Ship in a Bottle - Bright Eyes

i wanna be the surgeon that cuts you open
and fixes all of life's mistakes
i wanna be the house that you were raised in
the only place that you feel safe
i wanna be your shower in the morning
that wakes you up and makes you clean
i know i'm just the weather against your window
as you sleep through a winter's dream
so it's chiming the earth
some big star in the sky
every colour at once in the call of a lie
bacteria breeds on a microscope slide
warming my heart's the apple of your eye
don't adore what is impossible
we have built this ship in a wine bottle
but if you knew i would
we'd have to grow old
something's eating at you,
wakes you up in the night
if you're digging the past
who knows what you'll find
read the newspaper print off the microscope slide
and you're holding your breath
for the rest of your life
don't you love what is intengable
i have built this ship in a wine bottle
but if you knew who i was
you would never grow old
