Lyrics

She held out for the summer to end
And when the wind changed
She let out for the north
As far away as she can get
From all that talk and all that noise
And all those excuses

They said let the bird fly
And she’ll come back
If she loves you
But he knows that she won’t
Beneath all those evasions, those endless evasions
She’d torn the net that he would never test

Love is stranger than fiction
Truth is just her opinion

He part his part dry eyed and secretly a bullion (?)
He dressed in black
But he lived in the red
He poured his heart out to all the wrong people
In all the right bars
His heart had never learned that much

Love is stranger than fiction
Truth is just her opinion

Love is stranger than fiction
Truth is just her opinion

Now on a beach beyond the break
She saw the world
The way it used to be
One stretched to nothing
And blue upon blue upon blue upon blue upon blue
And just the sound of her breathing

Just the sound of her breathing
Just the sound of her breathing
Just the sound of her breathing
Just the sound of her breathing
Just the sound of her breathing
