry
All this other life
Keeps you up in a pool of blue light
The whole world tucked away
Just like daylight, it keeps everyone awake
Overcome, overcome
Time to choose
It’s a drug, it’s a drug that you can’t refuse
Sold as fun, sold as yours
Nothing to lose
It’s a drug, it’s a drug that you can’t refuse
