NIKI – Oceans & Engines Lyrics

Verse 1
Saturday sunset, we’re lying on my bed
With five hours to go
Fingers entwined and so were our minds
Crying, “I don’t want you to go”
You wiped away tears, but not fears
Under the still and clear indigo
You said “Baby, don’t cry, we’ll be fine
You’re the one thing I swear I can’t outgrow”

Verse 2
My mother said the younger me was a pretending prodigy
Well, nothing, then, much has changed
‘Cause while you’re wolfing down liquor
My soul, it gets sicker
But I’m sticking to the screenplay
Gotta say I’m okay, but answer this, babe
How is it now that, somehow, you’re a strangеr?
You were mine just yеsterday
I pray the block in my airway dissipates
And instead deters your airplane’s way

Pre-Chorus
But heaven denied
Destiny decried
Something beautiful died
Too soon

Chorus
But I’m letting go
I’m giving up the ghost
But don’t get me wrong
I’ll always love you, that’s why I
Wrote you this very last song
I guess this is where we say goodbye
I know I’ll be alright
Someday, I’ll be fine
But just not tonight (Ooh)

Verse 3
Plunging into all kinds of diversions
Like blush wine and sonorous soirées
But even with gin and surging adrenaline
I see you’re all that can intoxicate
Oceans and engines, you’re skilled at infringing
On great love affairs
‘Cause now my heart’s home, all I’ve known is long gone
And ten thousand miles away

Pre-Chorus
And I’m not okay

Chorus
But I’m letting go
I’m giving up the ghost
But don’t get me wrong
I’ll always love you, that’s why I
Wrote you this very last song
I guess this is where we say goodbye
I know I’ll be alright
But just not

Bridge
Tonight was the first time I stared into
Seas of beguiling sepia two years ago
And the first time I
Learned real world superpowers lived in three words
They revitalized my fraying bones, oh
Now what do you do when your
Pillar crumbled down, you’ve lost all solid ground
Both dreams and demons drowned and this void’s all you’ve found
And doubts light it aglow?
I have so many questions
But I’m pouring them into the ocean and I’m starting up my engine

Chorus
And I’m letting go
I’m giving up your ghost
It’s come to a close
I marked the end with this last song I wrote
I’m letting go
This is the last falsetto
I’ll ever sing to you, my great, lost love
