lyrics

She works a hostess job that pays
A bit above minimum wage
Though she once earned an Art degree

He does the dishes in the back
Leans up against that old glass rack
And whistles songs among the grease

And every night he mops the place
Then takes her hand to dance
And sings another unique masterpiece

And when they're dancing with each other
A distant song has been recovered

That is only understood between the lovers

They see a movie Sunday night
Then take a ride under the lights
And watch a glorious sunrise

They chat about the films they’ve seen
The places they have never been
And probably will never see

And though she only wanted fun
Somehow she knows that in this one
A history has just begun

And when they're dancing with each other
A distant song has been recovered

That is only understood between the lovers

They rent a place above the street
And watch the people on their feet
Go looking for that missing link

He does the dishes as she sleeps
And sees her paints that she still keeps
Awaiting underneath the sink

And as he watches down below
He feels her breath somehow he knows
Beneath all surfaces a glow

And when they're dancing with each other
A distant song has been recovered

That is only understood between the lovers
That is only understood between the lovers
That is only understood between the lovers

What if they're just constructs?
If it comes
From within?
Our thoughts may seem like rocks
But a river runs everything thin
