Salt Flats

Lyrics by Nathan Hamer

Sometimes, there is a sea of cold and grey
Run, child, go find a reason here to stay
Let the message that you write
Keep you safe at home and warm tonight

There is a boy, 'bout six years old
Ain't kissed a girl, just does what he's told
One day I'll wake up and say that boy was me

All the pretty girls, all of them around at the bar
Off in the distance, like some fallen star
I hope it comes to this and that and then I'll know to say

Oh, you gotta feel the world today
Oh, you gotta feel the world and bleed the world away

Listen to a story, listen to a story unfold
Like a raging river, diving the way it's told
I hope the salt flats get washed with a cleaner slate

I hope she gets this, such a sweeter song 
See how she broke my heart and moved to friends before too long
I guess she noticed how I lingered there with such a smile

Oh, what a world, what a world we're in here today
Such hearts gleamin' while the darkness seems to slip away
I try to look at things from a different point of view

Oh, you gotta feel the world today
Oh, you gotta feel the world and bleed the world away
