lyrics

Underneath the things you say
I climb on board a pretty white ship
but she flies a black flag
the pretty white floorboards on the upper deck - there I'll lay you down my love, and one time to your face
I'll say my love

and on our backs you let me lie beside you without touching you at all
and we look up at the stars and to the stars I say, “all is well between us”

I gather all of my hopes together
and I hope that I can keep them with me. I stitched up a pretty white flag for the journey, and I hope that I can
carry out my plan.

cuz underneath the things I say
I climb on board a pretty black ship
but she flies a white flag
a pretty white flag
