The most beautiful lyrics I’ve ever read

Last week, my dear friend Blake told me to check out a singer named Josh Pyke. I love music recommendations (especially international ones), so I was already excited. Then I listened to “The Summer” (Blake’s suggestion) and it was completely haunting and lovely, so I felt the need to look at the lyrics. Reading this song completely blew me away. Here’s the first verse:

If I could bottle up the sea breeze I would take it over to your house
And pour it loose through your garden
So the hinges on your windows would rust and colour
Like the boats pulled up on the sand for the summer
And your sweet clean clothes would go stiff on the line
And there’d be sand in your pockets and nothing on your mind
