When I lift my feet up
In my swivel chair
Both feet up off the floor

I can spin around
A wave that’s churning backward
Bring me back to town

If I could pull in closer
Get the timing right
Jump and land upright on shore

Got a slapback echo
And a strobing light
Drop the shadow to the floor

There’s always time to travel
But there’s no time travel
My only wish is one wish more

I’d ask for brighter lights
A more careful process
A gentle start, a better day
