I'm pulsing with the hum
A sugar-coated buzz
Your understated style
Words on the tip of my tongue
When the lights go out
The spoke of the sun
And all our pieces undone
I'm drawn in by the fire
Burning in your stare
When the lights go out

It's a sad little death
A spell in the night
But baby I'm so glad
I'm tied up in the thread
When the lights go out
The years have treated me wrong
Here's a salvation song
Your whispers soft as down
There's sparks on the edge of your thumb
When the lights go out

'Cause as I drift to sea to your painted island
You're waiting, you're my siren on the quay
And when I'm in need of some special destruction
You're playing with dynamite on a ledge
It's the gentlest stroke of lightning
Illuminates me in the dark
We'll let ourselves burn so bright
Candle in the mist on a midnight walk

You're my island
Oh you're my island
