Well when you say 'run',
you know I’ll run too
And when you wake
you know I’ll come to

And bless all the things that we can’t undo
‘cause you know that they have brought me here, you

And I have wronged you once, but not again
I have wronged you twice, my lover friend
I have wronged you without any end
and I’d do it all to be here again

And tonight we’ll breathe the salt and spray
as we live to see another day
This is all I ask for when I pray
as we go on our merry way

We are both of us a mighty bore
against all currents at the fore
And now we will hear nevermore
the pride in our once-feeble roar

And tonight we’ll breathe the salt and spray
as we live to see another day
This is all I ask for when I pray
as we go on our merry way

And tonight, tonight a sailor is born
with snow in his eyes and slack in his jaw
and there are too many lights and not enough loss
to make effect worth less than the cost
