lyrics

The mornings are bright and full of hope
But just drift into despair
And the island's gotten so small
But it feels so far to go somewhere

And rising into the air
And drifting across the day
It can get so hard
To see through this island haze

I wander through the streets
Drink too much coffee down by the pier
I break my heart over a girl on a bicycle
With a pink umbrella and shining black hair

And rising into the air
And drifting all through the day
It can get so hard
To see through this island haze

It was only the other day
I felt on top of it all
I should go and meet some people
Be talkative and secure
The old stories in my brain
They all start up again
I go through em again and again
but I just can't ever quite seem to win

And it gets so hard
To see through this island Haze

A cracked and dirty ceiling
A rattling fan up on the wall
In a cheap room on a thin old mattress
Nothing to do anymore

But at the latest hour the rain comes sudden
big drops hitting the roofs
With a gathering sound
Like horses down a road
