As the day began for us
we knew what is going to happen
I said some nonsense and you laughed
it was clear that it's a game

As you stood in your gown
as you rolled up your look
it felt sweet in the bones
we knew it is going to happen

Sea salt, sea salt, whipped cream sweetness
sand on your lip, sand on your impertinent lip
your smile, your smile undresses with permission
your look, your look exposed even more

Slowly slowly with laziness
in the rhythm of afternoon
we did not want to be pressed
we went home to wash up

Only as were were one and one (alone)
maybe I was a bit bothered
then the warm, sharp joy came
we brought together two into one

Sea salt...

I'll take air, I'll bring us water
maybe I'll stop shaking in the meantime
and then I'l write this fast
to prove something good
