lyrics

When the seagulls gather at the dock
To wish your body a gentle flight
I’ll be sitting on that barnacled rock
Watching the tides roll into the night

I took a train into the city
I watched the sunset by the salty air
And not that it’s not pretty
But it’s not the same dear, without you there

Cause I’m drowning in these days
Just trying to find the ways
To turn this ship around
Head back to you

And your heart is black and blue
But mine seems set on you
I know I let you down
But I need you around

That whistling wind flares in through your window
Your ghost is in a constant crescendo
My friends are turning into shadows and strangers
My head is filled with a dark dread of dangers

And the earth she’s rushing things, and I’m just here plucking strings
Wishing, thinking, how things could be different
And I know I hadn’t come since the thousandth sun
But I told you to hold on, why couldn’t you have just held on

Cause I’m drowning in these days
Just trying to find the ways
To turn this ship around
Head back to you
And your heart is black and blue
But mine seems set on you
I know I let you down
I always do

And I’m breaking up these days
And finding now that I am made
Of slats of what we were
And crumbs of eyeless faith
I’m tired of cold wet seas
I'm just trying to catch a breeze
To turn this ship around
Sail back to you
