Bottom of the Sea Blues

This song is by Johnny Flynn and appears on the album Country Mile (2013).

My age is my condition
My love is my intent
I'll pay time with ageless love
I'll forget what came and went
For a well full of content

There's a space in the heavens
There's a hole in my heart
There's a lack of fine dining gone to work on my art
And a flavour of fullness
Is an empty retreat
And the restaurant buffet isn't all I can eat

My age is my condition
My love is my intent
I'll pay time with ageless love
I'll forget what came and went
For a well full of content

Colors at dawn swallow me
Colors at night set me free

Hard work to get up
Too quick to get down
While love, food, and money
Do all the trade in this town
The bar's looking hollow
And my bones are still white
I haven't the patience to stay out tonight

My age is my condition
My love is my intent
I'll pay time with ageless love
Or forget what came and went
For a well full of content

Stuck with thoughts of the buttercups
And the bees that do naught
But suck on the yellow as nature has taught
I'll suck on the colors that I find in the sea
The blues and the greens, they don't bother me

My age is my condition
My love is my intent
I'll pay time with ageless love
I'll forget what came and went
For a well full of content

My soul is in the trees
It's in the sap that fills the wood
It's in the rings that tell her age
It's in the smoke that marks the days
It's in the fire in my heart
It's in the embers in the soot
It's in the place I put the ash
It's in the soil
It's in the grass
It's in the mouths of all the herd
It's in the beetles and the birds
It's in the feathers that I found one morning lying on the ground
It's hallelujah, aye and oh
It's where I've been and where I go
It's in the people that I meet
It's kneeling silent at their feet
It's ever dutifully yours
It stems my pride
And opens doors

My age is my condition
My love is my intent
I'll pay time with ageless love
I'll forget what came and went
For a well full of content

Colors at dawn swallow me
Colors at night time set me free
