lyrics

Sweetheart, above all else there's no one left below
So I, must too go on.
It's with a heavy heart I give these orders to my men
to get them home.

You let your fire go out, my love.
But does it help to know you fought a rash of swells and stayed afloat?
You let your tired souls sound alarms.
Tipping back as if to gather one last look at the stars.

What I am is in my blood.
A life above is not enough.
I need to answer these calls that I've received,
before setting course back home to you.

We're in a constant standoff to appease,
and keep this situation calm.
We have to look for if we don't these mounting pressures may begin to call our bluff.
Come what may, we will stand tall.
Til we hear those echoes call.

(Chorus)

And if the rain should wash the docks clean,
And if the radio waves should fill the air,
And if the ropes between these two walls should begin to lose their edge.

And if the rain should wash the docks clean,
And if the radio waves should fill the air,
And if the ropes between these two walls should begin to lose their edge.
