Future Islands Close To None

You look like you wanted home

Far from god, and close to none

I’ve been waiting for the sun

To wash away those powdered eyes

And I’ve been wanting to hear a voice

But not a word from, Madeleine

I’ve been trying

To get back to you

For some time

Darling, I was simply blind

How the mountains play tricks on our eyes

The sea has saved

The life you made

The white of waves

The truth of waves

I’ve been waiting for the sun

To wash away those marble eyes

And I’ve been wanting to hear a voice

But not a word from…

You look like you wanted home

And now that I’ve found you

You’re not alone

Because you know me

And I know you

You know me

And I know you
