Staring at the sun

You’re staring at the sun
    ‘Cause I am due for a miracle
You’re standing in the sea
    I’m waiting for a sign
Your mouth is open wide
    I’ll stare straight into the sun
You’re trying hard to breathe
    And I won’t close my eyes
The water’s at your neck
    ‘Til I understand or go blind
There’s lightning in your teeth
    ‘Til I understand or go blind
Your body’s over me
