David Keenan – Two Kids Lyrics

[Verse 1: David Keenan]
I wipe the sediment from your hair
I taste the laughter on your breath
We sink into the murky waters of cobalt blue
Do you remember how you asked me
If there were lollipop men in heaven
You placed this pebble in my palm
Do not be wasteful, oh make it last
[Chorus: David Keenan & Laura Quirke]
Sail on over here, sail over to me
Row row row your boat gently across the sea
On this lonely island, I’ll share all my toys
With all you other lonely little girls and boys
Daisy, Daisy, I don’t want to be
The loneliest boy in the world
[Verse 2: Laura Quirke]
I run my hands along your forearms
I see the hairs stand to attention
I think they look like daddy long legs playing in the breeze
Let’s set up shop out in the open
Under them pale self-conscious clouds
I’ll write the letters out on
Cardboard as a welcome sign to the crowds
[Chorus: David Keenan & Laura Quirke]
Sail on over here, sail over to me
Row row row your boat gently across the sea
On this lonely island, I’ll share all my toys
Under this blanket we’ll escape from all the noise
Daisy, Daisy, I don’t want you to to be
The loneliest girl in the world
[Verse 3: David Keenan, David Keenan & Laura Quirke]
You take our treasured piece of plastic
Squinting you hold it to the sky
Truly believe that stars are portals to the other side
And then at night when it gets chilly
We’ll steal a smile from Mr. Moon
Before we cuddle up together like two babies in the safety of the womb
[Chorus: David Keenan & Laura Quirke]
Sail on over here, sail over to me
Row row row your boat gently across the sea
On this lonely island, I’ll share all my toys
Under this blanket we’ll escape from all the noise
Daisy, Daisy
I don’t want you
[Daisy, daisy, ] I don’t want you
[Daisy, daisy, ] I don’t want you to be
The loneliest boy in the world
When happiness outgrows us
If fear and sickness came and chose us
Well your mother she disowned us
Whispering spare change for the homeless
Look up, give me a twirl
As the seagulls start to circle
You proudly show me your new bruises
Where be the bucket and the spade
We place my flame under the spoon
Whisper that tune
As the pink balloon leaves us high as a kite
[Outro: David Keenan & Laura Quirke]
Sail on over here, sail over to me
Row row row your boat gently across the sea
On this lonely island, I’ll share all my toys
With all you other lonely little girls and boys
