The Take Off And Landing Of Everything

This song is by Elbow and appears on the album The Take Off and Landing of Everything (2014).

You have the time-worn shimmer
Of tarantella on a Tuscan plain
Patiently listen as dull reminiscences
Fall from my jaws in a jumble again

You hold a lamp to my slumber
I resurface just to do a new number on you

You kiss the wrist of the hand
That has twisted itself all into your hair
You close the blinds and doors behind me
And clear all obstacles on the stair

You are an open book
I'm on the bathroom floor
Yours is an open door
I'm throwing ballast overboard, yeah

You are a genius teetering
Hurricane wild be calm as the deep
Every living thing needs watering
I miss loving you, actually loving you

Words on my bedroom wall
Speak of my stone cold care

A prayer to the take off and landing of everything
Leaving your lips as we took to the sky
And a prayer to the take off and landing of everything
I'll say for you and I will for all time

Wrote on my bedroom wall
Spoke of your deep true care
Over my shoulder and just as I leave
I see you slipping the world up your sleeve

Well, take it and run
Go on, go on
That's why it's there

In a prayer to the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
Good

In a prayer to the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
Good

In a prayer to the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
Good

In a prayer to the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
Good

In a prayer to the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
Good

In a prayer to the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
Good

In a prayer to the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
To the take off and landing of everything
Good

Good
Everything good
