Schwa Lyrics

Treasures That I Travel For

Lyricist: Ed McGee
Vocalist: Ed McGee
Lazy, lazy, nearly crazy,
across a valley deep and hazy,
later I will light the candles
and wade in water without sandals.
	But now I swim through heavy air
	with focused eyes, but no one's there.
	Distance covered, distance more,
	and treasures that I travel for.
Later then, when I arrive
and unborn things come alive,
later wade amid the flame
gently whispering your name.

Lazy, lazy, silly paisley,
you're well within the deep and hazy.
Later you will hear your name 
and floating candles will the same.
	But now you only hold your breath
	and, teasing, smile from your depth.
	Distance covered, distance more,
	and treasures that I travel for.

I've just enough time to take note
of the thin seaweed like blades of grass.
They flow in the pulse of the tide
and caress your face or brush right past.
And slowly your soft, brown hair on the ocean floor
is covered with sand.
You lie on your back and you smile
and the hazy deep demands.

You lie on your back and you smile
and the hazy deep is damned.

So later, when the taunting stops
and words become your only props,
later then, we'll drown in sleep
well within in the hazy deep.

Later then, we'll drown in sleep
way beneath the hazy deep,
far below the hazy deep,
well within the hazy deep.

Later then, we'll drown in sleep.
