Don't

take it all at once

bit by bit please


bit by bit


that way,

it lingers on the tongue

like a sweet dream

like a sweet...


a little sleep

is what I need

it's what I need


say, swan king

you're standing in the snow

and your footprints,

they look like ghosts


and swan king

looks back straight at me

and says "hey sweet thing,

don't you know?


that it's time

time you catched your breath,

stow it in your heart,

tie it to your wrist

time you catched your breath”


time you catched your breath

time you catched your breath


swan king,

teach me how to write

in a straight line,

in this strange life


hey kid, no more regrets

straighten up your back

there you got the hang of it


time you catched your breath

time you catched your breath (x3)


time you catched your breath

time you catched your soul


welcome home,

hello
