I had a romance
In the shadows
We used to slow dance
While you were all asleep

On the off chance
That you were watching
We’d wear our hats low
And talk softer than the breeze

Some days
We spun out of the shade
Some days
We moved across your gaze

We moved far
From the water
and across a mountain range

I played my guitar
And tried to make that sound
Of the bells and boat calls
That came across the bay

Some days
Were tore across the sky
Some days
We’d never leave the room

Like wind through the pepper tree leaves she
drifted off of me
But I can still hear the bells across town

She’d put her finger on my lips
And whisper “quiet, can you hear the ships singing
Out across the bay?”
