Even if you have a friend
And you give her half your life
Don't think you can't blow the whole thing down
And I could say it is my place
To speak of you so openly
Cause you never hid your hand from anyone

And we're in this boat together babe
And we said it when we pushed away the shore now
And we're in this boat together babe
And you'll bare your soul to anyone

And if i had a wish
I'd give it straight to you now
Cause you look so unsure of when you're coming down
And if you're coming down

And we're in this boat together babe
And we said it when we pushed away the shore now
And we're in this boat together babe
And we're left without a leg to stand

And we're in this mess together babe
And we said it when we pushed away the shore now
And we're in this mess together babe
And only the truth can get us back up on the shore

    General CommentAbout being in a relationship with someone who you blame totally for the soon-to-happen break up. Someone who, even after you've given them "half your life" shocks you when you realise what they're really, really like (blow the whole thing down) and someone who, even though they seem to be open and honest with everyone else, whenever they talk to you, you think they're lying. Which makes you jealous...

    So, when you sit down with each other, and pull the whole relationship apart, you realise that you've been just as guilty of whatever crime in the past too. So you're literally equally to blame for the whole breakdown. You're in that boat together. And you know the only way back is for you both to put your hands up and go "yeah, I did this.....and I did that.." and for all of the truths between you both to be revealed....
