Kishi Bashi Lyrics


"Annie, Heart Thief Of The Sea"

If you want to see my girl
You better be ready, Imma show you the world
On a beach and on the shore
I’ll tell you a story and it’s all about a pearl
Three feet wide and crystal clear
It glistened in the sun it had nothing to fear
Many came from near and far
There was nothing like the beauty that they saw

I was sailing on the sea
There was nothing as far as I could see
When a vision of a girl
Blinded my eyes, she’s as pretty as a pearl
Swam along with us awhile
I was hooked, I was smitten by her smile
When she traded me her heart
I took it from her hand…

Why’d you give me your heart, Annie?
What’d I do?
Why’d you take my heart, Annie?
All you left me was a pearl

When I looked into my palm
I was swallowed by the vision that I saw
In this pearl of perfect white
I saw us together in a union of delight
When I looked into her eyes
I saw nothing but the mirror of the skies
I dove deep into the cold
I was ready to be…

Why’d you give me your heart, Annie?
What’d I do?
Why’d you take my heart, Annie?
All you left me was a pearl

When they pulled me from the cold
I wondered why I’d never felt so old
For my hair had turned to white
I’d long been dead and so had my wife
She had died of a broken heart
She was lookin’ for my…

Why’d you give me your heart, Annie?
What’d I do?
Why’d you take my heart, Annie?
All you left me was a pearl
