The sea was large today
Just as any other day
But something broke in me
Watching on this winter's eve

Like a voice, that I'd been trying to hide
Pulled me close
And out into the undertow

I can't beat it
Oh! The sirens sing me home
Just can't release it
I didn't have the strength to go

She's a garden rose and blossoms head to toe
And even when she leaves her golden shadow stings

I can't beat it
Every time she goes, cuts me even deeper
If only I'd the strength to go
Like she does

But she's got time on her side
And she's free to decide
Because she's got time on her side
To be young is divine

And scaling the dunes to sea
Where the white wall feeds
Gets me no closer to peace
From the grips that she holds on me

Oh! I can't beat it
Every time she goes
Cuts a lil deeper
So the wound will never close

If only I could beat it
She wouldn't look away for woe
But it finds me when I'm sleeping
And wakes me in a fevered low
Like she does

But she's got time on her side
And she's free to decide
Because she's got time on her side
She's so free, it's sublime

I just wonder if I'm on her mind
As she's on mine, all the time
And I want her to know that I'm on her side
I'm on her side

The sea was large today
Just as any other day

Really can't handle this voice. Thank you.

Hit PSD and got Little Feat "Cold Cold Cold." NOW we're talkin!!! Thanks RP
I have never been able to stomach Future Islands. It really feels very fabricated, corporate driven, pop.

You do mean 'like an adult, male human', correct?
I settled in to listen to their last LP. I was on vacation. I had it on vinyl - as it happened, at the house where I was AirBnBing. I had some previous exposure via RP, so I had recognised the album cover in the pile. Had the lyrics on the cover sleeve in my hands. You know, pretty much the ideal scenario for this listener.

Prepared to strap in for a "moment" and as has been said before...but the moment never came.

Some music is actually better to be listened to with half a brain, in headphones, at work.
7 => 8

and I cranked it up.  (Though any excuse is a good excuse to stop doing taxes....) 
I love !!! So good
I am very happy that RP is giving the new Future Islands CD lots of air play.

"I'll take all of that I can get".... check out Sam Herring live.

Never posted here before. He's worth it.

He sounds more like Sebastian Cabot to me...in a good way.

Steadily tapping my foot to the rhythm and diggin' it!,...an 8 right out of the box!
Alot like LCD Soundsystem but with more interesting vocals
I could say that all their songs sound the same.  They don't, but all their songs are unmistakeably theirs.  I like them.
Great tone on the Jazz Bass!
It seems they become monotonous...  and repeat music from his old albums to a new...
First time I've heard this song, or this band, for that matter.  First impression - I like it.  Catchy tune, like the voice.  Giving it a 7 to start, will probably will go to an 8 after a few more listens.
