lyrics

Not hard to believe that the bottom just fell out
Not hard to believe I haven’t learned to do without
The saber rattles, and the saber falls
And the sharpened end will fall upon us all
But there’s a weight in my heart
That I’ve carried alone
No light is shed down here
We both leave on our own
Those once-warm feelings
Have now grown cold again
And like a cough that won't quit
You return and then
Nothing rattles and nothing shines
And nothing remains beyond what is yours
And what is mine
But there's a flame in my heart
That burns bright on its own
But its glare needs two to share
And this I should've known
We go one by land then two by sea
And if you still remember me
This is a plea that goes to you from me
And all the ships at sea
Though there’s a rope
Don’t climb down from hope
Let the nets you’ve cast break free
This is a plea that goes to you from me
To all the ships at sea
But there's a flame in my heart
That burns bright on its own
And if there's any blame to claim
I'll take it as my own
But before you go please don't say
"I told you so" - not this time
Because every glare and backwards stare
Reminds me of a time
When I was in my prime
We go one by land then two by sea
And if you still remember me
This is a plea that goes to you from me
And all the ships at sea
Though there’s a rope
Don’t climb down from hope
Let the nets you’ve cast break free
This is a plea that goes to you from me
To all the ships at sea
