I awake to the oceans and curves along the shore
'Better' lies inside our minds
I awake to the water breaking in my bedroom
I'll let it in my lungs
Before I let you in my heart again

Take this time to talk yourself out of it
Then buy a lesson in keeping secrets
Because anything you say can and will be held against you
No matter what I said
Remember when innocense was all we had to sell?
Before long this ship will have gone to hell and back
Anything you say can and will be held against you
No matter what I said

I awake to the oceans and curves along the shore
Better lies were inside our minds
I awake to the water breaking in my bedroom
I'll let it in my lungs
Before I let you in my heart again

[Chorus]

My body will break before my heart is thrown overboard

(This mistake will be the last one you're allowed to make
My heart goes overboard with your conscience and your tolerance
It floats like my body after midnight
Tonight will be your last chance to pray for me so go on...)

[Chorus]
