Verse 2.
You will not burn me up
though I've dreamed nightly of your face
and walked the streets of my life
with your singing in my silent brain
you cannot burn me up
i'm a fallen leaf who keeps her green
and don't forget I've got my
trusty bag of oh-oh-oh

Chorus

(flashing in the night, crashing all around my eyes)
saltbreakers
(throwing me down turning on the fire flies)
saltbreakers
(the ebb and the flood, clearing all the channels of your heart)

Bridge. (SAME CHORDS STILL)
bleached by the dark
oceans of clouds
rainstorms of ash
stars on the ground

Chorus.
all around my-y saltbreakers
(floating like a butterfly singing like a bumblebee)
saltbreakers
(dashing alright, splashing and slumbering)
saltbreakers
(mirror to the serpentine stars)
