Marine Layer

Lyrics

It’s blocking out the sun

The cold wind off the sea

And I’m gasping for air

But you won’t talk to me

I’m struggling for words

To shout above this din

But the marine layer, the marine layer

Is rolling in, rolling in

 

I step into the tide

And hear the ocean roar

I turn and look behind

But you’re still on the shore

I try to catch your eye

To see me once again

But the marine layer, the marine layer

Is rolling in, rolling in

 

I know that a million years have come and gone

And time polishes rocks and stones we’re stepping on

But I’m feeling the pull of the moon upon my heart

And I don’t have a way to tell you, tell you

I can’t start

 

I sink into the sand

And hold my feelings in

But if I were to speak

Where would I begin

And though the sun is bright

The light begins to dim

As the marine layer, the marine layer

Comes rolling in, rolling in
