Tattoo of The Sun - Third Eye Blind

We cruse high in the summer sky
I believe everything you say
'Cause you're not frightened
The way I've been so
So I follow you
Just in case you lose your way
So glad you let me stay around
The chain link fence you climbed
To make forbidden lakes our own
Yours and mine
And with ease of the sea gulls
We cut the engines and we cruise high
In the summer sky, baby
Now I could speak to everything
But there's no room for my voice
When sweet feedback
Is jumpin' through the hoop of your earring
There goes the phone
And then you're off again
On what the caller brings you
So I went and trashed myself at the bar
Confused for nothin'
Thinkin' you'd be there
I'm so embarrassed 'cause it's you
Who comes to take care of me
Shamblin' home again with you to lead
And it's not the way I wanna go
And I'm mad at you and I'm mad at me
Talking endlessly, not a kind word to say
Till your amber beads of wisdom come
And I want to write 'em down
Just the way you said it, oh no
So I could keep it always, always
I can't forget the smell
Of summer trees at midnight
Bendin' backwards to please the wind
You touch the tattoo of the sun
On a warm belly that once
Carried a baby for a while
Then let that crackled leather jacket round you fold
Red face saints monogrammed in gold
And in this beauty
I would not go any further
'Cause I suddenly remembered
We can't live this way forever
Idle daylight, oh
I've never caught you in a lie
Not until now
I feel somehow
I felt the passing of these days goin' by
What will you do when the feeling
That you have is through
I need to know
'Cause I'll never stop hangin' on to you
And it's times like this that I dread
When there's everything to say
And nothing left
To be said
To be said
And it makes me sad
