let this one go, take your steps back
this boat has passed, this boat has passed
cross over the bridge, walk down through the park, by the swingset
you'll find me there, you'll find me there

oh lord when this rain clears the spring will return
will all my hopes fade? will this boat be saved?
& down to the cliffs by the ocean i followed it
into the sea
into the sea

oh my ship was sailing!
oh as my star faded
down
down down down to the sea
i let go

the winds would blow through here like nothing before
the sleeping sky left in awe
and lay atop rocks with my face to the sky
and tide closing in
and the tide closing in

oh my ship was sailing!
oh as my star faded
down
down down down to the sea
i let go

oh my ship was sailing!
oh as my star faded, my ship was sailing
as my star faded
down
down down down to the sea
as it washed over me
i let go
